Draft Grades: Falcons Triumph With Trufant

Draft Grade: B-

The Picks:
1. Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

2. Robert Alford, CB, Southeast Louisiana

3. Malliciah Goodman, DE, Clemson

4. Levine Toilolo, TE, Stanford

5. Stansly Maponga, DE, Texas Christian

6. Kemal Ishmael, DB, Central Florida

7. Zeke Motta, SS, Notre Dame

8. Sean Renfree, QB, Duke

Biggest Needs: 

  • DE
  • CB
  • LB


What they did right:

Both moving up to get the NFL-ready CB Trufant and taking CB Alford with their second pick should help improve their secondary.


What they did wrong:

They added plenty of depth-type players, but not enough difference makers to enable them to catch the Niners and Seahawks.
