Draft 2013

Pick No.22

Selected By: Atlanta Falcons

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 22 (22)

Pick Analysis: Desmond is looking to become the third Trufant brother to play professional football. Marcus has been a regular starter for the Seattle Seahawks since they picked him in the first round out of Washington State in 2003. Isaiah starred at Eastern Washington before playing in the Arena Football League and becoming the UFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 2010 before finally getting his shot with the Jets the past two seasons.

Trufant started 45 straight games before missing a game against Colorado this year. He was named honorable mention All-Pac 12 by league coaches in 2009, intercepting two passes (one that sealed the team's win against Arizona) and breaking up six others. His numbers dropped in 2010 (one interception, four pass breakups) before picking up again in another honorable mention all-conference season as a junior (two interceptions, 14 pass breakups). His pick in the end zone in the season opener against Isaiah's alma mater prevented a disastrous home loss for the Huskies. As a senior, Trufant grabbed one pick, broke up eight passes, forced a fumble, and blocked a kick. His play earned him 2012 All-Pac-12 first-team honors.
