smh lol

Trufant is a nice pick. He has LOTS of experience and can step in from day one and start opposite Samuel.

it wasnt Eifert or Werner. im happy. a little upset that we didnt grab Floyd but Trufant is a great pick for this secondary. now we jus need to grab someone like Okafor in the 2nd and we will be jus fine.

I love this pick. We needed a CB. I feel as though Abe will be back if we don't go pass rusher in round 2

how exactly will you guarantee it? DO you have a crystal ball?

Ignorant comments like these are getting really old around here. We have 1.5 corners that are serviceable, thoughts that we definitely should take a end over a corner are absurd.

Trufant is a very good corner and much more scheme diverse than Rhodes. Great pick.

IN TD I trust except when it comes to cb's.(Chevis, Franks, Owens, etc.....) I Hope this one pans out. Wont matter anyway if we cant get a consistent pass rush.

Woud've been a better pick at #30. OK pick still I guess. Better make that 2nd rdr count TD. No diamond in the rough please. Btw DEANDRE HOPKINS IS A TEXAN. Congrats kinfolk. Houston here we come. Smile

Am I the only one jumping up and down screaming my head off? Love this guy, and he will be a staple in this defense for years to come. Go defensive line in round two, and this draft couldn't get any better.

I like Trufant,. I just think we couldve had him at #30. I Guess TD didnt wanna take that chance. Sorta reminds of me of when he panicked and moved up for Sam Baker when we needed a Tackle. I like this pick better than I liked that one though.

Can't believe so many people are upset about this pick, Trufant was one of the top players available and fills what is without a doubt the biggest need on our team

I sincerely doubt jumping ahead of Minnesota was a coincidence, especially since they picked rhodes @ 25. He did what he had to do.
