NFL Draft 2013: Desmond Trufant has bright NFL future

With his college career over, Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant will now try to become the third member of his family to make an NFL roster this spring. Trufant was named to this year's All-Pac 12 first team.

While Saturday's 28-26 loss to Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl marked a disappointing end to Washington's season, it is only the beginning of a football journey for Huskies' Desmond Trufant. The Washington senior cornerback is projected as a mid-round pick in this spring's NFL Draft.

In the Las Vegas Bowl, Trufant capped a memorable career which saw him start 48 straight games dating back to his true freshman season. In the process, Trufant was named honorable mention All-Pac 12 as a junior, while garnering All-Pac 12 First Team honors this fall. His senior season ended with 27 solo tackles and an interception.

Now it is time for Trufant to turn his attention to the pros, where he could become the third member of his family to make an NFL roster. His oldest brother Marcus is a former first round draft pick who has spent his whole career with the Seattle Seahawks, while his middle brother Isaac currently plays for the New York Jets.

The youngest Trufant is currently rated as the No. 43 player overall by CBS Sports and No. 5 cornerback currently in this year's draft class.
