Washington may as well call its Pro Day “Desmond Trufant Day” this year. Outside of Trufant, only center Drew Schaefer is considered to have a shot at being drafted, and his is a long, long, long one.

And, Trufant is making moves. He’s caught the attention of CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang, who thinks Trufant may be moving into the first round because of his good practices leading up to the Senior Bowl.

Rang says:

“Trufant, currently NFLDraftScout.com’s No. 5 rated cornerback, demonstrated great quickness, anticipation and competitiveness in Tuesday’s practice, allowing just two receptions despite often drawing the toughest assignments the North team had to offer. He showed the ability to handle pure speed, running stride for stride with Oregon State speedster Markus Wheaton and size, as well, handling Marshall’s 6-3, 205 pound Aaron Dobson, the two most impressive receivers for the North team during Tuesday’s practice.”

Here’s Rang’s full report from the Senior Bowl , much of it about Trufant.
