Trufant (6) had an outstanding Senior Bowl week, which has shot him into the first round.

The Colts need a starting cornerback, and corner is one of the thinner positions in free agency this offseason. Chances are the Colts will exit free agency with a lot of holes in their secondary, and need to look for big-time talent to help fill those holes.
Trufant may be that talent. He has the size and length to be a very good press man corner, but also has experience and skill to be able to disguise and run other coverages as well. He's shown great hips and fluidity over the past year, and can cover just about anybody. He had a very strong senior season, and looks to be a late first rounder.
If the Colts could trade down a few slots and still pick up Trufant, that would be ideal, but that may not be possible, especially if he measures out well at the combine.
