Being an experienced NFL prospect is another trait a lot of scouts and fans overlook.
A four-year starter, Trufant jumped onto the field as a true freshman in 2009, playing all the way through his senior season.
The knowledge, improvement and football smarts he experienced during his time at Washington are traits that may prove to be invaluable come draft day.
There's an old train of thought that says nothing teaches better than experience. And no matter what field you apply that logic to, it holds up. Plus, having two brothers who played in the NFL (Marcus and Isaiah Trufant), isn't the worst thing to have when it comes to gaining experience.
For all of the pro days, film sessions and scouting trips, Desmond Trufant is coming out school as a very seasoned and polished NFL prospect.
