The Atlanta Falcons attacked their biggest positional need in the draft when they moved up eight spots to take Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant in the first round with pick No. 22 and then followed that up in the second round with Southeastern Louisiana cornerback Robert Alford with pick No. 60.
The Falcons selected eight players in all during the 2013 NFL draft, but they still need to fill an offseason roster that can grow all the way to 90 players.
That’s where undrafted free agents come in.

Which players do the Falcons have their eyes on? Which players had their agents dial up general manager Thomas Dimitroff shortly after the draft?
Here’s an undrafted free agent tracker to keep up with the comings and goings of post-draft rookie transactions.
