The Pac-12's BRUTAL on CB's. Marcus Trufant was torched, ALOT, and he was picked Top 10. It was actually McMillan on KJR who told Robinson he'd make it in NBA, if he ditched football.
Marcus Trufant is still getting torched a lot. As much as i like Nate, putting him on the outside would be suicide, IMO.
Trufant, after he sat out and got his injury straight played solid nickel for us. He had a few games early (The Patriots game comes to mind), but when he got himself healthy, he played really good for us. Now, I think too many people are too hard on Trufant and remember more about that Patriots game than anything else, but really, you can't name too many nickels who weren't burned like toast against the Patriots all season long.
I still would like an upgrade, but I really wonder if people are just parroting others about Trufant sometimes. He really wasn't as bad as many make him out to have been.
