New Falcons Desmond Trufant, left, and Robert Alford meet in the Senior Bowl

The Falcons selected two cornerbacks with their first and second-round picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, and you might think that two defensive players on two different college teams have never met before.

But the two have, on a big play during the Senior Bowl.

Second-round pick Robert Alford, from Southeastern Louisiana, returned a kick at the Senior Bowl and, as one of the fastest CBs in the game, blazed down the field.

But Desmond Trufant, the Falcons’ first-round pick, is just as fast, and playing against Alford’s South team, caught up with Alford and saved the touchdown. Watch the video of the return below.
