Falcons roster review: A post-draft look at CB

Cornerback was a problem spot for the Falcons in 2018. Desmond Trufant had a couple of bad games in an otherwise quality year, Robert Alford was hurt and had perhaps his worst NFL season as a result, Brian Poole was solid but still suffered through some shaky coverage, and the team’s depth was questionable outside of Blidi Wreh-Wilson, who barely got on the field. The late growth of Isaiah Oliver was a rare bright spot, but it was beyond aggravating to see the Falcons trot Alford out week after week in light of what we’ve learned about his injury, especially with Oliver and Wreh-Wilson largely parked.
