Marcus Trufant plays cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks. Isaiah Trufant does the same for the New York Jets.

And now comes Desmond Trufant. The University of Washington product is competing here at the Senior Bowl, and is on the verge of becoming the third brother in the family to reach the NFL.

"It just happened like that," he said. "I can't even explain it. They'd probably say something different. But I feel like the position kind of chose me. Because I played every position in high school. Quarterback, receiver, running back. I could've been anything else, but I just felt like my skills, and what I'm good at, translates to the corner position."

Speed is one of his calling cards — he hopes to run a 4.4 either at the NFL scouting combine or his pro day. And he has worked to improve his tackling in run support.

Trufant said there was no pressure from his brothers to follow in their footsteps at corner.

"No sir," he said. "I looked at it as an opportunity. Because of the name on my back, more people are gonna be looking at me. I'm going to be under a microscope — good or bad. So I just looked at it as an opportunity to make an even bigger name for the family."

Trufant said his brothers have talked to him about what to expect from the pre-draft process, and what it takes to play in the NFL.

"But I think the biggest thing has just been watching 'em over the years," he said. "Just watching so many NFL games over the years, I'm just taking notes and learning things that I can use in my game."

Are there any more Trufants on he way up?

"I've got some nephews," Trufant said, laughing.
