Who else but Desmond Trufant?

In 2014, he finished the season with 61 tackles, 18 passes defensed, tied for the fifth most in a single season by an Atlanta Falcons defender, three interceptions and one fumble recovery. And if that weren’t enough success, he wants to take his game to “another level.”

"“I’m trying to take my game to the next level,” Trufant said to “I feel I don’t get the respect I deserve, because I felt I was playing as good as anybody at my position. I’m just going to keep working; that’s just going to make me hungrier. I’m going to get better. I’m going to be two times better next year. I’m going to be ready when it’s time to go.”"

A case could be made that Trufant is the best player on the Atlanta Falcons whole roster. He’s already one of the best at his position, and is already known around the league.

Well there you have it folks. The list ends on a high note with Trufant leading the list.
