The Atlanta Falcons have signed cornerback Robert Alford, who was their second-round pick (60th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Alford played college football at Southeastern Louisiana. While there, he totaled 10 interceptions and 21 pass deflections.
He’s expected to compete with Robert McClain for the starting nickel spot. There’s also a chance he could be placed on punt return duty to take advantage of his speed.
The Falcons currently have two unsigned draft picks: cornerback Desmond Trufant (first round; 22nd overall) and quarterback Sean Renfree (seventh round; 249th overall).
