FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The first day of mandatory minicamp was a solid showing by the Atlanta Falcons' secondary, specifically Robert Alford.
The second-year cornerback was all over the field making plays on the ball. He showed great recovery speed on a few deep balls and nearly had at least one interception.
To keep things in perspective, Alford wasn't going up against Julio Jones or Roddy White. Regardless, he showed flashes of the great future he has alongside fellow starting cornerback Desmond Trufant.
