Teams Who Could Trade Up For Desmond Trufant

In my current mock I have the Patriots trading in front of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and selecting Desmond Trufant. The Patriots' cornerback situation is up in the air, Aquib Talib is a free agent, with off the field problems, and Alfonzo Dennard is a young corner facing legal charges. New England really has struggled with in their secondary within the past few years. I think they might want to get a franchise corner in this year's draft. Desmond Trufant has really been sky-rocketing up this year's draft board after the Senior Bowl and Combine.
Another team that is a possibility is the San Francisco 49ers. Their secondary's coverage ability was highly exposed during the Super Bowl. Right now they are in talks with Darrelle Revis, but the Jets want two to three first round picks, which the 49ers seem uninterested in at this moment. The 49ers have twelve to fifteen picks this year, so trading up doesn't seem like a problem for them this year. I could see them trading their first round pick and two second round picks to move up to a pick around the teens.
