Hail Buckeyes! The Saints add another player from The Ohio St. University. Lattimore will join WR Michael Thomas and S Vonn Bell from last year’s draft. Both those picks seem more than worthy. Lattimore will bring some more of that Buckeye magic to the Black and Gold. Lattimore is a third year redshirt sophomore, and he had four interceptions last year.

Mel Kiper had this to say about Lattimore:

"“When you look at Lattimore, every time you watched him you saw a guy that could be a shutdown corner. He was able to elevate his game and a player that really jumped out at you as a player. The one guy that I think has a chance to be one of the top three corners in the league is Lattimore. “"

Kiper has Lattimore going very early to the Jets. Hopefully, the Saints will get a crack at taking Lattimore. Additionally, Lattimore could be a key piece lacking in the secondary in 2017. Especially, with all the injuries sustained the past year. Lattimore could come in and start playing right away.
