Saints rookie progress report heading into week 4

2 of 8

Marshon Lattimore, cornerback, pick #11

Marshon Lattimore sat out the week 3 game against the Panthers after he suffered a concussion against the Pats a week earlier. In week 2 though, he was only responsible for 28 of Tom Brady’s 447 passing yards.

That week Pro Football Focus ranked him as the 3rd best cornerback in the league – tied with Chris Harris.

That he has held his own at such an important position through 2 games as a rookie shows that the professional level isn’t too much for him. In fact, Lattimore is shining.

If he can keep up his solid play and avoid any significant injuries, he’ll live up to his first-round status sooner rather than later.
