2020 NFL Draft: Top 10 players the New Orleans Saints should consider with the 24th pick
Jeff Gladney, CB, Texas Christian University
Jeff Gladney is probably the cornerback in this draft class that you have never heard of. This dynamic redshirt senior has used all of his college football career to better himself and his game. Every facet of the role of a cornerback Jeff Gladney personifies.
He is extremely athletic and is not afraid to tackle in the run game. He reads routes well and understands the leverage he has and how to get a high one. He breaks fast on the ball out of routes and uses his vision to read the play.
The biggest compromise to Gladney’s game is that he can be better at taking advantage of the offensive mistakes. He reads them well, but he needs to be better on acting on those reads. He needs to clean up his physicality on the downfield run too.
Player Comparison: Atlanta Falcons, CB, Desmond Trufant
The New Orleans Saints can use the 24th pick in the draft to undoubtedly help one of their weaker areas. Most of these top ten players come from two positions — wide receiver and cornerback. Either one would be a needed playmaker for the Saints.
