Draft a Cornerback

The second weakest position early on in the season for the New Orleans Saints besides wide receiver was at cornerback. Marshon Lattimore was lockdown, but Eli Apple left so many open holes, he was beaten on every play.

Luckily he’s a free agent so the New Orleans Saints can let him walk. When Apple went down late in the season, the Saints signed free agent Janoris Jenkins who they hope will keep. However, we will see need a backup cornerback and where better to find one and groom one than the draft.

There are two specifically that I hope they choose to target — one early and one late. Early one, I like TCU cornerback Jeff Gladney. He would offer a great upside to fill in for Jenkins or Lattimore should they need it.

He has a quality skillset and is willing to learn. The late-round option is Noah Igbinoghene, an elite talent cornerback out of Auburn. He would allow them to draft a wide receiver in the first round and look for him later on in the draft.
