Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

Marshon Lattimore is definitely a keeper in this position. His athleticism and technique proved to be very valuable to the team. He has the speed and quickness to hang with all NFL-caliber receivers, and his skills never came into question.

Looking back three years later, Lattimore is the glue that holds the New Orleans Saints secondary together. He is the bond that has proven to raise the heights of the secondary to be what it is today. He is the reason the secondary is as talented as it is.

This was a hard one to keep, though. The Houston Texans drafted Deshaun Watson right after Lattimore. Marlon Humphrey, a standout cornerback from Alamba, was still on the table, as well as Adoree Jackson from USC.

The biggest question mark though was Tre’Davious White who is now with the Buffalo Bills. He would be the only player I would have considered adding over Marshon Lattimore, but I still think Lattimore has more leadership qualities than White even if they have the same skill level.
