Do the Saints have enough quality cornerback depth?
With the NFC South set to be loaded as ever with talented wide receivers this upcoming season, do the Saints have enough depth at cornerback to survive a major injury?
The 2020 New Orleans Saints may have their best roster in franchise history, with extremely talented players on both sides of the ball.
The Saints did a fantastic job in filling most of the team’s major needs, bringing in wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, signing safety Malcolm Jenkins, and re-signing key players like defensive tackle David Onyemata.
But the one position the Saints surprisingly failed to upgrade was cornerback, which many fans had high on their list of needs heading into the offseason.
Many assumed they may have opted to snag a cornerback in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, but they opted to shore up their offensive line.
Having a great starting duo in Marshon Lattimore and Janoris Jenkins is truly a blessing for the Saints defense, but if either of those players have to miss time, the Saints could be in some serious trouble.
There isn’t much depth behind Lattimore and Jenkins, which is something that should definitely concern the team. However, that could be said for just about every team in the league. Nonetheless, let’s take a look at the team’s backup cornerbacks.
