New Orleans Saints: Top 3 cornerback options in the first round
If you have followed the Saints over the past week, you will know that the team is preparing for a big upcoming draft. In the middle of the preparation, star cornerback Marshon Lattimore was arrested while in Ohio.
While the outcome of his arrest is still undetermined, we don’t know if the league will take any further action after that. It seems doubtful, but with the NFL, you never know. The Saints will probably need to target a cornerback in the first round of this NFL Draft regardless.
With the developing news surrounding Marshon Lattimore, do the Saints push to target a cornerback in the first round of the NFL Draft now?
This list knocks out two cornerbacks that will for sure go above the Saints picks — Caleb Farley from Virginia Tech and Patrick Surtain from Alabama. Unless the Saints trade up to get one of these guys, they will not fall.
After the two of them, there are still prospects on the list that will be able to step up and potentially start for the Saints whether it be alongside Marshon Lattimore or in his absence. Here are the top three prospects with the Saints No. 28 pick.
