The 2022 NFL Draft is a little over a week away. With that in mind, let’s take a peek at the New Orleans Saints’ depth chart at the cornerback position.
Cornerback has always been a big need for the New Orleans Saints but that isn’t necessarily the case this year. The team has a strong duo of Marshon Lattimore and Paulson Adebo leading the charge for them.
They might plan to add some depth in the draft, which is never a bad idea but if they don’t, they have one of the better starting duos in the league at the position. Adding depth probably is a smart strategy though, as the team doesn’t have a ton of great depth behind their key starters.
New Orleans also brought back P.J. Williams this offseason, which was huge considering the season he had in 2021. Williams should be able to slide in as the starting slot corner for this year.
Let’s check out the team’s depth at the cornerback position and evaluate how things might change for the team depending on the players they add either in the draft or as undrafted free agents.
