New Orleans Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore lined up at right cornerback Wednesday during a team-related drill at mandatory minicamp and found himself locked up against wide receiver Michael Thomas.

At the snap of the ball, Thomas took off down the left sideline and appeared to have a step on the young defender.



Quarterback Drew Brees spotted Thomas and unleashed a deep pass to his wide receiver, but Lattimore quickly closed the gap before leaping to knock the ball away as both players fell to the ground.

The play drew a loud roar from the fans in attendance, but the Saints' first-round pick out of Ohio State wasn't finished.

This defense is going to surprise those that are too lazy to learn of all the changes. Talking heads are still thinking they are the same squad as last season with the same coaching as last season. I see great potential for major improvement on all three levels of the defense. That can dramatically affect the defense overall. This can become a strength for the Saints, rather than a huge weakness.

So long as we stay healthy! There appears to be a definite upgrade in LB and DB talent but we still need consistent pressure from the DL.

Hopefully improved coverage will buy the DL that extra second that will turn what was near the top of the league in QB hits into sacks and turnovers.

Good coaching will go a long way in his development. The sky is the limit.

Lattimore was a steal @ #11.

LOL Smash ...

I don't think the Saints FO have ever drafted a young kid like Lattimore at the position. The comparisons range from Janoris Jenkins, Vontea Davis to Patrick Peterson. I'm expecting to see the impact in coverage EARLY & QB's stay away from his side of the field. I'm so glad we didn't pick Mahomes. Marcus just feels like the right pick.

Blue chip talent with all the tools. Bring it.

It's nice to have an eye for talent on the defensive side of the ball......it's even nicer when players fall into your lap.
