Saints rookie Marshon Lattimore in good hands during break before training camp



BY HERBIE TEOPE hteope@nola.com,
NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

With minicamp in the books, the New Orleans Saints are officially on a month-long hiatus before reporting for training camp in late July.

Rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore, however, doesn't plan to stray far from football activities and will immerse himself in the playbook.

The first-round pick won't be alone in his quest to absorb information on the nuances of playing cornerback in the NFL, as Lattimore has plenty of assistance from friends in the defensive backfield.

"I'm getting with Kenny (Vaccaro) and (Delvin) Breaux and we're going to go through the playbook and just film," Lattimore said during the recently-concluded mandatory minicamp. "They're going to show me what to look for in certain situations, just things like that, and then I'm going to go with Vonn (Bell) after that."

A rookie player choosing to study and train with veteran teammates before training camp isn't new, of course.

But what strikes the Saints veteran defensive backs the most about their rookie teammate surrounds Lattimore's humility, which the 11th overall pick of the NFL Draft has displayed since reporting for the offseason workout program.

The 6-foot, 192-pound Lattimore arrived with impressive credentials out of Ohio State, where he notched 41 tackles (30 solo), four interceptions and nine passes defensed in 2016 en route to an All-Big 10 selection.

I really think this kid will be an impact player. The whole secondary (if they can remain healthy) can quickly turn around this defense.

Re: Saints rookie Marshon Lattimore in good hands during break before training camp

Not so far fetched to compare him with Patrick Peterson during his last year at LSU. The closing speed on Lattimore is flat out ridiculous. When you watch his tape, he seems to be a couple of steps behind and I truly think he does this on purpose. Just to bait that QB into throwing in his direction.

Can't wait for training camp.

Hardly the greatest hands ever but will have to do.

Re: Saints rookie Marshon Lattimore in good hands during break before training camp

For where Lattimore was drafted, selected he must be an impact player on this defense immediately...

While, he may not be an immediate shut-down corner, we must see a huge reduction on 3rd & long conversions and with his play a big part of that improvement...

Irregardless, it really is going to come down to a legit base package (four lineman, no blitz) pass rush...

What's up with Lattimore's red helmet cover?
