Marshon Lattimore
The No. 11 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft returned to full action for the first time in quite a while during the New Orleans Saints’ joint practice sessions with the Chargers.



Sean Payton said he anticipates Lattimore receiving his first dose of game action in Sunday’s preseason game at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. The Saints absolutely need this piece of positivity within the cornerback group given Delvin’s Breaux’s likely absence to start the season.
Lattimore saw team snaps on Thursday and Friday with the first and second defensive units. The first-round cornerback received more of a trial by fire Friday when Lattimore took some first-team snaps. Philip Rivers completed a couple of throws on Lattimore, but the defensive back forced some incompletions as well.
Lattimore absolutely needs to be ready to start in Week 1 at Minnesota. This will be the first step to making that reality.

Ryan Ramczyk
The Saints’ second first-round pick from this year’s crop sat out the preseason opener at Cleveland. Like Lattimore, Ramczyk will make his NFL debut Sunday afternoon in So Cal.
We know Ramczyk will start Week 1 at left tackle with Terron Armstead possibly out the entire season with a shoulder injury. Ramczyk hasn’t missed nearly as much time as Lattimore, so we’ve been able to watch some solid work from the tackle already in camp.
Ramczyk had some positive and negative moments during the joint practices with the Chargers. At times, Ramczyk held his own against Chargers pass rusher Melvin Ingram in the run game and individual pass rush drills. At other times, Ingram got the best of Ramczyk.
This was to be expected.
Ramczyk will line up opposite Ingram or Bosa for a few snaps Sunday – a great test for the rookie tackle.

This is the game we should see all the rookies get some game action and in good matchups...

Ryan Ramczyk vs Melvin Ingram/Joey Bosa

Marcus Williams vs Phillip Rivers

Alvin Kamara vs Denzel Perryman

Alex Anzalone vs Antonio Gates/Melvin Gordon

Trey Hendrickson vs Joe Barksdale

Perryman tore up his ankle in pre season #1. He'll be out a few months.

Kamara should eat.

Bet they wished they'd kept Te'o now...Chargers have had bad luck in that, haven't they...Drew?

I missed that news on Perryman...

Re: 7 Saints players to watch vs. Chargers in second preseason game

I'd put Arthur Maulet in there rather than some of those other guys. We know Williams and Lattimore are starting outside, but there's a battle for that nickel CB spot and this will be our first look at Maulet.

Nice read. I am looking forward to seeing what these guys are going to bring.

I also want to see what our dline looks like too.

Keenan Allen is probably going to feast on whoever covers him. He's trying to prove himself post injury. If Lattimore can hold up with him, he can hold up with anybody. We need to pressure Rivers though. This is not an elite offensive line.

Once again what can the secondary do will be the big question.

I think our D line is going to be a lot better. Especially if Kikaha stays healthy and can contribute consistently at that position. Okafor is a good fit and I think Jordan is going to have a career year. I just want to see pass rush. Don't care where it comes from or how.
