Lattimore Defensive Rookie Of The Year?
 
Quote:

Cornerback Marshon Lattimore is playing the kind of shut-down defense for the scorching-hot New Orleans Saints that should make him a front-runner for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

But he's doing something that ESPN analyst and former NFL safety Matt Bowen says is even more valuable.

"He has the potential to be a guy that can play solo coverage by himself. I think that's more important than any awards," Bowen said. "You can say, 'We're gonna roll our safety away from Lattimore today, because we know he can lock that guy down.' You know how much freedom that gives you as a defensive coordinator?"

Lattimore has had more of an impact than others on their respective teams...

But Pittsburgh's Watt will have name recognition and media market bias on his side...

Former LSU DB Tre' White has been equally effective with the surprising Bills...

It's sixteen games so let's see it play out...

And with Hunt already seemingly hitting the rookie wall early, who knows, maybe Lattimore could get serious recognition for Rookie of the Year?!?

Unless the Saints make a push for the division title and he starts racking up INTs he won't get it.

The NFL awards go to big media teams,flashy plays,offense first and big stats. Over actual useful stats.

I want to thank Kansas City for trading up. The Bills would have most definitely draft Lattimore and the saints more than likely would've pass on (LSU) tredavious white.

Lattimore is who I wanted but didn't think it was possible. I was jumping around like it was 09 and we recovered a onside kick when they called his name. Kids thought I lost my mind and now they see why.
