Marshon Demond Lattimore (born May 20, 1996) is an American football cornerback for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Ohio State, and was drafted by the Saints 11th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Early years

Lattimore attended Glenville High School in Cleveland, Ohio. He played cornerback and wide receiver for the football team. As a senior, he was one of six finalists for the U.S. Army Player of the Year Award.[1] Lattimore was rated as a four-star recruit and committed to Ohio State University to play college football.[2]

College career

Lattimore redshirted his first year at Ohio State in 2014 and played in only seven games his redshirt freshman year in 2015, due to hamstring injuries.[3][4][5] He fully recovered from the injuries to become a starter in 2016.[6][7] On November 29, 2016, Lattimore was named First Team All-Big Ten by the coaches.[8]

Professional career

Coming out of Ohio State, Lattimore was projected to be a first round pick by the majority of NFL experts and analysts. He was invited to the NFL Combine, but chose not to perform the bench press, shuttle, and three-cone drill. He attended Ohio State's Pro Day and decided to only run positional drills for scouts and representatives. Although he had a history of hamstring injuries and was limited to a single year of starting experience in college, he was ranked the top cornerback prospect in the draft by, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, NFL analyst Bucky Brooks, and NFL analyst Mike Mayock.[9][10][11] Lattimore was also ranked the fifth best cornerback by Pro Football Focus.[12]

The New Orleans Saints selected Lattimore in the first round (11th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.[15] He was the first of five cornerbacks selected in the first round of the draft.

2017 season: Rookie year

On June 3, 2017, the New Orleans Saints signed Lattimore to a fully guaranteed four-year, $15.35 million contract with a signing bonus of $9.31 million.[16][17]

The Saints were expected to bring Lattimore along slowly and allow him to sit behind starters Delvin Breaux and P. J. Williams and compete for the role as the third cornerback on the depth chart against Ken Crawley and De'Vante Harris.[18] Head coach Sean Payton named him the third cornerback behind P. J. Williams and Ken Crawley after Breaux suffered a fractured fibula on August 16, 2017.[19] He started the first two regular-season games after Crawley was listed as inactive for both.

Lattimore made his NFL debut on Monday Night Football during the Saints' season-opener against the Minnesota Vikings and recorded four solo tackles during the 29-19 loss. The following week, Lattimore made a season-high seven combined tackles, forced a fumble, and deflected two passes during a 36-20 loss against the New England Patriots.[20] He left the game in the fourth quarter and was placed in concussion protocol after colliding with teammate Vonn Bell as they both tackled Brandin Cooks.[21] Lattimore became the starting cornerback prior to Week 4 after Williams was demoted in relation with a disciplinary issue.[22] During Week 6 against the Detroit Lions, Lattimore recorded five combined tackles, deflected two passes, intercepted a pass attempt from quarterback Matthew Stafford, and returned it for a 27-yard touchdown during a 52-38 victory.[23] The interception and touchdown were the first of his career.[24] On November 2, 2017, he was named the NFC Defensive Rookie of the Month.[25] Lattimore missed Weeks 12-13 after suffering an ankle sprain during the Saints' Week 11 victory over the Washington Redskins.[26] On December 21, 2017, it was announced that Lattimore was selected to play in the 2018 Pro Bowl.[27] On December 24, 2017, Lattimore made five combined tackles, four pass deflections, and intercepted his fifth pass of the year off of Matt Ryan in a 23-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Lattimore finished his rookie season with 52 combined tackles (43 solo), 18 pass deflections, five interceptions, and a touchdown in 13 games and 13 starts.[28] His five interceptions were the fifth most of all players in 2017.[29] Lattimore was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and received an overall grade of 90.5 from Pro Football Focus and had the fourth highest grade among all cornerbacks in 2017.[30][31] He was ranked 82nd by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018, one of three rookies to make the list.[32]

The Saints finished atop the NFC South with an 11-5 record. On January 7, 2018, Lattimore started his first playoff game and recorded two solo tackles and a pass deflection during a 31-26 NFC Wild Card round victory over the Carolina Panthers. The following week, he made four solo tackles and deflected a pass in the Saints' 29-24 loss to the Vikings in the NFC Divisional round, which became to be known as the Minneapolis Miracle.[28]

2018 season

During Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lattimore primarily covered wide receiver Mike Evans, who caught 7 passes for 147 yards including a 50 yard touchdown. Due to the Saints' poor play on defense, they lost by a score of 48-40. After the game, Lattimore stated: "It isn't going to get me down. Everybody gets beat. We needed to get slapped in our face one good time to see we're not on a level we think we're on." [33] During Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles, Lattimore made his first interception of the season off of Carson Wentz in a 48-7 victory.[34] During Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys, Lattimore forced Amari Cooper to fumble the ball and recovered it. After the play, Lattimore put $23 into the Salvation Army's Red Kettle by the endzone. The Saints lost 13-10.[35] Two weeks later against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lattimore intercepted Jameis Winston in the endzone and forced a fumble off Chris Godwin in the 28-14 victory. [36]

Lattimore finished the 2018 season with 59 combined tackles, 12 pass deflections, 2 interceptions, 4 forced fumbles, and 3 fumbles recovered in 16 games.[37] He received an overall grade of 74.1 from Pro Football Focus in 2018, which ranked as the 20th highest grade among all qualifying corner backs.[38]

In the 2018 divisional round of the playoffs against the Eagles, Lattimore made two interceptions off of Nick Foles in the 20-14 win. The first came in the second quarter when Lattimore picked off a pass that was intended for tight end Zach Ertz and the second occurred in the fourth quarter when wide receiver Alshon Jeffery dropped a pass that fell into his waiting hands, sealing a Saints win as the Eagles' offense never got the ball back.[39] In the NFC Championship game against the Los Angeles Rams, Lattimore made 6 tackles in the controversial 26-23 overtime loss.[40]

2019 season

During Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, Lattimore recorded a team high 12 tackles in the 33-27 road victory.[41]
