The New Orleans Saints have selected cornerback Marshon Lattimore with the 11th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Lattimore spent three seasons with the Buckeyes but had a wonderful 2016 campaign by starting all 13 games and being named first-team all-Big Ten Conference by the league’s coaches. This talented performer, who had two seasons of eligibility remaining, was second on the team with four interceptions and he also contributed 41 tackles and nine pass break-ups for 13 total passes defended on the year.
Lattimore had career-high nine tackles and seven solo stops in the overtime win at Wisconsin … red-shirted the 2014 season and played in seven games in 2015 for 20 total games played.
