New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore was recently ranked among the top ten cornerbacks in the NFL by a national publication.

Athlon Sports lists Lattimore at #6, among the top cornerbacks, heading into the 2018 season.

The 22-year old Lattimore, who was taken with the 11th-overall pick by the Saints in the 2017 NFL Draft, had a great rookie season, recording 52 tackles and five interceptions.

For his efforts, Lattimore was selected to the Pro Bowl, and was tabbed the Defensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press.

Another good year or two by Lattimore, and many may begin to put him at the top of their respective lists.

Former LSU, and current Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson was named the top cornerback in the league by the publication.
