The New Orleans Saints announced that they’ve officially signed six draft picks including signed first-round CB Marshon Lattimore to four-year rookie contracts.
The other players signed include:
- S Marcus Williams (second round)
- RB Alvin Kamara (third round)
- LB Alex Anzalone (third round)
- DE Trey Hendrickson (third round)
- DE Al-Quadin Muhammad (sixth round)
This leaves first-round OT Ryan Ramczyk as the only remaining player for the Saints to sign.
It’s worth mentioning that Nick Underhill first reported that the Saints had agreed to terms with all of their draft picks other than Ramczyk yesterday, so this is just confirmation from the team.
Lattimore, 20, was selected with the No. 11 overall pick by the Saints in this year’s draft. Many viewed Lattimore as the top cornerback prospect in this year’s draft and felt that he was likely to come off the board at some point in the first five picks.
However, Lattimore’s fell right into the Saints’ lap and just happens to fit a major need for New Orleans.
According to OverTheCap.com, Lattimore will receive a four-year contract worth $15,359,736, which includes a signing bonus of $9,310,716. The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.
During his college career, Lattimore recorded 45 tackles, four interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown and 11 pass defenses over the course of 16 games.
