Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore named Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year

New Orleans Saints CB Marshon Lattimore has been selected as the Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, the first time that a Saint has won the award.

Lattimore, the 11th overall pick by the Saints out of Ohio State, enjoyed a standout season as he is the only the fourth cornerback in franchise history to be selected to the Pro Bowl and the first since Eric Allen in 1995 and joined fellow rookie, RB Alvin Kamara as one of only seven Saints rookies selected. The Cleveland, Ohio native started all 13 games he played in and posted 53 tackles (44 solo), a club-best five interception returns for 85 yards with one returned for a touchdown, a team-high 18 passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Lattimore's five picks were ranked first among NFL rookies and tied for fifth in the league overall.
