The Bears would be wise to consider drafting Marshon Lattimore
- Despite free-agent signings of cornerbacks Prince Amukamara, Marcus Cooper, and B.W. Webb this offseason, the Bears still find themselves without an above-average, or grade 80-plus, cornerback.
- In 2016, Ohio State’s Marshon Lattimore allowed an NFL passer rating of 30.2 on balls thrown his way. The class-average passer rating allowed for cornerbacks is an 82.
- An epitome of consistency, there was only one game where Lattimore received a below-average grade (Week 13 vs. Michigan). In this “bad” game, he still only allowed 27 yards on 6 targets.
- Lattimore is also a very efficient tackler. He recorded 37 tackles with 10 stops last season and, more notably, had zero missed tackles.
