The New Orleans Saints considered trading up in the first round on Thursday night, but didn't have to when Marshon Lattimore was available at No. 11.

The Saints have been looking at cornerback help all offseason and sat through a run of offensive skill players leading up to their pick.

"Just through a lot of the different scenarios, he was one of the players that we felt would be difficult maybe to anticipate him being there, but things happen," Sean Payton said.
