Rookie Saints defensive backs Marshon Lattimore and Marcus Williams both had some highlights in Friday's joint practice with the Chargers in Los Angeles, according to reporters' observations. Lattimore had some highs and lows while getting a lot of snaps with the first string defense – and Saints defensive end Hau'oli Kikaha said he congratulated Lattimore for sticking his head in there on a run-support play. Williams, meanwhile, had an interception against Chargers backup Cardale Jones in full-team drills while playing in center field (his specialty). Neither rookie has won a starting job yet, but both should be heavily involved in nickel and dime packages at the very least. And both will be key to turning around a defense that ranked 32nd in the NFL against the pass last year.
