Kamrin Moore has long had one foot in the New Orleans Saints' defensive back room.
The Boston College cornerback has been watching Marshon Lattimore's film for years, and he's developed a friendship over social media with fellow Washington, D.C.-area product Ken Crawley.
Now, Moore will get a chance to learn from both of the Saints' starters in person. New Orleans picked up the 5-foot-11, 203-pound cornerback in the sixth round, the second consecutive pick the Saints have used on a defensive back.
"About time, honestly," Moore said. "I'm just eager to play football, at this point."
Moore, who was hearing anywhere from the third round to the seventh round, played all four years as a cornerback at Boston College, although his sophomore season was cut short by a broken tibia and his senior season ended due to shoulder surgery.
Healthy now, Moore profiles a lot like the Saints' fifth-round pick, Wisconsin's Natrell Jamerson: a versatile defensive back who has a long history of playing special teams in college, particularly as a gunner.
His ties to the Saints' starting cornerbacks go back a few years. He's been watching Lattimore's film since the Rookie of the Year's time at Ohio State.
"Marshon's a guy I watch a lot, because I like the way he plays the game," Moore said. "(Ken and I) have talked to each other a couple of times about the process, draft-day stuff, all of that."
Now, Moore gets to work with those two on a daily basis.
