New Orleans Saints cornerback Paulson Adebo continues to receive praise for his career year. Pro Football Focus labeled Adebo the Saints’ most improved player It’s hard to argue with the tag. In his third year, the cornerback improved in all major categories. Most impressively, he set career highs in interceptions and pass deflections. He did it while having to step into a bigger role.
Adebo bounced back from a sophomore slump in 2022 that put him into a battle for his starting job. The third year player won the battle and never looked back. He took on the challenge of being the Saints lead cornerback and passed with flying colors. Adebo is a physical corner, so penalties will naturally come with his play style. He did a much better job playing with an edge as opposed to being overaggressive. Hiring aa new position coach last offseason, Marcus Robertson, proved good for him.
