Take him if he falls late, if he plays well enough then we get a great player for cheap and can find a way to dump dwill and his contract

I wonder who gave him this advice to go the NFL Draft. I guess the coaches/doctors/training staff must have felt that he wouldn't play much next year, if any, and maybe he decided just to go ahead and get that money.

I don't see him going any higher that 4th/5th.

Of course I'm not saying we should draft him. I'm just a South Carolina fan who's interested in Lattimore's career. If he went undrafted, sure let's bring him in.

Just imagine if Hurney was still GM.

1st:Te'o
2nd: Bernard
3rd: (trade next years 2nd) Lattimore


Not even funny anymore

The best RB prospect since AP, sadly injuries took over. Hopefully he'll find some way to comeback healthy. He'll be a late 5th or later.

Before he got hurt, everyone that watched him could tell he had lost a step this season after the first injury. I just cannot see this being a good idea for the kid. I wish him the best though.

McGahee was drafted during a period where RB's in general carried a lot more value as a whole. This is now a passing league AND he's a huge risk.

Lattimore was not as good as McGahee either. Lattimore is good but he has a skinny lower body for his run style. He has had a freakish injury with the Broken Jaw, and two knee injuries.

Being out for the year he will NOT be a top 3 round draft choice unless its a deep RB team.(ugh)

Gms expectations of top 3 round picks are starters or 2nd year starters..no time to gamble on developing potential anymore. Brandon Hogan of RBs?

Lattimore is light years better a prospect than McGahee was if he didn't have the injury troubles. To suggest otherwise is laughable.
