Default if this is true

I now want him 2b maybe even 2 a

Marcus Lattimore - RB - Gamecocks

Former South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore is already walking without a limp and hopes to be healthy enough to play by week one of the NFL season.
Lattimore is "feeling good" and thinks his week one goal is "realistic." Dr. James Andrews called the running back's progress "nothing short of a miracle." Lattimore is another junior attending this week's events in Mobile to get an early start interviewing with NFL teams.

Could be a steal. It is risky, but the reward would be huge even if he came back at 85 or 90%.

I don't find this the least bit surprising in his case. If he'll be healthy and ready to start the season, all bets are off on how high he'll go.

I still think it would be a huge risk. I wouldn't risk anything higher than a 3rd personally. The guy is coming off of injury in back to back seasons. Not saying he will never be able to stay healthy but with his own personal track record and the Bengals team track record with RB injuries the risk outweighs the benefit to me.

How does the risk outweigh the benefit? You may spend one of your 2 seconds on him. He has the potential to be an all-pro rb one of the only ones in this class with that potential. Worst case you wasted a 2nd rounder much like we did on Rey,Jerome Simpson, Kenny Irons, Odell Thurman, etc. At least this time we have another 2nd we could hit on if this fails.

Thats what I want to keep from doing. I am done wasting draft picks on busts and injury prone guys. I want this team to continue to build great and solid drafts. If Lattimore is there later in the draft, then yes, pull the trigger, but not a 2B pick.

What round was Frank Gore picked after his major knee injury in the Championship against OSU?

This is where he will be drafted (same round). He was #65 of 3rd round.

Edit; Wong guy, it was McGahee who was hurt. But, he was drafted in round 1 by the Bills and has gone on to have a good, but not great career.

High risk high reward. He's the best back since Adrian Peterson if you ask me. Hell, I don't care where we draft him. Get this kid. Knee reconstructions have improved tenfold the past ten years. Take him.

Willis McGahee was in a similar situation but got hurt later in his last year at Miami. He was still aken round 1, 23rd overall. Lattimore could be a factor at the end of the first round. Unless bad news comes out before then regarding his knee.

I really didn't know what to think about Lattimore's performance this year before the injury.

He seemed to be awfully tentative. I think teams will take a long, hard look at his tape before he got hurt and see that even though he may be able to run off the field, he is still having some issues running on the field. It's going to take a little bit of time before he loses that fear. He looked like he was playing with it this year.

I don't think he'll be drafted until the 3rd round at the earliest.

Also worth mentioning that he was the 1st RB taken. Here's the rest of the RB's in that draft:


round - pick - team - name
1 - 23 - Buffalo Bills - Willis McGahee†
1 - 27 - Kansas City Chiefs - Larry Johnson†
3 - 77 - Baltimore Ravens - Musa Smith
3 - 93 - Tennessee Titans - Chris Brown
3 - 96 - Oakland Raiders - Justin Fargas
4 - 99 - Detroit Lions - Artose Pinner
4 - 101 - Houston Texans - Domanick Davis
4 - 105 - Minnesota Vikings - Onterrio Smith
4 - 108 - Denver Broncos - Quentin Griffin
4 - 115 - Cleveland Browns - Lee Suggs
4 - 132 - Jacksonville Jaguars - LaBrandon Toefield
6 - 206 - Chicago Bears - Brock Forsey
7 - 235 - Denver Broncos - Ahmaad Galloway
7 - 236 - Detroit Lions - Brandon*Drumm
7 - 242 - Pittsburgh Steelers - J. T. Wall
7 - 247 - Carolina Panthers - Casey Moore

After looking at that list I could see why he went first. Not a good year for RBs

I'd definitely take him in the 4th. Just as long as they don't intend on making him the starter his first season. I'm rotting for the guy honestly. Very humble guy and a hard worker. Hope he gets to play in the NFL.

Also, apparently the Bengals have talked to Lattimore:

Q: Have you spoken with any NFL teams?

A: "Yeah I've talked to a few: the Jaguars, Cincinnati, the Chiefs."

Also, I got this link thanks to Burma, so props to him

The tricky thing about a situation is knowing when to take him if you want him. You never know who might put big value on him and take him right before you were about to.

I am a big fan of this kid. He is a very complete back and if not for this injury he is the top back drafted easily.

He is worth our 2b or 3rd round pick.

Because you lose a 2nd round pick if he can't stay healthy. I like him as a player but he didn't look quite as good last year coming off of injury and then he gets injured again. I just don't know that he will ever get back to what he was two years ago or be able to stay healthy. Considering no RB will probably be drafted in the first round I think using a 2nd rounder on him is to much. If we do not take Lacy or Bernard in the 2nd then I would wait until the 3rd round for a running back. I am intrigued by guys like Randle, Ellington, Barner, and even Lattimore around the 3 or 4th round. I am not hating on Lattimore just think a 2nd is a little early for the risk you take on that he can't remain healthy.

Anyone would have gotten hurt on the play that injured him this year. Not like he was just making a cut and it poped on him. Two large dudes taking your leg in separate directions isn't something most knees could withstand, brutal.

Fair enough. But did you think he looked as good last year as he did the previous season? A freak injury but a major nonetheless and coming off of those injuries two years in a row and already looking tentative after the first one combined with the other talent at RB available this season I would not spend a 2nd round pick on him.
