Where Will Marcus Lattimore Get Drafted?
The South Carolina back suffered a serious knee injury during the game that not only left his season in doubt, but his career. Six months post surgery to repair the dislocated knee cap and torn ligaments, Lattimore is waiting to see what team will take a chance on him this weekend.
According to an article on ESPN, Lattimore feels like he will be ready to play at the beginning of the season. The thought of that alone is amazing, especially if you saw the injury that Lattimore suffered.
For Lattimore to be this confident, it will be hard for teams to ignore the talented back in this draft. Those around Lattimore have praised his work ethic, and his talent and knowledge of the game is already there. Lattimore could be a treasure for a team willing to take a chance on the South Carolina star. Prior to the injury, Lattimore was the consensus No. 1 running back in this draft class. I would be amazed if Lattimore makes it through the third round.
