South Carolina running back believes NFL teams will be stunned at the progress made in his recovery of gruesome injury.
WARNING: Not for the faint-hearted or those who do not like looking at knee’s bending the wrong way.
There are many talented players in this year’s draft. One prospect however is unlikely to see the field at all in his rookie year.
The injury above effectively ended all hopes of running back Marcus Lattimore being selected in the top two rounds, but he has shown enough potential for teams to take an interest from the third round on-wards.
While he obviously will not take part in any activities at the upcoming combine, the 15 minute interviews with teams will be the deciding factor if a team will pull the trigger and take him in the later rounds.
After the sensational season Adrian Peterson had after suffering a similar injury last year, there is no reason to doubt that Lattimore can still have a productive career in the NFL.
Whoever selects him must understand that patience is key with him, and if he can recover to full fitness, the gamble will no doubt pay off.
