Source Not Sure Lattimore Gets Drafted
(WOLO) -- A few weeks ago, Marcus Lattimore told Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples that it was "realistic" for him to be ready to play in week one of the upcoming NFL season. But someone out there doesn't believe Lattimore will even be drafted come April.
An anonymous source in an article by Pro Football Weekly had this to say about Lattimore in regards to the upcoming draft:
"Marcus Lattimore is tall and a little narrow-hipped. He is tough and the kind of kid you root for, but I thought he was a third-rounder before the injury. Now I don’t know if he gets drafted.”
Those sources range from NFL coaches, scouts, and front office personnel according to the article.
Lattimore suffered his second season-ending knee injury in the Gamecocks game against Tennessee last October. Since then, he has remained positive that he will return to the field in the NFL sometime during the 2013 season.
