NFL Draft Countdown | No.12 Marcus Lattimore
Overall: #12 2014: #6 Ht: 6000 Wt: 230 40Yd: 4.55 Rd: 1st
Pros: A big, bruising back, Lattimore can move the chains with his hard-nosed running style—he’s not easy to bring down and combines power and agility. He shows good vision, keeping it between the tackles and pounding the rock while displaying the patience to allow his holes to develop.
Cons: The knock on Lattimore is he doesn’t possess the ability to bust loose for big runs – doesn’t own top-flight speed. He is still working on improving his blocking skills.
Medical Report: After a fabulous freshman season in which he combined for over 1,600 total yards and 19 touchdowns, Lattimore was poised for even a more sensational sophomore campaign before a torn ACL ended his season
