    I doubt we take a RB this draft and if so it will probably be in the last 2 rounds. He will be gone by then. Im perfectly content with the backs we have and there are much bigger needs to be addressed.

    oh I agree.. But the possibility of this kid being dynamic is their... If hero's still there late in draft giants may just pull the trigger and bring him along really slow
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Lattimore is a Tyrone Wheatley waiting to happen.

    This guy would be a ridiculous fit with this team and could end up being one of, if not thee best RB in the draft.. Thats how big a deal this guy was before his injury, and we've seen guys like Clinton Portis come back from major knee injuries just fine.. So ya, hes worth the risk, as hes young and i don't think any injury that can heal will hold this young kid down for long.. What scares me is this kid on a team we gotta face twice a yr...

    giants wont touch a RB in the 1st 4 rounds, do you think he lasts even that long?

    Not past the 4th , the fact that people are talking about him in the 3rd -4th round range is amazing considering how bad his injury was last year, his knee bent inward and then twisted , you can find the video on youtube but wouldn't watch it if you are squeamish

    It apparently wasn't as bad of an injury as everyone thought. It looked worse than it was. With that being said as the thread starter I still want to draft lattimore. I'd even pick him in the third round I I had to but preferably 4th or later

    Nah, i don't.. But i will say if this guys on the board 19th pick of RD3, ur talking about possibly getting a powerful workhorse type RB, who also catches the ball, and even though power is his main asset, he does have some shiftiness vision and balance to his game as well..

    If this guy didn't get hurt, hes going in the top 5 -10picks of RD1, as he is very similar to Trent Richardson... People are forgetting just how big a deal Lattimore was before the injury.. He'll recover and be fine, and a total steal for someone...

    He would give us as dynamic a RB DUO as u can possibly have going forward... Imagine a Wilson/Lattimore/Brown RB trio? Jesus!
