Default Re: Guys, I think I found our RB

I'm warming up more to the idea of just drafting Lattimore late if we could find a way to sign Chris Ivory or Steven Jackson. Other than that none of the FA RBs really interest me though, except maybe Joique Bell, but one decent season as a third string won't convince me of much. But I'd love to not have to spend an early pick on an Eddie Lacy and instead be able to focus on safeties, linebackers, and a tall, physical wideout with the first three picks.

If Lattimore can work hard in his rehab and get back to even just 80-90% of what he was pre-injury he could be a franchise RB. Obviously if he was never injured he probably would have been a top-16 pick. I'm just worried a lot of other teams have the same mindset of "draft Lattimore late" and somebody will wind up drafting him in the second or third anyway.
