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.
I don't think so, Lattimore will most likely have to be placed on injured reserve and miss the whole next season.
