I thought about that for a while too. Then, Gillislee and Barner both had great Senior Bowl appearances and other scouts are starting to warm up to Knile Davis out of Arkansas. I think that most teams will watch that tape of Lattimore's injury and breeze right over him until the fifth round which can only mean we've found our franchise guy in the fourth.
If Colbert and Tomlin are feeling a little antsy about that though, I wouldn't be at all upset or surprised if they took him in the third round. This is a deep secondary class and someone like Lester or Thomas will be on the board in the fourth round waiting to be scooped. Either way, Lattimore in the Black and Gold is a good thing.
