should the 13 draft go like this year and that ranking hold that would be late second or early third round.

Lattimore at #1?


Apr 30, 2012, 1:05 PM

If healthy, I totally agree but coming off ACL injury, I think its way too early to predict he's the top RB.

Agreed. He's a beast, but everyone's so quick to jump

to conclusions. Let's see if he gets shutdown in DV this year. Go Tigers!

one concern with Lattimore should be his speed, as….

fundamentally sound as he is, he doesn't have that many big play runs.

AE will be rated higher than that come next April

I wondered about that too. I guess they were hesitant to put him up that high after missing a full year.

The list is pretty accurate I think

Lattimore when healthy is a beast and the closest to the prototypical NFL back in the next draft. And Knile Davis is missing off it. I think he's either 2 or 3. Guy is a huge talent. AE will rise if he stays healthy

Eddie Lacy, Fitz Toussaint, and John White

should all be on this list. I don't know how strong nfl careers they will have but they will all be beast in the college game next season

Lattimore may lack the speed to be a prototypical nfl back..


Apr 30, 2012, 8:47 PM

he doesn't have that many big run plays. All of his big yardage games have came when has carried the ball 30 to 42 times.

He can pass protect and catch the ball out of the backfield


Apr 30, 2012, 8:51 PM

too, so he's a 3-down back.

I guess it's going to depend on the philosophy of the team.

agreed, but he seems to lack speed…..


Apr 30, 2012, 8:58 PM

he does everything perfect as a running back, except getting big runs. And at the college level as fundamentally sound as he is, he should be getting more big play runs.

Apr 30, 2012, 10:50 PM

Definitely lacks a step at the top end. Lots of plays where it looks like he is gonna bust a big one and the last defender gets a hand on him before he can get to open space. He will still be productive at next level but if he was a step faster he would be mentioned as an adrian peterson kind of cant miss back.

( just a guess)- If hes the 5th best back in....

Roughly, does that mean hes about a 3rd rd draft pick?

If so, that sounds about right to me.

I'm afraid his age(24 at next years draft) will hurt his stock as well.

I just hope Andre has a terrific, injury-free season and

that where ever he's drafted next spring, he makes a ton of money, has great NFL career and sets him and his family up for life.
