Lattimore's recovery time isn't a concern. Actually, it would be better if he took his time cause we could keep him on PUP without using a roster spot.
The question is, how will he perform after he recovers? Not everybody is like Frank Gore or Adrian Peterson. He may not be the same. That risk is the main reason why his stock is low. Plenty of teams could afford to stash him for a year, and would use a high pick on him if they knew he would be the same player.
AP's ability to recover fast and come back strong was (no doubt) incredible. But Gore just plays through injuries, he lies when they ask if he's alright cause he doesn't want to be out of the game... it seemed like he's played that way since the Niners signed him.
If the Niners happen to get Marcus I won't complain, but I'll just hope he turns out like Gore or better (if possible).
