No elite size, no elite speed, possibly elite vision but no elite toughness like Frank. Wouldn't we be better served by picking up a WR or 2nd safety in the 4th instead of another RB, who wouldn't even play this year?
I'm not saying he won't be a good pro, I have no idea. I just don't think it's worth burning a 4th when we have other holes
Just by those comments I fully question your ability to judge to a running back. Lattimore was the premier runningback in the country and a surefire 1st rounder without the injuries. If you can get a premier talent like that with a later round pick, let him sit for a year and recover, I think that's an outstanding way to acquire a future franchise back.
