first, lattimore already came back from one nasty acl, and was back in form in record time. second, he has already amazed many with his "ahead of schedule " progress from this one. next, not only did latti not play four years, as you stated, but in fact he only played one full year, and only half of two other seasons. so he really only has two full years worth of hits on his body. he has superb vision, and is one of the toughest rb's i've ever seen. he is patient to let the holes open for him, and is one of the hardest rb's to bring down when he finds it. just ask uga! some people want to say he's injury prone, but that just isn't true. both times he got hurt were freak accidents. it wasn't his body breaking down. this is one of the classiest people in sports, let alone football. so anytime you award a grade that is less than an a+ to latti, expect many of us to come after you. this kid was the best rb in the draft, and the 49ers got a steal with him. even if he can't play immediately, which there is no need for that anyway, he will become one of the best players and people on this team.
