Originally posted by ginseng1000:Conclusions after watching some of Lattimore's college highlights on youtube:
-an in-between the tackles runner, will find the holes and gaps within the line to exploit
-mid size power runner, won't come down easily after the 1st contact but isn't as powerful as a big power back such as Marshawn Lynch.
-doesn't have break away speed
-good at changing of directions to avoid incoming tacklers/defenders
-decent pass catcher out of the backfield or downfield
overall reminds me of another Frank Gore, which pretty much I think IF and only IF his knees hold up he'll be replacing Gore when Gore retires.
Also considered by many to be the best back in the draft when fully healthy. Gore has one year left, and if we don't resign him which I hope we do, at least we can do is get this man a ring for all the years he's thrown his body for this team.
