the only problem with marcus, he was never that fast to begin with in college. he probably between a 4.5 and a 4.6, on his best day. coming off that knee/leg injury, i doubt his speed increased.
either way, he would make an amazing full back, or 3rd down back. the guy made trent richardson look like kevin barlow when it came to getting physical.
I don't think he's talented as Gore was. Gore was seen as the best back in a group that included Edgerrin James, Portis and McGahee.
He's certainly worth the gamble though.
him and frank are a little different.
think more like steven jackson when it comes to lattimore. he's got a strong upper body as well, and won't always put his head down like frank, he will bulldoze his way through backs, and uses the stiff arm very well.
also, i forgot if gore was a good pass catcher coming out of college, because marcus isn't. that's the one area he needs a lot of improvement in. rarely did south carolina set up screen passes for him.
