When Gore leaves the Niners, I leave the Niners. Just kidding, but truthfully I am thinking we might even draft another back for the simple reason that LMJ has been somewhat underwhelming to say the least. He has had troubles with ball security/ pass blocking among other things, I don't see LMJ as a necessity for this team. Even if he improves, I wouldn't be against trading him for some kind of conditional draft pick. Don't forget, since the Harbaugh regime, we have drafted at least one running back a draft since. Right now Hunter is the apprentice, he has taken to pass blocking quite well and he has a style very similar to the Inconvenient Truth. I would welcome a healthy Lattimore to come in and turn heads and be good enough to compete for the starting HB spot but we will just have to wait on that one. The fact that he is taking the season off barring some kind of terrible injury plague to our backfield coupled with an amazingly fast recovery, maybe we'll find out sooner than later, but the way I see it, Its Gore then Hunter, anything else after that is TBD.
