    Re: Players Forgoing Senior Year to Go Pro

    I am concerned about Lattimore's health. I think he is an outstanding individual and excellent player and wish him all the success in the world. I just hope he is not moving too fast with this decision.

    You know owners are going to be gun shy regarding his injuries....especially after just coming off a bad one. I would think his best chance would be to stay and prove himself...if he can

    With you. Good kid. Do not see how anyone would take him with such a catastropic injury. Just do not see this happening.

    My only point of reference for Lattimore is Willis McGahee. He had a catastrophic injury in the title game and was drafted in the first round (late) by Buffalo.

    Granted, Lattimore has had 2 serious injuries, but I think someone will take a chance on him in the late rounds. When healthy, he's a great back. And he'd be cheap if drafted later.

    From his viewpoint, he needs to leave now and not risk another major injury the next time he plays college ball. If he leaves now, he's at least got a chance to make some $$.

    I can't see how waiting at least a year isnt a better idea. Right now he'd just be drafted on speculation and i dont see anyone taking that gamble until the last round or free agency.

    Lattimore WILL get drafted...probably not high, but he has too much talent for some team hoping to hit the jackpot in the later rounds to pass up. His rehab and recovery will not be kept a secret...granted, not like game time, but IMO he returns and gets hurt again it's gonna be REAL difficult for him to make it. JMO

    Bingo - and he'll get paid to rehab instead of doing it for free.

    By Lattimore being hurt, it seems that would encourage him to go pro. Let's face it. If he comes back for another year of college, he runs the risk of getting hurt again, lowering his draft stock (see Matt Barkley), or just running off more tread on those tires. RB's don't have a long shelf life in the NFL anyway. Get in there while you still have some tread. Makes no sense to come back and make things worse. Lattimore has showcased his talent already. What else does he have to prove? Coaches and owners have seen players replace knees before. They know how it affects players ability.

    I think that is the idea. It is still speculation, but if he is really that messed up, he still may be picked in the 3rd of 4th round on a flyer and may never be drafted otherwise.

    i can't see it, It's no guarantee that he will recover well enough to play anytime soon at that level. I hope he does well, I just think anything other than a 6th or 7th round shot, since those are more often than not spots where you take guys who may make up your practice squad if nothing else. But what do I know, best of luck to him.

    You are right that there is no guarantee that he will recover well enough to play anytime soon at that level. There is no guarantee he will ever play at his former level if he stays at USC. But if he did get to that level of play at USC, Steve Spurrior is gonna get him killed running him 30 plus times a game!
