Lattimore hears applause at Pro Day workout

Marcus Lattimore AP

Former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore showed up for his Pro Day workout, less than six months after suffering a severe and gruesome knee injury.

According to the Associated Press, Lattimore heard loud applause from former teammates, coaches, and scouts from the 31 NFL teams who attended the workout.

But Lattimore worked for roughly 15-20 minutes, catching passes in a limited window of movement.  He also performed some of his rehab drills for the scouts.

Lattimore was regarded as a sure-fire first-round selection before injuring his knee.  He may not be able to play in 2013.

    Great Kid.. Hope He Can Have,A Good Career…

    I hope this kid makes a team. I’d rather have him spend an entire year on IR as a Steeler than Ahmad Bradshaw or Beenie Wells spend half a season on it.

    i wonder what logicalvoices will say about this…

    probably something like… “top 5 running backs in the NFL alfred morris, clintion portis, roy helu, john riggins, bob griffin… in that order!”

    It always sucks when you hear about a terrible injury like that let alone to a college player. I hope he can recover and make a name for himself in the NFL I love the way he plays the game- reminds me a lot of Terrell Davis.

    if he can go through some rehab drills already he’ll be able to play this year

  8. goldenperspective says: Mar 27, 2013 3:56 PM

    He will be an animal. Look for a team with an extra mid round pick to grab him.

    How can you not root for a kid like this?

    When they show the replay I cover my eyes.

  11. EJ says: Mar 27, 2013 4:13 PM

    He will attract as much attention as Willis McGahee did coming out of college. McGahee was injured but taken in the first round. There will be one team that thinks a lot of him, regardless of his injury. In the end Lattimore could end up becoming a big weapon.

  12. chipwade says: Mar 27, 2013 4:14 PM

    Some team is going to land a bargain in the later rounds. This is like the Willis McGahee situation. He is a fantastic player.

  13. fumblenuts says: Mar 27, 2013 4:16 PM

    Some smart team will stash him for a year and then unleash him in the 2014 season.

  14. rippedoffhead says: Mar 27, 2013 4:21 PM

    49ers will snag him and IR him for 2013. Then use their other 3245 picks on trades and needs. But in all seriousness, with all the picks they have they can afford a higher mid-rnd pick on him without it affecting their draft.

  15. goldrush36 says: Mar 27, 2013 4:22 PM

    49ers and a few others could easily afford to take a flyer and stash this kid for a year. Gore is likely on his last year as starter and there are a couple older backs you can make the same case for. This kid has heart and determination. Bet he still ends up a beast in the nfl

    If he can join the Redskins, its money in the bank that he makes it in the NFL as a superstar. Everyone wants to join the Redskins, especially players recovering from injuries. They all know the Redskins have by far the best medical staff in football. That’s one of the many reasons the Redskins are a perennial Super Bowl team and the best franchise in NFL history. HTTR.

    Alfred Morris’s Backup!

  18. godofwine330 says: Mar 27, 2013 4:26 PM

    Good for him, man. For real. I wish him a long career. For that to happen when you are projected to be top of the class at your position is horrible. I’ll be rooting for him anywhere he goes…even if it is to Quittsburgh (please, don’t make him go to Quittsburgh)

  19. anpsteel says: Mar 27, 2013 4:28 PM

    I think they should have done one of those modern interpretation helmets- with just the head of the dolphin- with it’s mouth open- and fangs… yeah, fangs.

    lol

  20. zenrooster says: Mar 27, 2013 4:30 PM

    Sounds like someone Pete Carroll/John Schneider will use a draft pick on

  21. mrizvi66 says: Mar 27, 2013 4:35 PM

    with their 2nd 3rd pick the San Francisco 49ers select Marcus Lattimore, RB South Carolina.

  22. ccjcsr says: Mar 27, 2013 4:43 PM

    Time to think of coaching in the college ranks, that knee/knees won’t hold up in the NFL.

  23. 23chameleons says: Mar 27, 2013 4:49 PM

    Don’t think he’ll last until late 3rd round. Fits would seem to include: SF, GB, Indy, Cincy, Miami, Denver, Jax, AZ or NE in the late 2nd or early 3rd round.

  24. skinswillsurprise says: Mar 27, 2013 4:54 PM

    If this was RG3, the posts would look a lot different. Good luck to the both of them. HTTR!

  25. realfootballfan says: Mar 27, 2013 6:05 PM

    For the “Stay in school” crowd, that did him real well.

  26. cranespy says: Mar 27, 2013 11:34 PM

    And ESPN was covering Matt Barkley……..
