Lattimore met with Chiefs

Quote:
Lattimore, the South Carolina running back who suffered a gruesome right knee injury in an October win over Tennessee, said a check-up with Dr. James Andrews a couple weeks ago gave him hope he’ll be ready for the start of the 2013 season.

“When Dr. Andrews came in and seen me, he said 'You’re doing remarkable, you’re doing everything you can,' ” Lattimore said. “His words was, ‘You’re going to shock the world.’ That’s what Dr. Andrews said.”

Lattimore, who tore the ACL in his left knee in 2011, was widely considered the best running back in college football before enduring an injury so disturbing he was only able to watch it once on replay.

Still, Lattimore said he never considered he might have played his last game.

“I feel like 80 percent of it is mental,” he said. “If you don’t do your rehab, if you keep asking yourself, ‘Why me?’ your knee reacts. You have to stay positive or you’re not going to come back.”

Lattimore, who stopped by Senior Bowl practice today, said he’s already met with the Jaguars, Bengals and Chiefs among other teams – he hasn’t spoken with the Lions yet – but doesn’t have much feel for where he’ll go in the draft.

Doctors use the ACL from non-athlete cadavers (i.e., dead people) so they're always stronger than before.

He didn't blow out one knee.

He's blown out both.

I know that ACLs heal fine, maybe even better than before.

But how do we know the rest of him is injury proof? The answer is probably that he isn't. He's "injury prone".

I think it's all moot anyway. Some team will draft him higher than any of us, including the Chiefs, are willing to.

Exactly, a team that really needs a stud RB will reach for him. If he was there in round 6, I could see him in play. But considering his rehab is going well, he will likely be gone in the 3rd.

If they're both available then I think you almost have to take a chance on BOTH RB Lattimore and CB Tyrann Mathieu in the 7th rd.

Just like Vontaze Burfict last year. These are both 1st rd talents if not for off field issues or injury. You're not going to find that kind of value in the 7th rd often. If they don't pan out...wtf cares, they're 7th rounders...most 7th rd picks don't make it in the league anyways.

Are you married to the Honey Badger or something?
