any ideas on which team drafts lattimore?
Wild guess...running back
Patriots, Falcons or Broncos. Just my guess.

no clue at all but St. Louis has quite a few picks and need RB help
Which team?(just asked to see what everyone's opinion is on where he might end up playing)
He told local reporters that the Rams and Steelers are showing the most interest. Rams have four first round picks (RGIII trade) the next two years and are pretty young. They have the picks to take a chance on Latt in the third round or so.

Interesting. I hadn't heard that. Rams make sense. Forgot about the draft picks they received. That was my thinking about the Patriots. They usually seem to load up on middle round picks. Always seem to have a lot of 3rd and 4th round ones.
Selfishly I hope the Falcons take him. Turner is done, and I'm not sure jaquizz Rodgers is the answer.
The biggest risks that have been taken in recent years that I can remember was Tebow in the first round, and Marcus Cannon the OL from TCU that had cancer in the 3rd or so. Both were drafted by current Patriot coaches. They took a risk on a kid with cancer, what's two bad knees especially after the guys you have see come back from the knee injuries? Not to mention they're "well off" enough that he doesn't have to make an impact right away, can take his sweet time coming back.
Pleaseeeee good lord NO to rams!!!
I bet he goes to a team with stable RB now but trending downward. My guess: Bengals, Chargers, Jets, or Titans.
It has to be a team willing to wait until 2014. Most lousy teams won't do that because they need more immediate help. Based on that, Steelers and Pats make some since, or maybe the Packers.....they have had some success with Gamecocks in the past.
I could see the Texans as a possibility as well. They have a great RB now and could allow Marcus the time to heal, as well as the McNair Carolina connection.
I'm hoping falcons. We need a back and dimitroff is a huge "character" guy. Falcons draft position just might be perfect ... Last pick in the second round.

I could see the patriots, 49'ers, rams, or falcons take him. Whichever team does has my respect for giving this great young man his shot.
Who are these " rams"?
Please please please let it be the steelers!
Green bay? They need some help in the backfield
This. Really don't want to be a Rams fan. I'll do cartwheels down the street naked if he ends up in ATL!
I just don't see him taken in the first round because first round guys must/should contribute the first year. Second/ third is where you would love for them to compete and xpext too but not pissed if they do not. Patriots love to trade picks for future contributors and love THE SEC players. He is a perfect Belechik RB. Blocker, pass catcher, runner, team player, Honest/Good person who will not get in trouble. I think the Pats shock everyone and take Latt early just like QB from Ark. As A we can wait on him to get healthy because he is a STUD... Good teams can wait on him to get healthy, bad teams can't and will push him to get back sooner. I want what's best for Latt regardless of team bias. Patriots with the 2-3 back system and being patient would be perfect for him. I hope Pats
It will be a winning organization that can afford to take a chance in late 2nd or 3 rd round...guessing NE,SF,Sea, Atl
rams in the 3rd.
Hadn't thought about it that way. Good point about bad teams pushing to come back too soon.
niners or skins. they've got great run games and have RB's in place to give him 1-2 years to get healthy
