2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jul-05-2014 by Brad Kruse

If it weren't for multiple significant injuries, Lattimore would have been the best running back of last year's draft class. Unfortunately, he suffered two devastating severe knee injuries and wasn't ready to contribute last year. 2013 was a redshirt year for Lattimore. The early word this offseason indicated that he still wasn't 100-percent. He will get his opportunities to try to make his comeback this year; however, nothing is guaranteed for the former South Carolina back after San Francisco committed another draft pick on Carlos Hyde. If Lattimore is to win a role which involves playing time, it will be when the hitting goes live and that is when he needs to prove to himself. Playing alongside Frank Gore (another back who sustained multiple injuries before his pro career really began) will hopefully prove beneficial to his work ethic and commitment to return at his best. Lattimore is a very late-round gamble until the depth chart solidifies.

Editor's note: Hyde's arrival is a big blow to the perceived confidence the 49ers must have in Lattimore. Perhaps Hyde is insurance if the Niners opt to replace Kendall Hunter or allow LaMichael James to depart after this season as well. With so many backs in the mix, it is difficult to discern what the team has in store for the future.
