Scouting Report on Marcus Lattimore

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/13/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • ElusivenessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Big, muscular back with very powerful legs and wide shoulders. His frame will easily hold 225 pounds, yet he will be able keep his quickness and speed.
Needs Improvement: Lattimore needs to improve his ball security at the point right after quarterback exchange. He also needs to work on getting up to full speed quicker, which should help him break more tackles.
Most Impressive: Once he breaks into the secondary, most defensive backs either cower down or they just don't seem to be able to catch him. This past season, he also showed tremendous durability carrying the ball over 60 times in the semi-finals and finals.
Conclusion: Should have a similar impact to Knowshon Moreno and Carnell Williams in two years. Will be able to wear defenses down, and help run time off the clock in the fourth quarter.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
