Marcus Lattimore Declares For NFL Draft 2013

Marcus Lattimore Declares For NFL Draft 2013

Photo – RB Marcus Lattimore – South Carolina

University of South Carolina junior running back Marcus Lattimore has elected to forego his final year of college eligibility and enter the 2013 NFL Draft, he announced today at a press conference at Williams-Brice Stadium.

DraftInsiders.com Marcus Lattimore's Scouting Report in Pro Prospect Preview

Ranked #1 Back thru November 2012
* Marcus Lattimore - South Carolina - 6’ 225

Powerful running back is one of the premier runners in the nation despite coming off a 2011 knee injury. He is off to a big 2012 season. He is set to be the workhorse runner in this balanced offense where he should get 20+ touches weekly. He has flashed a great burst of speed through the hole to break the big play while also showing powerful tackle breaking abilities that has allowed him to be an inside force. He has fine overall athleticism and shows good natural running skills both inside and outside. He has a powerful compact frame with good body lean and top quickness to punish a defense. He needs development as both a blocker and receiver to be ready for NFL starting duty. Unfortunately, he was injured in November that terminated his season. He opted to enter the NFL Draft 2013 in early December 2012.

A highly-regarded talent, Lattimore burst onto the scene quickly at the collegiate level. In just his second game for the Garnet & Black, the six-foot, 218-pounder rushed 37 times for 182 yards leading Carolina to a win over Georgia. It was the first of four 100-yard rushing games on the season and the first of three in his career against the Bulldogs. He later set the school single-game record with 40 carries for 212 yards at Florida, as the Gamecocks clinched their first SEC Eastern Division title. He finished his first campaign with 1,197 yards and 17 TDs, both freshman records at South Carolina. For his efforts, Lattimore was a unanimous choice for National Freshman of the Year. He was also the SEC Freshman of the Year and earned a spot on the first-team All-SEC unit.

The Duncan, S.C. product was headed toward a Heisman Trophy-type season in 2011. He logged three consecutive 100-yard rushing games to open the season, including a career-best 246-yard, three-touchdown effort in a win over Navy. His season ended prematurely when he suffered a left knee injury in the win at Mississippi State in game seven. He finished the season with 818 yards on 163 carries, an average of 5.0 yards per carry. Despite playing in just seven games, he still earned second-team All-SEC accolades and was a member of the SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll.

Lattimore worked extremely hard in the off-season rehabilitating his knee and was ready to take the field when the 2012 season got underway. He quickly erased any doubts about his comeback with a 23-carry, 110-yard, two-touchdown effort in the season opening win at Vanderbilt, which earned him SEC Offensive Player of the Week accolades for the fourth time in his career. He logged three 100-yard rushing games in 2012, including back-to-back efforts at Kentucky and versus Georgia. He was on his way to another 100-yard game against Tennessee when he suffered a season-ending right knee injury. He was named honorable mention All-SEC by the Associated Press.

Lattimore leaves as one of the Gamecock all-time greats. He finished his career with 2,677 rushing yards, sixth on Carolina's all-time list. He is the school record-holder in both rushing touchdowns (38) and touchdowns scored (41). He ranks fourth in rushing attempts (555), third in points scored (246 - most among non-kickers) and tied for second in 100-yard rushing games (11).

He is currently third amongst active Football Bowl Subdivision players in career tackles for loss and tied for 15th in career sacks. At Purdue he is eighth all-time in school history in TFLs and ninth in sacks. Through 10 games this season, Short leads the Big Ten in TFLs (13.0) and is tied for fourth in sacks (5.0).
Short has additionally blocked eight kicks at Purdue, with his six field goal blocks marking the most by an individual in school history.

NFL 2012 Draft - Cincinnati Bengal's Draft Class Tops AFC

NFL 2012 Draft - Bengals Draft Class Tops AFC

Photo – WR Mohamed Sanu - Rutgers

Cincinnati Bengals - Grade A
The Bengals addressed major need areas especially in the early rounds. They selected players with high grades at key need areas. From top to bottom, they landed the best overall draft class with as many as eight selections carrying eventual NFL starting grades. This class will supplement last year’s rookie class that supplied starting QB Andy Dalton and wideout AJ Green who were instrumental in the Bengals return to the playoffs.

On the 1st round, they chose CB Dre Kirkpatrick of Alabama, a very well developed defender who they hope becomes an immediate starter. He has been a big time defender in national title games and has the athleticism to start day one. With their second #1 pick, they traded back and chose OG Kevin Zeitler. He is a highly developed guard who can compete for an immediate starting spot. He is well rounded with strong drive blocking skills and has proven to be an anchor in pass protection on the inside. On the 2nd round, they were selected DT Devin Still, a tough interior defender who addresses a major need area. He displays nice athleticism and overall development to challenge for early starting time. He should be a fixture on the inside and see immediate time as a pass rusher. On the 3rd round, they chose WR Mohamed Sanu and DT Brandon Thompson. Sanu is a big receiver with fine hands and good run after the catch ability. He will help in three wideout sets early and has starting potential. Thompson is fine value here and is an explosive interior tackle who slipped in the process on some inconsistencies. He has starting potential and could form a fine inside tandem with Still. On the 4th round, they added TE Orson Charles, a mobile versatile athlete who projects to both the tight end and H back roles. He was excellent value here with the development to possibly start as an H back with a big camp.

On the 5th round, they added CB Shaun Prater, WR Marvin Jones and safety George Iloka. Prater is a savvy zone corner with strong tackling skills to help immediately and compete for starting time. Jones is an athletic receiver who will help their three and four wideout sets. Iloka is a big mobile defender who runs well to the ball and finishes with strong tackling. He can become a staple on coverage units to play in the nickel and dime packages. He has the talent to excel there and eventually start. In the 6th round, they added RB Dan Herron, a tough inside runner with sure hands as an outlet receiver. He is a productive back at a high level with some natural running skills to make this squad. He could surprise here with a big preseason.
