Default Marcus Lattimore

Where do you think he goes in the draft?

I would personally like to see the Broncos take a chance on him in the 3rd or 4th if he lasts that long and the team docs think he'll get back into form.

Is that a wasted draft pick? Is it worth the risk?

I have a feeling someone is going to take a flyer on him in the bottom of the 2nd. I want him on our team though. So take him in the 2nd or 3rd.

I'm guessing 3rd round. Elway's not afraid to take a shot at players coming off of injuries, but I don't think he's there for the Broncos 3rd round pick.

We saw what happened when they put faith in an injured player in Ty warren.. Bit them in ass. A smart one would learn their lesson on depending on damaged goods

Well not technically. Ones old the other young. Offense defense. Ones on the team the other isn't. But what I'm saying is the relying on a player with a past serious injury hoping he stays durable. I'd rather them find an RB that doesn't have a serious injury past

You're talking about a top ten pick in the draft had he not hurt his knee. Also if he can prove that he will be ready to start the season after that injury you get a guy that is a freak just like AP in terms of recovery from injuries.

I really like the guy but I wouldn't want us to take a shot at him until the 4th at the soonest. I say this because we really need a boost at the position and can't count on him being available right away. We are playing for right now. No time for a guy to heal. Better going with Bell in the 3rd. As good as this class is with linemen on both sides of the ball it would suck to waste a pick on a guy who may not be ready to go.

I don't think he's better than a 3rd round pick without the injury...He will be over drafted..

It depends who is on the board when our 2nd comes up, but I probably would not take him with our 2nd

Would absolutely take him with our 3rd though

I would even consider trading up around the middle of the 3rd round to get him

If he is there in the 3rd round we BETTER take him. It's not even a question to me. He will recover, and he will be great. That would be a great pick. I'm wondering if we try to trade back in the 2nd and get two 3rd rounders if we would be able to get him and someone else. I would be all for that.
