Philly HS RB David Williams was told by #SouthCarolina that RB Marcus Lattimore will turn pro. Lattimore thinks he’ll be ready for combine.— NFL Draft Bible (@NFLDraftBible) November 29, 2012The news this afternoon has been that Marcus Lattimore will be entering the 2013 NFL Draft after his horrific knee injury.  This is a big change from what South Carolina Head Coach Steve Spurrier said on October 29th, when he said Lattimore told him he would return.South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says RB Marcus Lattimore told him he will be back on the field for the Gamecocks. es.pn/SWBw5v— ESPN CollegeFootball (@ESPNCFB) October 30, 2012Personally I think it will all depend on how his rehab goes.  If he is well-enough to work out at the Combine or to have a separate Pro Day before the draft, and can perform at a high-level there is no reason for him not to leave early.  If he were to have another devastating knee injury next year, it would be safe to say that with three knee injuries in three years that he would be undraftable.If he gets healthy enough to show teams he can still play, I guarantee that he is gone by the end of the second round.  The amount of talent that Lattimore has showed while he is healthy is well worth the risk.  He always reminded me of Adrian Peterson, and runningbacks like Peterson don’t come around very often.Whatever he chooses, I wish him the very best.  Although, I’m sure many South Carolina fans will feel a bit betrayed if he goes back on his word and leaves early.H/T: Rant Sports
