Combine Stats


Overview
Injuries sidelined Lattimore for most of his college career. Only played in 3 games in 2015 after having surgery on one hamstring and resting the other. Finally put together a full season in 2016 recording 4 interceptions and returning 1 for a score, with 9 pass break ups.

NFL Comparison
Desmond Trufant

Best Position Fit
Outside corner in a man-to-man scheme

Strengths
Very fluid and athletic. Mirrors receivers very well, and can stay locked on the receiver for a long time. Flashes decent ball hawk skills combined with good hands. Can play textbook man-to-man coverage at times. Does an outstanding job looking back for the ball to avoid downfield contact penalties. Covers the entire tree better than anyone in this entire draft class.

Weaknesses
Almost nonexistent in run support. Doesn’t get off blocks. It is way too easy for receivers to take him out of the play. He will need to learn proper use of hands at the next level because he is grabby. Has a history with injured hamstrings. Only a one-year starter.

Summary
NFL offenses will run the ball at him with success. He gives up some big plays over the top. He looks like Vontae Davis running with the receiver down the field, but he doesn’t tackle like Vontae. Lattimore could become an excellent man corner, but he might not fit well in a zone scheme.

Bottom Line
A lot of people believe Lattimore is coming off the board early, and he could. The hamstrings are still a concern. He tweaked one running the 40 at the combine. He could come off the board as early as 5, but he is also a candidate to slide a little bit.
