    Re: South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore has visit scheduled w/ Rams

    If the front office checks out his health and the outlook is VERY good, I'd be down with them taking a chance on him in the 2nd. I know thats an early pick, but if I'm gambling on any high risk/high reward player in this draft, its Marcus Lattimore.

    I have so much more confidence in a pick like this now, than in the past for two reasons.

    1. Fisher is a mastermind at keeping his guys fresh and healthy. He just gets it.

    2. I think Fisher and the team could move on from this pick just fine if it doesnt workout. But, I obviously think he can succeed.

    I reeeeally want Marcus Lattimore to be a Ram, but I think spending a 2nd on him would be too risky... I'd be willing to pick him up in the 3rd round tho

    Really hoping we get Lattimore at some point in the draft.

    Sounds like Lattimore is getting the most interest from the Rams and Patriots. If the Rams want him, it's going to have to be in the 2nd. Pretty sure the Patriots would have no problem taking Lattimore with their 2nd.

    BAMN! I'm down with it. Been mocking Lattimore a few times to us. Guy is great when healthy, though sometimes I wonder if he'd be best in a ZBS rather than ours.. But great players make great plays.

    He has a great story I enjoyed watching... however he is a ways down on my RB list this year. I hope the guy makes a nice career of it in the NFL but would prefer a couple other backs than him. I hate being negative Nancy on this, just my take.

    Re: South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore has visit scheduled w/ Rams

    As I've noted previously, I'd pass on Lattimore, particularly if his price is a Day 2 selection.

    And... as an FYI... before anyone reads too much into this visit, he's not the only RB the Rams are looking at:

    Fox Sports' Scott Carter reports Florida RB Mike Gillislee has a workout set for the Atlanta Falcons and St. Louis Rams.

    Gillislee will be meeting with the Falcons on March 14 and with the Rams on April 2. Both teams are a fit for the running back's style, which is strictly downhill. Gillislee shows a good burst and aggressiveness in pass protection, which could appeal to both teams as they look to keep their franchise quarterbacks upright.

    Per my mock draft. 3rd or after I would be fine with him. However would really like to address either our S, WR, OLB/OL needs in the first two rounds or BPA. With those three picks in first 2 rounds. Pass on Lattimore if it costs us the 2nd round pick.
