Lattimore won’t take part in the physical tests at the combine. While he plans to attend South Carolina’s pro day workouts in March, Lattimore’s not certain if he’ll do any drills in front of scouts before the NFL draft begins April 25.
It remains unclear where Lattimore might go in the draft, or if he will even be selected. He was considered a first-round talent before the latest injury, but in December, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper said he just “puts wild card next to his name.”
“He’s way ahead of schedule,” the coach said.
Lattimore said he’s prepared to handle whatever comes his way, if that means going as a late-round pick or settling for a free-agent deal if his name isn’t called in the draft’s seven rounds.
“It doesn’t matter,” he said. “Once I get healthy, I know what I can do on the field.”
