However, Lattimore is making an unbelievable recovery and expects he could be back much sooner than any of us had believed to be possible. The 21-year-old running back is currently rehabbing at Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Florida. Lattimore is preparing for the 2013 NFL Draft and will have many questions thrown his way regarding the recovery time from his surgery. What Lattimore has his sights set on for his return could blow the minds of NFL personnel. However, Lattimore is prepared to start the 2013-14 NFL season.
As a ACL replacement person with the repair done by the cowboys dr, it is not how it feels in the knee, it is when you can trust it in your head and not think twice about cutting or using that knee. I think that takes about 18 months although what Peterson did this year is incredible to those of us that waited one year to do anything on the repair. Must be some type of Vulcan mind meld not available in the 90's.
I would not touch him in the draft especially after this being his second injury to this knee. We already have Demarco to worry about and this guy's upside is not much better than his.
