Marshon Lattimore has suffered through some injuries during his tenure at Ohio State, but when he is healthy, he can lock down one side of the field with his God given talent.
Measuring 6’0″ 193 lbs., Lattimore carved out a name for himself, as he performed well at this year’s NFL Combine. By posting a blazing 4.36 40 time, he all but cemented his name in the conversation for the title of the first defensive back selected in the draft.
He posted strong numbers on both the vertical jump and on the broad jump, with an astounding 38.5″ and 132″ respectively.
Lattimore is projected to be taken as high as 3rd overall, but generally no lower than 6th. His health concerns and his lack of starting experience could be red flags, but the talent and the athleticism seems to have satisfied most observers. Let’s see how soon a team agrees.
