It makes sense for him. Without injuries, Marcus Lattimore would have unquestionably been the greatest Gamecock ever. For many, he still is. I'm going to really miss this guy, but I always thought he should go pro after three years anyways. This guy was absolutely critical for capturing our first SEC East title, and was the unquestionable heart of the team, and will never be forgotten. A great football player, and possibly even a better person.

As for how we'll fare without him, I'm not particularly concerned. Once he got injured the first time, our offense forever changed, without necessarily losing any efficiency. We stopped relying on just continually running Lattimore, and instead saw Shaw grow as both a passer and runner in his own right. Brandon Wilds took over for him in 2011 and was very successful, there was no drop off in the running game. He's back after redshirting this year, and has the inside track to the starting job. But I expect very stiff competition from Mike Davis in particular. Highly rated coming, he's a strong runner who is extremely fast. He looked good on the few carries we saw early in the season, and after Lattimore went down we got even more flashes of his potential, particularly in the Clemson game. I wouldn't be surprised to see him eventually named starter, and many Gamecock fans want exactly that.

Sterling Sharpe was an unquestionably great player. But he wasn't even the best player in his own decade for us.

I really want him to be successful. Preferably for a team not in the 49ers division... unless it is for the Niners.

The impact the season Adrian Peterson is having this year is only going to help his chance to get drafted.

These knee injuries aren't the death to a RB they were 10.... heck even 5 years ago.

As for Lattimore He is a very productive college running back and I wish him all the best and hope he can stay healthy, with that said as a NFL prospect he reminds me so much of Ron Dayne he scares me and I wouldn't draft him with that many carries on his body, with his physical running style and his injury history.

The injuries prevented Lattimore from accumulating that many carries. He has less than half as many as Dayne did, not really comparable in that regard.

No Lattimore's Style of running reminds me of Ron Dayne. I understand He is not as big as Dayne and is a slightly more explosive back (or at least he was will see about the future). His Carries that I'm worried about is how his body is already breaking down with only about 550 Carries and coming off of two knee injuries, although not on the same knee. The life span of a RB in the NFL is only about 4 years, and his injury history to his knees is not something that is very encouraging.

I'd like to see this guy in a 49ers uniform bulldozing everyone over. I think he's worth the risk.
