New Vid Reveals Lattimore Draft Reaction

May 7th, 2013| by

For those of you with a vested interest in Marcus Lattimore’s journey back from his horrific knee injury to being a fourth-round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers, the above video is for you.

The Niners recently released a video documenting the former South Carolina running back’s draft weekend experience, which included Lattimore meeting with his agent in Atlanta — who told him, in essence, to hope for the best and prepare for the worst — as well as watching the second and third rounds of the draft while going unselected.

The cathartic payoff came on April 27th — the draft’s final day — when Lattimore, his family and friends had lunch at a Benihana in Atlanta. Their collective reaction when Lattimore got the call from the 49ers (particularly his mom’s) is awesome to watch.

Even if you’re a fan of one of San Fran’s NFC West rivals, it’ll be very hard to root against this guy.
