Scouting Report
Lattimore was a major force defensively for Middle Tennessee last season, but overpowering offensive linemen in the Sun Belt Conference might not be enough to earn a team's draft pick. Playing defensive end for the Blue Raiders, Lattimore had 68 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 11 1/2 sacks, two forced fumbles, two blocked kicks and a fumble recovery as a senior and was named the Sun Belt defensive player of the year. While Lattimore has proven to be an excellent pass rusher, finishing his career with 20 1/2 sacks - second-most in school history - he might be a bit undersized to make it in the pros. His best bet to crack an NFL roster would be as an outside linebacker, but his lack of experience at that position and his limited practice covering receivers make it unlikely that he'll be selected in the draft.
