EAST All-Star

Lattimore is an inside linebacker that has flown under the radar. He’s been Southern Florida’s leading tackler the past three seasons, posting an impressive 98 tackles as a senior. Lattimore also recorded 15 sacks in his four years at USF and has underrated pass rush ability.

Lattimore plays tough, has good sideline-to-sideline speed, and can shed blockers to make plays against the run. Unfortunately, he played on a struggling club that finished the season 2-10, making it tough for Lattimore to get national recognition.

Look for Lattimore to showcase his all-around ability as a linebacker this weekend. He could be a great find for a team like the Packers in the fourth or fifth round and provide an immediate impact on defense and special teams.
