These guys are all a risk. Lattimore will be lucky if he's drafted in the sixth or seventh round... he's a total risk.
Difference is, Bernard tore up his knee in 2010 and has rushed for 2500 yards and had 900 receiving yards since then.
But I agree, Lattimore's injury is a total wild card, kind of like Willis McGahee--who was going to be drafted in the top 3-5 picks that year--then dropped on many boards to round 3 or 4--or off of some boards--only to be taken by the Bills late first round. He sat out his entire rookie season--I can't take that gamble on him being a stud RB because he just as easily could never get it all the way back.
