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.
Yes, I agree that this is a relative issue. Just that RB is such a bang-up position that previous injury to the knee is at least worth noting. Bernard is the safest of these three though. I personally like Gillislee in the 4th.
