Player Scouting Report
Players Scouting Reviewer :
Position :Cornerback [CB]
Good playing speed.
Not his strength but more than capable.
Does a good job recognizing the action and adjusting quickly.
Willing and effective tackler.
Ability to stay with receivers, good speed, and solid fundamentals.
Needs to work on this area. Tends to follow the first player he encounters.
Serious concerns about Lattimore's durability.
Athletic and fast cornerback with good size. Lattimore has the quickness and speed to stay with receivers across the field; Capable of jamming receivers at the line and getting off of blocks. Quick first step.
Doesn't time his jumps consistently; Comes out of his backpedal too early; Plays too high and can be turned. Has a very suspect hamstring. Inconsistent in coverage, at least more so than is being reported.
Lattimore was one of the best cornerbacks in college in 2016. He was rarely challenged despite playing opposite Conley and Hooker. Lattimore is still more potential than production. His upside is sky high, however, and he is worth the top ten selection that a cornerback needy team is likely to spend on him. His hamstring is worrisome though.
