    If RB Marcus Lattimore is still on the board when the Texans compensatory pick comes up at the end of the 3rd round would you guys take that pick? I am thinking that at that point Lattimore would be a low risk high reward player. Lattimore could miss the season or be a late starter to season but would upgrade the talent of the team in 2014 when Tate would be a FA.

    Sounds a bit high for a player who wont contribute next year. I'd be comfortable with a late 4 and beyond.

    I'd take him...assuming our crack pot medical staff approves.
    The guy can flat out play. Everything that's been reported is that he will return to his former self.

    As much as I like Tate, his days in Houston are numbered.

    I will be very temped to say at least. He may not contribute next year but what he may bring on his second year that intrigues me. I'd mention on other thread that I wouldn't mind taking Lattimore in the mid rd so I guess to roll a dice and see what happens. In the 4th definitely. Perhaps, trade Tate for pick (3rd or 4th) and use that pick to draft Lattimore?

    I'd be happy if Jerry Jones drafted him. :pop:
