Ex-Gamecock Marcus Lattimore braces for NFL draft

By PETE IACOBELLI
AP Sports Writer

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Marcus Lattimore and his surgically repaired knees are finally on the clock at the NFL draft.

The ex-South Carolina tailback will be in Atlanta with his representatives later this week to find out when, or if, the onetime college star will get selected when the draft starts Thursday.

Lattimore was projected as the first running back off the board and a certain first-rounder before the 2012 season began. But he suffered a second serious knee injury in as many years against Tennessee last October.

Saturday will mark six months since Lattimore dislocated his right knee cap and tore three ligaments. He had surgery in November and then gave up his senior season. He's worked ever since to convince the NFL he's the same first-round talent he was before getting hurt.
