Dr Lattimore and Mr Hyde
Carlos Hyde 6-0, 230 out of OSU is turning heads in San Fan. Can a rehabbing Lattimore get healthy fast enough to compete for a spot on the 49er backfield while Hyde is going full speed ahead? The bruising OSU RB has been a fearsome pass target out the backfield as well.
Lattimore has been absent from the teams web site news blog since nursing muscle soreness around his knee a few weeks ago in OTAs. Lattimore will be in Columbia this weekend so hopefully we can hear from the RB himself about how his 1st season as a 49er is progressing.
It looks like SF drafted Hyde and Lattimore in the hopes that one will emerge as a force in a power running game this fall. Will SF keep both? It depends on how fast Lattimore gets up to speed but no doubt he has competition.
