Yeah, just as a reminder, this is what Lattimore tore:JoshGordonsDealer wrote:If I am sitting with the 1.01 because I "earned" it, I would not TOUCH Gurley. If he doesn't return to pre-injury form, or he gets reinjured, it's a wasted pick and another year rebuilding. There are safer options.
Incidentally, his tear is not NEARLY as bad as Lattimore's. Lattimore positively destroyed his knee.
ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL in his right knee and ACL in his left knee.
The doc who operated said he had to repair or reconstruct 8 or 9 structures in his knee and he basically only had one ligament left.
Gurley isn't very comparable to that, as he simply tore his ACL with no additional damage. It doesn't seem like much of a concern.
Gordon and Gurley both have risks, Cooper is probably the safest choice if you just want a player who will have a long and productive career.
