Lattimore, 22, sat out his rookie year while rehabilitating a major knee injury that he sustained in college, which included a torn MCL, PCL and a dislocated kneecap.
The 49ers drafted RB Carlos Hyde, who was considered to be the No. 1 running back in this year’s draft by a number of analysts, so it’s not as though they are counting on Lattimore to be a major contributor in 2014.
