02/25/14 - RB Marcus Lattimore is close to 100 percent after recovering from a knee injury suffered during his senior season at South Carolina. Lattimore was selected in the fourth round of last year's draft, even though the 49ers knew he would likely miss the entire season.
Lattimore said, "The left knee, it feels like nothing ever happened. The right knee, it feels great. Both feel balanced. I've got my speed and I rarely get any soreness."
He is anxiously awaiting the beginning of official offseason conditioning on April 21.
"I can't go out there and be Superman the first day," he said. "Once I get back in the groove and take a few hits, I'll be OK."

It's uncertain whether Lattimore will see the field in 2013 as he continues to recover from major knee surgery following a gruesome injury last season.
After drafting Lattimore in the fourth round of last month's draft, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has considered sitting him out.
"I think that would be fine," he told the Sacramento Bee earlier this month. "Whatever happens, you know, these next three months will probably determine that. I'm just going to continue to keep working hard, and if I'm called upon, I feel like hopefully I'll be ready."
Harbaugh said Lattimore has progressed well so far.
"Everything looks good structurally with all the guys that we drafted," he said. "The ACL looks really good for Marcus. We're just going to have to take a step back in terms of the cutting because we want that inside of the knee, the lateral side of the knee, to heal fully. But we're good."
