Broncos selected Indiana WR Cody Latimer with the No. 56 overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Another toy for Peyton Manning. Latimer (6-foot-2 5/8, 215) made 24 starts in three seasons with the Hoosiers, ringing up 135 grabs for 2,042 yards (15.1 YPR) and 17 touchdowns, also shining as a tackler on IU's special teams units. Latimer broke his foot at February's Combine, but rebounded to run in the 4.39-4.44 range at Indiana's Pro Day, adding a 39-inch vertical. A West Coast-style possession receiver with velcro hands and a plus catch radius (32 5/8-inch arms), Latimer is only 21 with room to grow into a quality No. 2 wideout. He dropped just one pass among 119 senior-year targets. Latimer has physical tools to beat man coverage and is a noticeably competitive player on film. He'll start off as the No. 4 receiver, but will be one injury away from some serious re-draft fantasy appeal. May 9 - 8:58 PM

Indiana WR Cody Latimer met with the Ravens last week.

Baltimore has already shown a level of interest in the Hoosiers' star, dispatching WR coach Bobby Engram to his pro day workout. Baltimore, picking No. 17, is probably slotted a bit too high to select Latimer, but nobody will bat an eye if he's selected in the 20s. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder ran a 4.39 forty at the exhibition Engram took in on a healing foot that wasn't 100-percent healthy. He also owns a 39-inch vertical jump. He'll be totally healed by the time camp rolls around.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt reports that the 49ers "paid particular attention to" Indiana WR Cody Latimer after his private workout.

"49ers paid particular attention to Cody Latimer yesterday. WR coach John Morton spend 1.5 hrs with Latimer after workout going over playbook," Gil Brandt tweeted. The 49ers are desperately looking for young talent to join their WR unit with veterans Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin leading the pack. Their two backups are newly acquired Brandon Lloyd and second-year talent Quinton Patton. Latimer could be the big-bodied, play-making receiver the 49ers are looking for on the outside; his physical style of play fits in nicely with their power-running, ball-control offense. Latimer has generated quite the buzz as of late and it's possible plenty of teams could be interested in Latimer's services at the end of the first round.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Indiana WR Cody Latimer had a private workout with the Philadelphia Eagles today.

"Eagles, who were three-deep at WR Cody Latimer’s workout today, spent 20 minutes post-workout having him run their routes. They pick No. 22," Rapoport tweeted. While Cody Latimer is one of 30 draft prospects to be invited to attend the draft in New York City, is it possible that Latimer could be the Eagles pick at No. 22? The Eagles have shown a ton of interest and he looks to be a good fit in a Chip Kelly offense. Latimer has the size, speed and play making ability that has allowed his stock to rise as of late. If the Eagles feel he's the right fit, it's a possibility they could pull the trigger, if they feel that strongly about Latimer.

Indiana WR Cody Latimer will work out for "nearly every team" today in Indianapolis, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Latimer has been recovering from a foot fracture, and plans on going through every on-field drill during this delayed pro day. Latimer has exceptionally good hands and can run for a big body. He doesn't separate as much as others while on the ground, but he creates a sliver of space as the ball approaches. The end of the first-round is not out of the question for Latimer.

Despite the re-signing of WR Robert Meachem, ESPN's Mike Triplett believes "the Saints should absolutely still draft a receiver" and speculates that "they will."

Triplett mentioned Mel Kiper slotting Indiana WR Cody Latimer to the Saints at No. 27 in a mock draft published on Thursday. "The Saints could use a dynamic receiving threat immediately to help them stretch the field. More important, they need to start developing a future No. 1 or No. 2 guy with Colston now in his 30s," Triplett wrote. New Orleans currently has Marques Colston and Kenny Stills penciled in as starters, with Meachem, Nick Toon, Joe Morgan and Andy Tanner in reserve.

ESPN's Mel Kiper slotted Indiana WR Cody Latimer to the Saints at No. 27 in a mock draft published on Thursday.

Latimer has seen one of the most meteoric risers of this year's process, along with Pitt QB Tom Savage. "No player has risen faster on my board recently, and I'm not alone," Kiper wrote. "He's always looked good in the size/speed equation, it's just that a closer look shows you a player who was extremely reliable as a pass-catcher. The Saints need depth at wide receiver after losing one of Drew Brees' favorite targets in Lance Moore, not to mention the departure of Darren Sproles in a pass-catching sense." Latimer probably won't make it out of the top half of the second round. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder ran a 4.39 forty at his pro day on a healing foot that wasn't 100-percent healthy coming off a break.

ESPN's Todd McShay said on the "First Draft" podcast that he was "blown away" by Indiana WR Cody Latimer's game tape.

The analyst mentioned Latimer's size, burst, sticky hands and route running amongst his numerous strengths. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Latimer clocked forties ranging from 4.39 to 4.44 at his pro day despite not being totally healed from a broken foot. "I watched five full games of him, and he didn't drop a pass," McShay gushed. He concluded: "I think Latimer is one of the sleepers in this class. ... He belongs in the top 50 picks." McShay believes he'd be a good fit in a West Coast system such as Kansas City's.

Indiana WR Cody Latimer is visiting the Lions on Friday.

Upon a game tape evaluation of Indiana WR Cody Latimer, NFL.com's Bucky Brooks believes the buzz surrounding the prospect is legitimate and thinks Latimer "could emerge as a potential No. 1 receiver in the right situation."

The 6-2, 215-pound Latimer clocked forties ranging from 4.39 to 4.44 at his pro day despite not being totally healed from his broken foot. Brooks loved that combination of size and speed, of course, but also discovered on tape a better prospect than he expected. "[Latimer] is a superb athlete with tantalizing physical dimensions," he wrote. "Although he is still a work in progress as a route runner, he has all of the traits to develop into a solid starter in the NFL, with the potential to become a No. 1 receiver. I would rank him as a solid second-round talent, but I could see him ranking higher in some draft rooms based on the growing preference for big-bodied receivers on the perimeter."

Receivers coach Ricky Proehl and director of college scouting Don Gregory will be the contingent that visits Latimer.
