Coach Gary Kubiak said he's "really excited" about second-year WR Cody Latimer.
"I’m really excited about what he can bring and I know he’s a lot better now than when he started," Kubiak said. "I’m excited moving forward." While Demaryius Thomas held out of all offseason team activities as he searched for a new contract, Latimer was the one working opposite Emmanuel Sanders with Peyton Manning and the first-team offense. That's something he rarely got to do as a rookie. "I think that this is going to be the year that he jumps on to the map -- on to the scene," Sanders said. "I think he’s going to have a big year." Latimer should be a fixture on offense in three-wide sets with Sanders kicking inside. Jul 20 - 6:28 PM

Cody Latimer believes he lost snaps to Andre Caldwell last season because he didn't know what he was doing on the field.

Latimer has vowed to not let that happen this year, immersing himself in Gary Kubiak's playbook and attending Peyton Manning's workouts at Duke. During OTAs and minicamp, Latimer ran with the first-stringers in place of unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas. As long as Latimer stays on course at training camp, he'll enter the season as the No. 3 wideout.

According to Yahoo's Charles Robinson, Broncos WR Cody Latimer "checked out mentally" during his rookie season.

Latimer has an abundance of physical tools, but wasn't mentally bought in as a rookie. Robinson reports Latimer was "unmotivated" by his low depth-chart standing, and took "a laid back approach to pretty much everything that comes along with NFL preparation." While the 2015 offseason reports have been glowing, this is an obvious red flag for Latimer's short- and long-term outlooks.

Cody Latimer is soaking up first-team reps at Broncos OTAs as unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas stays away from workouts.

"There's going to have to be some young receivers (who) really step up, and Cody's one of those guys," coach Gary Kubiak said. "I think it's a very competitive situation right now. But, yes, it's an important month for Cody." The 56th overall pick in last May's draft, Latimer runs 4.44 at 6-foot-3, 215 and has a 39-inch vertical. He projects as Denver's No. 3 receiver this year.

Cody Latimer says he saw so little playing time as a rookie because he didn't fully grasp Peyton Manning's offense.

It's not particularly surprising. The Broncos also had wideouts in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders that were simply better than Latimer. "It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer acknowledged. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower." Latimer worked out with Manning at Duke University this offseason and is in position to be Denver's No. 3 receiver.

Cody Latimer worked out with Peyton Manning at Duke University this offseason.

Earning Peyton's trust is a good idea, especially as Denver institutes a new offense. Latimer only saw four targets last season, but that's sure to rise with Wes Welker out of the picture. Despite immense physical tools, we remain skeptical Latimer will see enough 2015 opportunity for stable WR3 value.

Emmanuel Sanders said Cody Latimer is a "special player" and thinks "this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene."

Latimer is drawing rave reviews from virtually everyone in the organization and is entrenched as the No. 3 wideout. He'll play outside in three-wide formations, with Sanders kicking into the slot. However, we'd be more excited about a statistical leap if Gary Kubiak didn't prefer "12" formations and the Broncos weren't planning on reducing Peyton Manning's volume. Latimer's snap and target count are a concern.
Apr 13 - 6:11 PM

The Broncos are expected to line up in three-wide formations less often this season.

New coach Gary Kubiak prefers to execute his run-first, play-action scheme out of two-tight end personnel. That hasn't been Peyton Manning's style in the past, but it has to be now with his arm in such decline. Cody Latimer is still a very exciting prospect as a talented No. 3 wideout in an explosive offense, but he'll need an injury to Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders in order to realize a true breakout.
Apr 2 - 8:23 AM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak expects second-year WR Cody Latimer to "make a big jump" in 2015.

"He showed a lot of flashes from me watching him in practice," Kubiak said. "I think as the year went on he just showed he's got a lot of skill." The Broncos have made it clear they want Latimer to be their No. 3 wideout after limiting him to 37 snaps as a rookie. With Wes Welker no longer in Denver, Latimer projects as the outside receiver in three-wide formations across from Demaryius Thomas, with Emmanuel Sanders in the slot.
Mar 28 - 3:15 PM

VP John Elway has made it "pretty clear" the Broncos would like Cody Latimer to be their No. 3 wideout in 2015.

Demaryius Thomas will be the No. 1, Emmanuel Sanders the No. 2 and the hope is that Latimer makes enough strides as an NFL sophomore to be No. 3. That would normally be a really exciting role for a player in a Peyton Manning offense, but we're expecting more two-wide formations and run-centric gameplans from new head coach Gary Kubiak. Still, Latimer is in position to make a major statistical leap after he played just 37 snaps as a rookie.
Mar 2 - 10:31 AM

Coach Gary Kubiak said he "really, really liked" Broncos second-year WR Cody Latimer when he visited with him ahead of the 2014 draft.

"I spent a whole day with him in Baltimore," Kubiak said. "I think a lot of his ability." Latimer played just 37 snaps as a rookie, but is expected to take on a much larger role as a sophomore with Wes Welker a free agent and Andre Caldwell a release candidate. Latimer is the favorite to play outside opposite Demaryius Thomas in three-wide sets, with Emmanuel Sanders in the slot.
Feb 18 - 2:50 PM

The Broncos' website expects Cody Latimer to take on a bigger role next season.

Latimer appeared in just eight games (37 snaps) as a rookie, spending the entire year behind Andre Caldwell. With Wes Welker considering retirement and not expected to be re-signed, Latimer should open 2015 as Denver's No. 3 receiver. Latimer's snaps could be limited by Gary Kubiak's dual-tight end scheme, but his breakout potential is high in a Peyton Manning offense. Latimer should play outside in three-wide sets, with Emmanuel Sanders moving to the slot.
Feb 14 - 7:36 PM

Cody Latimer (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Latimer has been cleared to return, but remains behind Andre Caldwell on the depth chart. He would only have a role if Emmanuel Sanders (questionable, illness) is held out this week.

Cody Latimer has cleared the concussion protocol and will resume practicing this week.

The second-round pick has barely played on offense this season and would need a Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders injury to get into the rotation.
