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.

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.

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.

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.

Cody Latimer (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 15.

He'll miss his second straight game. Latimer has played just 19 snaps this year.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis believes it's time for the Broncos to "take the training wheels" off WR Cody Latimer.

Latimer, the 56th pick in May's draft, has been a healthy scratch for much of the season. He's played just 16 offensive snaps and has just one garbage-time nine-yard catch to his name. With this being the most productive rookie receiver class in NFL history, Latimer has seen the least playing time out of all the receivers picked in the first three rounds. Emmanuel Sanders suffered a concussion in Week 11, and Wes Welker looks done. Big, physical Latimer may get some snaps with Peyton Manning against Miami.

Broncos declared WR Cody Latimer, RB Ronnie Hillman, CB Tony Carter, RB Kapri Bibbs, LB Todd Davis, OT Michael Schofield, and TE Virgil Green inactive for Week 11 against the Rams.

Nor surprises. Latimer is back on the sideline in sweats as a healthy scratch. Hillman is expected to miss 2-6 weeks with a foot injury, while the Broncos will roll with C.J. Anderson, Montee Ball, and Juwan Thompson in the backfield.

Broncos rookie WR Cody Latimer recorded his first NFL catch in Week 10 against the Raiders, gaining nine yards.

He got a garbage-time catch with Brock Osweiler in the game. The 56th overall pick in May's draft, Latimer has been a healthy scratch for several games so far this season. The promising 22-year-old still carries plenty of Dynasty value.

Broncos WR Cody Latimer is active for Week 8 against the Chargers.

It's the first time Latimer has been active since Week 1. He's expected to contribute mainly on special teams with LB Steven Johnson (ankle) inactive. Also inactive for the Broncos are RB Montee Ball, RB Kapri Bibbs, CB Omar Bolden, OG Ben Garland, OT Michael Schofield and DT Mitch Unrein. Ball remains week to week.

Broncos declared WR Cody Latimer, RB C.J. Anderson, S David Bruton, LB Lerentee McCray, OG Ben Garland, OT Michael Schofield, and DT Mitch Unrein inactive for Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Second-round pick Latimer has been inactive for each of Denver's first four games. Ronnie Hillman gets the nod over Anderson behind Montee Ball.

Cody Latimer is a healthy scratch for Sunday's Week 3 game at Seattle.

Latimer played zero snaps in Week 1 and was a healthy scratch in Week 2. Now that Wes Welker is off suspension, he's even further off the radar and can be dropped in all re-draft formats. The rest of the Broncos inactives: Tony Carter, Lerentee McCray, Danny Trevathan, Michael Schofield and Mitch Unrein.

Broncos declared WR Cody Latimer, S David Bruton, CB Tony Carter, LB Danny Trevathan, OL Ben Garland, and OL Michael Schofield inactive for Week 2 against the Chiefs.

Latimer is a healthy scratch even with Wes Welker still suspended, suggesting the rookie is far behind Andre Caldwell. Trevathan has a knee injury. Special teamer Bruton has a bum shoulder.

Cody Latimer played zero snaps against the Colts in Week 1.

The Broncos compensated for Wes Welker's absence by kicking Emmanuel Sanders into the slot and using Andre Caldwell (42-of-77 snaps) as an outside receiver when they went three-wide. The Denver Post has reported that Latimer is coming along nicely, but he's not quite up to speed in the no-huddle offense. The second-round rookie is only a deep stash now, especially with Welker having a chance to get his suspension reduced.
