Broncos second-round pick Cody Latimer caught a 33-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's second preseason game against the 49ers.
Running with the Broncos' twos, Latimer went up and over 49ers rookie CB Dontae Johnson for his 33-yard score in the third quarter, delivered by Brock Osweiler. It was the first reception of Latimer's pro career; he finished Denver's exhibition opener catch-less on one target. Latimer is worth a late pick in best-ball and deeper re-draft leagues, but needs one of Denver's top three receivers to miss time in order to become useful in fantasy. Aug 17 - 7:13 PM

Date:

Broncos second-round WR Cody Latimer "had an excellent first week of practice."

Demaryius Thomas missed the first four days to handle a personal matter, allowing Latimer to get first-team reps. He "made the best play of camp" on a deep post from Brock Osweiler and has shown no ill-effects from the foot injury that limited him at OTAs. Latimer should open as Denver's No. 4 wideout, but will have top-25 fantasy upside if any of the Broncos' top three go down.

Second-round rookie WR Cody Latimer is a full participant at Broncos camp.

A foot injury limited Latimer this spring, but the 56th pick in May's draft is shining early in camp. He beat first-round CB Bradley Roby for a long TD from Brock Osweiler in Thursday's practice and has "showed no issues" with the foot. In addition to his impressive size-speed combination, the Denver Post reports the Broncos considered Latimer "the best blocking receiver in the draft."

Broncos second-round pick Cody Latimer (foot) was limited during OTAs, but "did offer glimpses of how adept he is at winning the ball in contested situations."

ESPN reporter Jeff Legwold also confirms Latimer "is on track to be ready for the regular season opener." Latimer stands 6-foot-3, 215 and ran in the 4.3s at his Pro Day. It was Sigmund Bloom who suggested Latimer could be this year's Keenan Allen. He just needs to catch one break higher on the depth chart.

Broncos signed No. 56 overall pick WR Cody Latimer to a four-year contract.

The Broncos are limiting Latimer's offseason reps as he recovers from a January 19 foot operation. Currently fourth or fifth on the depth chart, Latimer is a West Coast-style possession receiver with velcro hands and a plus catch radius (32 5/8-inch arms). He doesn't turn 22 until October. Latimer will come into immediate re-draft relevance if any of Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker or Emmanuel Sanders goes down with injury.

As expected, the Broncos are limiting second-round pick Cody Latimer's OTA reps as he recovers from January 19 left-foot surgery.

The Broncos have no incentive to rush Latimer into team drills with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, and Emmanuel Sanders entrenched as their base three-receiver set. Latimer did catch a touchdown pass in goal-line work during Monday's OTA session. If Welker or Sanders suffers an injury this year, Latimer could appear on the re-draft radar. For now, he's more of a Dynasty league asset.

Cody Latimer conceded that he's not in "much of a rush" to get immediate playing time as a rookie.

Latimer understands his place on a crowded wideout depth chart that includes Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Emmanuel Sanders and Andre Caldwell. "I'm here to get on the field, but it's not much of a rush," he said. "I can learn from (the veterans) and don't have to get pushed into the system too early." The physically impressive Latimer is a Dynasty gem, but a mere late-round flier in re-draft formats. Thomas owners would do well to target Latimer as a cheap "handcuff."

Broncos second-round WR Cody Latimer (foot) is expected to be limited until training camp.

Latimer broke the fifth metatarsal in his foot and underwent surgery on January 19. He missed the Scouting Combine, aside from bench press, before clocking 4.39 and 4.43 forties at the Hoosiers' Pro Day. The Broncos are going to give Latimer time to fully recover. He'll handle mostly mental reps during OTAs and minicamp. It was already going to be tough for Latimer to overtake Emmanuel Sanders for No. 3 duties. He'll likely open 2014 as the Broncos' No. 4.

CBS Denver has been "told" that second-round WR Cody Latimer will compete for a starting job "this year."

We wouldn't read too much into this as coaches aren't going to rule out anything in May. They'll preach competition right up to Week 1. But if by some chance the sticky-fingered Latimer is able to unseat Emmanuel Sanders at any point in the season, his fantasy upside will be massive. If not, Latimer will have to wait until 2015 -- when Wes Welker is a free agent -- to really make his mark. Either way, the fact that the Broncos used a second-round pick on high-ceiling Latimer takes a lot of air out of Sanders' fantasy-breakout balloon.
May 14 - 12:05 PM

Broncos traded up with the 49ers to select Indiana WR Cody Latimer with the No. 56 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

It's a very suitable Eric Decker replacement. 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 - 8:55 PM

"Several sources" tell NFL draft insider Tony Pauline that Indiana WR Cody Latimer "won't get out of round two," and "could surprise" as a late first-round pick.

Per Pauline, "there's little debate" Latimer is "the fastest riser at the receiver position," after blowing away evaluators at his Pro Day with forty times as fast as 4.39. Latimer is also seen as a wideout who "consistently wins out for contested passes," a trait with increased value in an increasingly man-coverage league. Latimer was recently worked out by Panthers WRs coach Ricky Proehl. We expect him to be an early to mid second-round selection.
Apr 25 - 1:27 PM

After studying five games of Indiana WR Cody Latimer, ESPN's Todd McShay declared him "the most underrated player in the draft."

"He did not drop a pass in five games I studied," stated McShay, who is all-in on Latimer's pro prospects. Latimer stands just under 6-foot-3 and weighs 215, and McShay reported he was clocked as fast as 4.39 at IU's Pro Day. There are whispers Latimer could sneak into the back end of the draft's first round. Jets GM John Idzik and Chargers GM Tom Telesco attended Latimer's Pro Day.
