As the 2014 NFL Draft rapidly approaches, there has been a lot of attention thrown recently in the direction of Indiana Hoosiers wide receiver, Cody Latimer, and deservedly so. He was one of the more underrated wide receivers in the country last season, and one of the teams that took a closer look at him heading into the draft was the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Latimer spent last nt/today with @Panthers staff. 17 teams already slotted to attend his 4/25 pro day. Will be 100% healthy from foot injury

After the offseason they’ve had, the Panthers are in desperate need of some wide receiver help, and Latimer could be a target in the later rounds.
Does that mean that Carolina could take more than one wide receiver in this draft? Well, not directly, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea by any means to try and get Cam Newton the best young help they can find.
Last season for Indiana, Latimer had a monster year in which he compiled 72 catches for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns.
