NFL Draft Rumors: Eagles, Rams, Steelers, Colts & Redskins among 25 teams who watched Cody Latimer work out

Former Indiana Hoosiers’ wide receiver Cody Latimer is seemingly shooting up everyone’s draft board.

Latimer certainly looks the part. He is 6’2 and 215 pounds and was overlooked largely because of the lack of success from the Hoosiers’ program.

According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Indianapolis Colts, Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins were among the 25 teams who watched Latimer work out Friday.

 

Here is a scout’s take on Latimer.

A prep basketball standout, Latimer is a well-built, sure-handed, West Coast possession receiver whose hardwood background is evident in his leaping ability, body control and hand-eye coordination. Lacks ideal explosiveness, gear change and flexibility. Could be effective running slants and making contested catches to beat zone coverage and succeed in the red zone. Has a ceiling as a No. 3.

Latimer made 72 receptions for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013.
