Former Indiana Hoosiers’ wide receiver Cody Latimer is flying up the draft boards.
Last week, 25 teams, including Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach Chip Kelly, watched Latimer work out.
The San Francisco 49ers sent wide receivers’ coach John Morton to watch the workout and some believe Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers are targeting Latimer in next week’s draft.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network and NFL.com, another Harbaugh is very interested in Latimer. John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens had Latimer in for a visit this weekend.
The Ravens’ passing game really struggled last year after Anquan Boldin was traded to the 49ers. They have tried to right the ship by signing former Carolina Panthers’ wide receiver Steve Smith, who was released earlier in the offseason. Latimer would make a very nice addition to Steve Smith and Torrey Smith and could help get the Ravens back into the postseason.
Latimer made 72 receptions for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013.
