Prospect Profile: Cody Latimer

Posted Apr 20, 2014

Learn more about Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer.


In order to familiarize fans with some of the top names in the 2014 NFL Draft, Chargers.com will be highlighting a different prospect each weekday leading up to the first day of the draft on May 8th.

We continue the series with a scouting report of wide receiver Cody Latimer.

Name: Cody Latimer
School: Indiana
Height: 6-2
Weight: 215 pounds
Position: Wide Receiver

To say Cody Latimer’s stock is rising right now would be an understatement.  The Indiana wide receiver has generated so much buzz as of late that the once under the radar prospect is now poised to be an early selection come draft day.

Latimer improved by leaps and bounds over his career with the Hoosiers, culminating in an impressive junior season.   He was the team’s leading receiver in 2013, catching 72 balls for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns.  Latimer’s best game came in a 52-35 win over Illinois when he had a career day, catching 11 passes for 189 yards and three touchdowns. Over three seasons in Bloomington he recorded 135 receptions for 2,042 yards and 17 touchdowns.

At 6-2, 215-pounds, Latimer possesses terrific size for his position.  As a result, he has a ridiculously big catch radius, and when the ball is near him he almost always comes up with the catch. While not the speediest wideout, Latimer is sneakily faster than most think. He is also possesses brute strength, posting the most reps on the bench press (23) than any other wideout despite barely participating in February’s Scouting Combine due to a left foot injury. 

Primarily a basketball standout in high school, Latimer is still learning the nuances of the game, but there is no denying his raw ability.  Looking at Latimer’s complete package of strength, athleticism and steady hands, it’s no wonder he is shooting up the draft charts.
