Indiana WR Cody Latimer Visiting San Diego Chargers Today

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Here is the scouting report via CBS Sports:

STRENGTHS: Possesses thick, athletic-looking frame and an impressive speed/agility combination that enable him to separate consistently as a route-runner, and extend plays after the catch both in space and on contact. Flashes soft hands and good coordination when asked to extend and pluck the ball off his frame, and positions his body nicely when adjusting to balls thrown off stride.

Flashes the physicality and initial quickness to develop into a receiver who could beat press coverage at the next level, and is a willing blocker in the running game with room to improve his technique there.

WEAKNESSES: Occasional concentration issues leading to drops. Though Latimer exhibits burst and hip-sink to separate out of cuts, he seems to lack a second gear when asked to pull away vertically and may struggle to consistently threaten the top of the defense. As a route-runner, lacks precision at times as he’ll round off his cuts, and he needs to get better at working his way back to the ball on hitches and comeback routes.

Here are some of his highlights:

      Love it! I hope he’s there in the 3rd.

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        would be a nice pickup in the 3rd round!

        • BlueBoltFan

          He’d be highway robbery in the 3rd round.

      I don’t know what peppermint rolls have to do with Cody Latimer, but Philip sure is excited.

      • Marcel West-Bailey

        Peppermint rolls?

        • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

          When this gif first popped up, it was universally agreed upon on Deadspin that Philip is saying “Nnnn peppermint rolls!”

          Although, of course, that’s not what he’s saying.

          • Marcel West-Bailey

            Lol that’s pretty funny….come to think of it. That sleeve Lattimer wears kinda looks like a peppermint

  • Gunnar Martin

    Love that we’re showing interest in this guy. He’s a baller.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      same here, I really hope we get him.

  • Julien Bélair

    like the kid but I prefer the guy from Clemson…not Watkins of course… Bryant

    • BlueBoltFan

      I don’t prefer Bryant over Latimer, but I do like him a lot. Upside galore. Cut right out of the Randy Moss, AJ Green mold.

  • arnie

    The Chargers can’t go wrong with this kid either.

  • Tazzster

    Roby
    Attaochu
    Latimer

    Seems like a solid draft to me….

    Get er done TT!

    • Julien Bélair

      Verrett way before Roby imo

      • Tazzster

        All we know is that they had Roby in to work him out. Does that mean they are super interested? Or does it mean they did not get a good feel for him at the combine and wanted to do more research. Another question… did he fail the interview?

        Not sure. I guess if you get a good feel for somebody at a pro day or the combine you might not need to bring them in at all. Lots of speculation….

        I am sure the Chargers have done their homework on the top 5 CBs. Probably even the top 10.

        • Julien Bélair

          Ya I am not worried at all !

  • Diegoblue

    Would be a nice addition.. Bryant, Moncrief or Latimer it would be ALL good. This WR corps this year is loaded with depth and Matthews .. gotta get one

  • RoyalChargers
