In three seasons with the Hoosiers, Latimer caught 135 passes for 2,042 yards and 17 touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Latimer had an impressive junior season with 72 catches for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns.
Latimer reportedly ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash at Indiana’s pro day in the aftermath of foot surgery, so his draft stock likely got a bit higher.
The Eagles pick at No. 22 in the first round and it looks as if they’re keeping a close watch on Latimer, who recorded five games with at least 100 yards receiving, including three touchdowns against Illinois.
“I think I put up some good numbers that caught scouts' eyes,” Latimer told the Indianapolis Star after his pro day. “That’s all I needed to do.”
“I’ve been back to jogging through routes, and I’m starting to cut now,” Latimer told the Indianapolis Star. “Hopefully those [visits] go well, and just go from there.”
Latimer was a second-team All-Big Ten selection this past year and he could wind up being a nice fit in Eagles coach Chip Kelly's high-octane offense.
