Latimer visited the Seahawks Tuesday
By Terry Blount
Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer was in Seattle Tuesday for a private workout and visit with the Seahawks.
Latimer sent out this Tweet Tuesday afternoon, along with an Instagram photo of him wearing a Seahawks cap. He also included Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman's Twitter handles:
Wilson was not in Seattle Tuesday. He's in California working out with some of the other Seahawks.
Latimer (6-3, 215) was originally projected as fourth-round draft pick, but has been moving up most drafts boards recently after an impressive performance on Indiana’s pro day three weeks ago. He’s generally viewed as a second-round pick now, but the Seahawks might consider him at the end of the first round.
Latimer was the Hoosier’s MVP in 2013 with he caught 72 passes for 1,096 yards nine touchdowns. He had five games of more than 100 yards receiving last season before deciding to enter the NFL draft after his junior year.
Some experts compare Latimer to San Francisco receiver Anquan Boldin -- a physical player who can beat press coverage. Latimer has a reputation as an excellent route runner with the ability to make yards after the catch. He also is considered an above-average blocker.
Latimer is from Dayton, Ohio, where he also excelled in basketball and baseball during his high school years.
