As expected, Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer visited the Seahawks on Tuesday.
Latimer is projected as a third-rounder by NFLdraftscout.com.
He’s 6-foot-3, 215 pounds and led Indiana with 1,093 receiving yards. His Pro Day was April 4. Here’s a report from NFLdraftscout.com on that:
Speaking of underrated prospects. Indiana’s Cody Latimer has flown under the radar since the wide receiver declared early for the draft. But after his pro day this week, that might no longer be the case. Latimer ran a 4.38 40-yard dash and turned some heads with his speed and athleticism just two months removed from surgery on his left foot.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound wideout is a former basketball player who decided to play football in high school and found a new love. And NFL scouts are loving what he brings to the field, although clearly still growing and developing. Latimer, who also showed his strength with 23 reps on the bench press, was originally expected to be drafted somewhere on day two of the draft and his pro day performance only confirmed that thought. – Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
Teams can host up to 30 players during the pre-draft process. This was one of multiple visits for Latimer.
The Seahawks are also reported to have visits from or scheduled with wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Kevin Cummings of Oregon State, plus Kevin Smith of Washington. Having watched a lot of Smith, I can relay that he is fast and has decent size at 5-11 and 214 pounds. Smith was hurt in 2010 and 2012 before having a solid senior season in 2013 when he had 50 catches for 765 yards, averaging 15.3 yards per catch.
Running back Terrance West of Towson also reportedly visited the Seahawks on Tuesday. Here’s a bio of West, whom NFLdraftscout.com projects as a third-round pick.
