Cody Latimer one of 30 prospects invited to NFL Draft

Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer will be one of 30 draft prospects to attend the draft in New York City, the NFL announced on Tuesday night. 

The second-team All-Big Ten wide receiver has seen his draft stock skyrocket since he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at Indiana’s Pro Day in late March. He had received a third-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee when he declared for the draft, but has been projected by several NFL Draft experts to creep into the first round. He could be one of the first wide receivers taken after Clemson’s Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, widely considered the top two prospects at that position.

Latimer is one of seven receivers who will be at the draft, including Watkins, Evans, LSU’s Odell Beckham, Brandin Cooks of Oregon State, Jordan Matthews of Vanderbilt and Marqise Lee of Southern California.

Congrats to Cody. Arrived at IU as an unheralded 3 star recruit. Now may very likely be taken in the 1st round. In recent years we’ve had a number of these guys in the program.
My pick for the next under the radar guy is Lorrell Williams. A red shirt freshman LB, 6’2″, 240, 4.6 40yd dash. Played scout team quarterback to prep the defense for James Franklin @ Mizzou last season. Mark my words, the kid can play.
Go Hoosiers.

Great honor for Cody, but if I were him, I’m not sure I’d attend unless he was very, very confident he’d be a first round pick. It’s humiliating and painful for these young me to be sitting there all day with the cameras on them and not get picked in the first round.

When is the last time we had an IU player in the “green room” in NYC for the NFL Draft?!

Go for it Cody…Todd McShay is even saying he’s expecting you to go in the 1st Round! You’re certainly a better receiving prospect than Antwaan Randle El ever was coming out of college, and last time I checked he had a pretty good NFL career.

I think he’ll be a high first round pick. He’s got all the makings to be a top NFL receiver.

Wow! This is awesome… The last 2 years watching CL play I knew he had what it took to be an NFL draft pick. The size, speed, strength, athleticism. He truly is a total package. Even thought I was always high on his ability, I have to admit I never thought he would be one of 30 invited to the NFL Draft. Congrats Cody!
