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.
