Ricky Proehl and Don Gregory having dinner with WR Lattimer

It seems the only pushback on drafting Latimer is bc it messes up one's previous mock draft they posted lol.. Or they never heard of him and he did not get the hype till just now.

Understood as I was hoping we would get him in the third or fourth but like a Stephon Gilmore in the draft two seasons ago...the more tape watched...size/speed/ability is broke down the more that player looks like an elite player in the draft.

Latimer looks the part of a number one more than a Cooks(slot), Odell B jr(slot), K Benj(raw and possibly too big to be no.1), Marquse Lee(run blocking).

I would be happy with any of the above players but the more you see Latimer..the more you hear scouts break him down..the more he seems like a no brainer WR in the first.

I'm a huge Cody Latimer fan.  I won't complain no matter where we take him, but, in the first round, I can see them going OL if a guy they like is there.

Chargers blogger:

"Is Cody Latimer this years Keenan Allen?

...

One of, if not the most important thing a receiver has to be able to do is make contested catches at the next level. That's what separates Keenan Allen to most rookies, and why it's easy to see why Latimer will be successful. Latimer has very strong hands, and does a good job of catching the ball away from his body. I saw one drop in 7 games, and that was in the rain.

...

He has great body control, and does a good job of high pointing the ball, and not only coming down with it, but coming down with it in bounds. He makes spectacular catches look routine....he plucks the ball away from his frame, has strong hands and adjusts to the ball. He can win the 50/50 ball, and has enough speed to stretch the field. ... Latimer appears to have the talent to develop into a special player. Latimer reminds me of Brandon Marshall + Keenan Allen."

writer at NFLMocks.com:

"When I asked NFL analyst Matt Miller if Cody Latimer could go in the first round he said of Latimer, 'definitely.' This is a big receiver with speed, agility, and huge upside that is almost guaranteed not to slip out of the top 32 picks in a couple of weeks."

Matthew Fairburn' NFL Draft Editor at SB Nation:

"Cody Latimer is the type of big, fast wide receiver that Cam Newton hasn't gotten a chance to work with yet in his career. It's long overdue."
