Ricky Proehl and Don Gregory having dinner with WR Lattimer

Recommended Posts



If we want him he will need to be taken in the first. He very likely won't last until 60 and I would not be shocked if he was the 4th or 5th WR off the board.

the panthers had one of their senior scouts at his pro day plus this news about dinner with the position coach and director of college scouting.

 

 

Now if you noticed in the images you saw Panthers senior college scout Jeff Morrow was watching Latimer in the images, (Morrow is the scout wearing the brown fleece pull over and blue jeans.) Now take this for what you will but with the news of Latimer being used as one of our 30 visits allowed and senior college scout Morrow in attendance I would look at this to be a serious option for Carolina to use a pick on Latimer in the upcoming NFL Draft.

I looked over about 7 mocks from the big mockers--the average # of WRs taken before we pick was between 4 and 5 (about 4.7).  Round it  to 5.

 

Assume Watkins and Evans are not in the picture.  That leaves 3 more WRs likely to be drafted before we pick.

 

Beckham, Cooks, Lee, Lattimer.are still on the board.

 

Personally, I think they will have a choice between Cooks, Lee, and/or Lattimer--at least 2 of these 3.   They will bring/ have brought in all 3 WRs for visits.  Lattimer seems to have garnered the most attention.

 

It seems we are drafting one of these 3 players in the first round.

I'm to the point where I want Turner in the 1st and Latimer in the 2nd.

Other way around for me honestly, don't know if turner lasts that long, though..

Watching the highlight reel Id be suprised if he made it to #28 in the 3rd - guy isnt afraid to get hit.

 

He'll be there, or someone of similar talent.  Loads of WRs this year.  

 

A top 20 pick is similar to a top 10 pick from last year (quote from a GM)

There will be a lot of first-year starters selected in the fourth and fifth round

 

 

 

as deep across the board as any draft I've seen in 30 years

Latimer, has in fact caught our eye. He is currently apart of the evaluation process, as we lead up to the draft.

Players part of the evaluation process usually get cut.

(1) LEE / COOKS / ODELL / BENJAMIN

(2) BITONIO / TURNER

(3) LATIMER

With all the attention he is getting do you think he will be there for us in the 3rd?

Since when is latimer considered a guy "likely" to go in the first or early second? I've read probably hundreds of mock drafts and done at least 50 myself. I don't remember ever seeing him go before out second pick. I like him as much as the next guy but to say he (almost definitely) won't be there by our second pick is silly and uninformed. There will be better value available in the first. This board goes through the same rigamoral every few weeks about its latest favorite draftee. Until this dinner meeting it was widely assumed that he would be a 3rd round target. I can tell you that he is being projected to go later than that, though sounds like a riser so I doubt he would drop much more than that. I don't think id be angry with him in the first but geez.

I have been a bit of a WR slut this year.  Started off wanting Beckham, then I single-handedly discovered Moncrief and felt he would be a third round steal, then I went to Matthews.  Still like these guys, but Lattimer is the kid I cannot get out of my mind.  Think I will send him flowers.

 

Seriously, he seems to be a tremendous talent hidden on a bad team.

A WR slut ....I love it
