After losing talented wide receiver Golden Tate to the Detroit Lions this offseason, the Seattle Seahawks are in the market for some more depth at the wide receiver position, and a strong mid-round option for the team is Indiana Hoosiers product Cody Latimer. Touted as one of the sleepers out of an extremely deep and talented group of wide receivers in the 2014 NFL Draft class, Latimer has a pre-draft visit scheduled with the Seahawks, per a tweet from draft insider Tony Pauline.
The 6’3″, 215 pound wide receiver also has visits scheduled with the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, Oakland Raiders, and Detroit Lions. All of these teams could use more talented at the wide receiver position, and Latimer would be a strong option as a potential No. 4 wide receiver with upside. The Panthers are so bad at wide receiver that Latimer could be their WR3 to start the season if he ends up in Charlotte.
Latimer has the kind of size and speed blend that I’m sure Pete Carroll would love to add, because the Seahawks could use that kind of a wide receiver on their team. He has the ability to bring some of what Jermaine Kearse gives the Seahawks offense, because he can contest for jump balls deep; that’s something Russell Wilson likes out of his receivers, as the Seahawks love to run deep routes with big wideouts.
