NFL Draft Rumors: Cody Latimer Has Worked Out For Nearly Every Team; 49ers, Ravens Showing Most Interest?

One of the NFL Draft’s fastest-rising prospects, Cody Latimer, has certainly had a busy spring. In fact, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported the wide receiver has worked out with nearly all 32 clubs during his Indiana Pro Day.

Two teams in need of wide receiver help, the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, are among the teams showing the most interest in Latimer.

After Latimer’s Pro Day workout, he spent the  almost two hours going over the playbook with 49ers wide receiver coach John Morton. Then he packed up his bags and jumped on a plane to spend the weekend visiting with the Ravens. Baltimore and San Francisco pick 17th and 30th overall, respectably.

Per the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens intend to address the wide receiver position in the draft. The team has previously hosted Marqise Lee and Kelvin Benjamin, and has had “steady interest” in Latimer throughout the draft process.

The Niners’ 90-minute meeting with Latimer after his workout is not indicative that the team will draft, but there is precedence it will try. Since 2010, the team has had pre-draft meetings with four of its five first-round selections. And this year, one of the team’s most glaring needs is at wide receiver.

Latimer has previously worked out with the Detroit Lions, Washington Redskins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans, among others.
