3. Cody Latimer
Yes, but did you know that Latimer ran a 4.38 40-yard-dash at the combine two months post-surgery on a broken foot? To be honest, I didn’t know that either until today.
Per Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star, draft analyst Tony Pauline reported that “Scouts were surprised to the point of being impressed a 215-pound receiver was able to run so well so soon after foot surgery.”
Latimer was eventually drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos.
The fact of the matter remains, Latimer is a “two birds with one stone” option. He’s fast enough to win over the top and can provide yet another red-zone weapon for the Titans.
To put his hops into perspective, Latimer recorded a 39″ vertical at the combine, while Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf recorded a 40.5″ vertical during his combine performance in 2019.
Imagine a world where the Titans’ red-zone package utilized Davis in the slot (yes, he does run routes from the slot, I promise), Brown and Latimer on the boundary, and tight ends Jonnu Smith and Anthony Firkser lurking off the line of scrimmage.
