28) Cody Latimer - WR - Indiana
- I'll be honest, when I read on CSR that we'd had Latimer in for three meetings, I was a little bewildered. He's not a name that's been in the first round discussion very much this off-season. However, after looking at his tape, I like the thought of taking him in the first more and more. The guy is prototypical size for the position, runs a sub-4.5 40, and is a very competitive player. The guy earned the yards he had in 2013, catching a lot of quick slants over the middle. I think the knocks on him are is durability and route running, which will be well taken care of by Vermillion and Proehl respectively.
- I know we need an OT, but Yankey would be a steal at 60. I don't like the idea of Byron Bell starting at LT any more than anyone else, but getting someone on the inside who can help Bell out until we have a bona fide replacement for J Gross while simultaneously getting someone who will solidify the G position for a decade would be a start.
- Having graduated from the finest university South Carolina has to offer, I hate to give Gamecocks props. However, outside Connor Shaw, there isn't another player I'm happy I won't be seeing on the field next November. This guy can flat out play. He's quick, shifty, and dangerous with the ball in his hands. He's a poor man's Cooks, and provides great value at 92.
- This guy got out-shined by Ekpre-Olomu last season, but would be a good value pick in the 4th considering the patchwork group of guys we've got slated to start this season. At some point we'll have to start building a group that can play together for more than a season at a time.
- This is one guy I can't seem to place. I've seen him mocked as high as the third and as low as the sixth. If he's available in the fifth (which isn't outside the realm of possibility) he'd be a great addition. He might not be the answer at LT, but he could be a great RT in the NFL.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've mocked us taking two undersized WR's. I promise, I'm not just searching for another Smitty. This guy can play. He's shifty with the ball in his hands. While he's a tiny little fella, he's worth a shot in the sixth round.
- The guy is massive, is a mauler, and is exactly the kind of guy Getts loves. We need some new blood on the OL, and while it's cool that Kalil is capable of serenading his teammates, we need some nastiness in the trenches.
