With impressive measurables and sterling college tape, Broncos WR Cody Latimer turns a head or two just by walking onto the practice field, even though his work this weekend was limited as he completes recovery from foot surgery in January.
"He's a physical specimen, and when he plays, he plays his size," said Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase. "To see him catch the ball as well as he does, and then his blocking is unbelievable. I don't think I've really seen a college guy go after it the way he has in the past, and hopefully he just carries that over to this level."
With his natural gifts and his second-round status, Latimer can count on having time to develop.
"I'm here to get on the field, but it's not much of a rush," he said. "I can learn from (the veterans) and don't have to get pushed into the system too early."
There have been rumblings that Latimer might push for snaps in the Broncos three-WR sets, forcing Emmanuel Sanders to the bench, but given his foot injury and these comments, it doesn't sound like he subscribes to that plan.
