I am on the Cody Latimer bandwagon

6'3" 215 lbs, 39 inch vertical, 4.38 speed.

This guy fits the WCO perfectly. He is a former basketball player with really strong hands and great hand-eye coordination.

This guy tore up Michigan State and got a TD on Dennard. He made him look helpless out there. Also had 9 TD's and 1,000 plus yards with a shitty QB.
I think Beckham Jr. Is a pipe dream at this point, but I'd definitely take this kid.

This guy can easily overpower small Db's and his speed is legit enough to desperate, as he did in college.

Think Latimer and Matthews are about the same in about every way.

There was some close competition on the 40 yd. Dash with Dwayne Bowe coming in at 4.40 with Craig Davis close behind with a 4.41 on his second run. Russell clocked in at 4.83, not too shabby for his size.
As I said, I think he's a poor man's Dwayne Bowe. That 4.39 (best case) doesn't translate to the field very well. He can't separate like Beckham or Moncrief. And he's not as good a receiver as Matthews, Norwood, Street, Robinson or the like.

If I'm taking a fast guy with size, I'd much rather have Moncrief way, way before Latimer and Bryant easily before him as well.

He got a third round grade by the NFL advisory board and was only Honorable Mention on the coaches team in his conference.

Dude is stiff. I think he's a #3 WR in the NFL due to his inability to separate and delays in getting into his breaks. Like I said, Indiana really only used him as an outside go and fade guy. He doesn't look like he's got the physical agility to maneuver against NFL level corners.

I'm going to agree with you, and then I'm going to take it a step further.

Matthews is the best WR in this class, and I'm going to laugh my ass off again this year when he proves it like Keenan Allen did a year ago. All because a bunch of idiots put far too much stock into him not blowing everyone's doors off at a ****in All-Star game.

I seem to remember Bowe running a 4.5?? Cody has pretty good hands. You say he can't get separation, but he put on a clinic vs Dennard.

Remember Cody did all his drills with a foot that hasn't recovered from injury.

BTW, I agree that Moncrief is the better prospect....but only just. I like Mathews but I don't think he's as good as the hype surrounding him.
