Seahawks will work out former Indiana WR Cody Latimer


Still looking to add depth to their receiving corps, the Seahawks have reportedly scheduled a private workout with former Indiana Hoosier Cody Latimer, per The Baltimore Sun.

Latimerhas also garnered interest from the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Oakland Raiders, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles, but the Seahawks did not want to get left behind.

The 6-foot-3, 215 pound Latimer had a great career as a Hoosier, recording 135 catches for 2,042 yards and 17 touchdowns, but a broken foot bone kept him from participating in the NFL scouting combine in February.

However, he impressed scouts across the league with a great Pro Day on Wednesday.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, Latimer also performed a 39-inch vertical leap.

The Seahawks have been looking for a receiver to replace Golden Tate since he departed last month to play for the Lions.

Latimer figures to be a late first round or early second round pick, but it’s hard to tell where he will wind up since the 2014 draft class is so deep with receivers.

If the Seahawks want him, they would probably have to use their No. 32 pick and bypass an offensive lineman.

Seattle will use their private workout to determine if he is worth their first draft pick.

    Latimer was All Big Ten honorable mention, Jared Abbrederis was All Big Ten 1st team. All time #1 Wisconsin receiver, all time #1 Wisconsin kick returner, #5 punt returner.

    Wilson had a great season teaming up with Abbrederis at Wisconsin, it’s a mystery why there isn’t more interest, at least in Seattle. Maybe they’re trying to keep in on the downlow, and snatch Abbrederis in a later round.
