Cody Latimer drafted by Broncos

Wide receiver Cody Latimer, who starred at Indiana as a junior last season, was selected by Denver with the 24th pick in the second round of the NFL draft Friday.

Once viewed as a potential first-round choice, Latimer ended up No. 56 overall. Still, that was higher than many predicted 12 months ago.

"When you are one of the strongest receivers you will ever come across and have real good hands and natural receiving skills, that’s going to push you up," ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper said. "I think people are saying with another year, he could have been a top-10 to -15 guy."

Latimer becomes the fifth Hoosier receiver drafted since 2002. He will have a chance to catch passes from Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, a longtime star with the Colts.

Latimer played in eight games as a freshman, caught 51 passes in 2012 and then became a true prospect in his third year in Bloomington, posting 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns on 72 receptions.

A left foot injury prevented Latimer, 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, from working out at the league's scouting combine.
