What the scouts are saying:

"A prep basketball standout, Latimer is a well-built, sure-handed, West Coast possession receiver whose hardwood background is evident in his leaping ability, body control and hand-eye coordination. Lacks ideal explosiveness, gear change and flexibility. Could be effective running slants and making contested catches to beat zone coverage and succeed in the red zone. Has a ceiling as a No. 3." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Possesses thick, athletic-looking frame and an impressive speed/agility combination that enable him to separate consistently as a route-runner, and extend plays after the catch both in space and on contact. Flashes soft hands and good coordination when asked to extend and pluck the ball off his frame, and positions his body nicely when adjusting to balls thrown off stride." (Derek Stephens, CBSSports.com)

"At his pro day, Latimer was said to have a great performance with a fast 40 and an impressive workout. Latimer has been rising and has positive momentum heading down the home stretch. He could crack the Top 100. Latimer decided to skip his senior season after producing a quality junior year for the Hoosiers." (WalterFootball.com)
