Occasionally, players mature later in their careers. Latimer flashed early in Denver but didn't work well with Peyton Manning and Latimer wound up in depth chart purgatory. He'll get a new shot with a new Manning in New York. He's a big athlete with a nice catch radius. If he can improve his routes and consistency, he could emerge as a starter. The early praise in OTAs indicates he has a chance to compete for significant playing time.

Summary

The Broncos had high hopes for Cody Latimer when John Elway selected him in the 2nd round of the 2014 draft. He was going to add a dynamic playmaker to the already established duo of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Many thought it a matter of when not if Latimer overcame the veterans in the pecking order. Things didn't work out that way as Latimer's confidence was shaken by Peyton Manning's rigorous demands. He caught just 35 passes in four seasons and scored three times. A fresh start should serve him well, and he enters his first year in New York atop the depth chart alongside Sterling Shepard and Odell Beckham. The college tape and measurables paint Latimer as a multi-faceted receiver capable of playing any position and running an entire route tree. His tenure in Denver shows a tentative hands-catcher with trouble gaining separation. Does the truth lie somewhere in between? (May 20)

Giants | Cody Latimer pushing to start (Sat Jun 9, 11:50 PM) - New York Giants WR Cody Latimer could emerge as the No. 3 receiver and the kick returner this year, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.

Our View: Latimer has always been a 'what if' player in the NFL. A second-round pick out of Indiana in 2014, Latimer failed to build strong chemistry with QB Peyton Manning early in his days with the Broncos. Injuries plagued his game along with inconsistency even after Manning retired. With a fresh start in 2018, Latimer is out to prove he can play up to the potential he displayed for the Hoosiers in college. We'll see if he can connect with Eli Manning to win the no.3 job for the Giants behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.
