Default Kubiak 'Really Excited' About Latimer's Role in Offense

“I’m really excited about what he can bring and I know he’s a lot better now than when he started,” Kubiak said. “I’m excited moving forward.”

Kubiak has been talking up Latimer all offseason, and has also said that the Ravens were high on Latimer heading into the draft last year, when Kubiak was Baltimore’s offensive coordinator. With Demaryius Thomas out of offseason work before signing his new contract last week, that gave Latimer a lot more time to work with Peyton Manning and the first-string offense. Now the Broncos need to see that work translate to the production that Latimer lacked as a rookie.

Interesting that Kubiak and the Ravens were looking at him and can't wait to see what Latimer can do in this offense. I'm envisioning something along the lines of Anthony Miller

He's gonna be asked to fill some major roles. A lot depends on his progression.

I'm glad we have big corners cause I think the kids gonna be good.

I would love to be hearing Brandon marshall comparisons for on field performance.

One anonymous source said he's the best WR to be drafted in the last 7 decades, therefore it's true.

Cue OM Draftnik: Latimer doesn't have the mental capacity to grasp the Offense and doesn't work hard.

Latimer admitted himself in an interview with MHR that he struggled to get acclimated to the playbook last year due to its complexity.

Med touched on these issues and more when he was drafted.

Loads of talent. Lets see if he pulls it together.

agreed. that was a good game for a couple of the guys who are being touted as the future.

glad Kubes is stoked about Latimer. another play from that SF game....pretty devastating run block here:

Name one rookie WR that didn't struggle. That is not news. However, I do remember the particularly malicious slant towards Latimer. I reserve the right to bring it up whenever necessary.

Every player likely "struggles" with some sort of transition to the NFL. That being said, there have been a handful of early round picks over the past several years who have taken the NFL by storm and put up some good numbers right out the gate.

DT didn't exactly have the best start to a career either, but it often takes a little time for WRs

Especially those in an offense where the qb does not tolerate mental mistakes

I really liked Latimer coming out of IU

Latimer has the luxury of time though with Sanders and DT being on the team still

Well he was really the only one that did struggle last year to be honest.
