Default Latimer preparing to take himself to the next level

"I feel like I’m ready, especially coming in a new offense, everybody gets a clean slate so we’re all starting from Day 1, and it’ll be exciting," he said. "I get to work with Peyton coming up soon, so he’ll be able to get me more into the offense and getting my learning curve, taking it to the next level."

Latimer said he'll be heading to Durham, N.C. next week to join the Peyton and Eli Manning at Duke University for their yearly workout session, ready to lay the groundwork for timing and chemistry that will be vital in the coming season.

"It’s my first time there, so it should be fun. I know we’re going to be working, studying, probably watching film and running routes," Latimer said. "It’s a good connection. It’s an early head start, in other words, to something that should be great. So that’s what I’m looking forward to, getting our timing connection and probably learning off of him and maybe learning something of the offense and things like that."

That should help more after his rookie season as he heads into his second year, which many—including him—see as what should be a breakout year of sorts.

"[Kubiak] told me, you know, it’s my time," Latimer continued. "I feel like my biggest leap is going to be from Year 1 to Year 2 and he’s going to help make sure of that, so I’m excited about it. I’m just ready to do what I can to help this organization."

Pre Draft fluff!

I hope Latimer pays off, need to hit on 2nd round picks in the draft.

Hopefully he isn't a total failure like some of our 1st round offensive players have been. Even tho he's 2nd round.

Oh boy and by taking it to the next level we mean starting to finally challenge Caldwell for snaps. IMO he's the next om fantasy bust after "nasty Nate".

Irving had a steel rod in his leg and never had 100 tackles in a year in his entire life. He also runs in the 4.7's, not great.

I don't know about Cody he could of showed some passion last year and tried to learn Welkers role. Which I consider a open competition at this point. The kid could of pulled Welker and Manning to the side and tried to learn.

I laughed so hard when we drafted this kid last year. He is physically talented, but he had to go to the right offense to play right away. Let's see if he really understands what it takes to play at the NFL level and can work to do it. Man, I really hope so because this is another deep as hell WR class and if they do not take one this year it means we get nothing out of 2 of the best WR classes ever...

I wouldn't be surprised if the don't add another WR this year as they move forward. Someone in the fourth that needs time to develop. (Cough Cough Perriman)

not sure what that has to do with Latimer but Irving was a f'ing fail.

Latimer couldn't even beat out Andre freaking waste of reps Caldwell for playtime. Regardless of his familiarity with the playbook and timing with PFM if he had any capability he'd have been on that field last year.

0 hope for him going forward

Caldwell is a good special teams player, that's why he was the #4 receiver.

Also, while Lelie was somewhat of a disappointment, he did have 1000 yard season while averaging over 20 ypc, so he wasn't a complete bust.

Latimer is a big, physical WR who can block. In Kubiaks system blocking is important. He has as much chance of starting in Kubiak's system as anyone and he has the talent to be a true #1 WR.

The Broncos traded up for Latimer so they must really like his skill set...
