Cody Latimer could be something special.
We’ve seen glimpses of what the Denver Broncos second-round draft pick out of Indiana can do when he accelerated, fought through a defensive back and dove to make a touchdown catch against the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday.
But this catch puts that one to shame.
On Wednesday, Brock Osweiler threw a football to Latimer in the back of the end zone. The ball was high and seemed to be floating out of play until Latimer leapt into the thin air and snatched the pigskin with one hand.
Then, despite having a Houston Texans cornerback covering him, the rookie receiver had the presence of mind to secure the football and get both feet in bounds.
If this were a real game, the catch would have been ruled a touchdown.
Wow! Looks like Latimer can contribute immediately. He should be fun to watch this season.
Shoutout to Sigmund Bloom for tweeting out this video last night!
