05/12/2014 - At least Cody Latimer joins the Broncos with his eyes wide open. The Broncos' second-round pick knows that being a potential target of the uber-studious Peyton Manning means reaching the level of diligence and attention to detail that few receivers have to meet. "He demands a lot," Latimer said. "He takes control of his team, he wants to win. He wants his guys to know what they're doing obviously so he can trust you, so he knows wherever he puts the ball that you're going to be at the spot to get it. "I plan on coming here and living under him. I'm going to spend every day, I want to make sure I know what he knows. He's going to help me become a better receiver and I'm going to do what I can to help this organization win."

Denver traded up with the 49ers to get Latimer, moving up seven spots from the No. 63 slot to nab him. "We were waiting and trying to be patient with it and see how many guys were going to get down to us. The players that we wanted, once they started disappearing, that's when we decided we wanted to move up," said general manager John Elway. - The Sports Xchange
