New York Giants: Top News 5/31 – Cody Latimer prepping for breakout season

Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

The New York Giants will head into training camp with the top two receivers on the team solidified, however, the No. 3 spot is up for grabs.

Options like Corey Coleman, Cody Latimer, and Russell Shepard all present forms of quality in their own specific ways. Coleman is a former first-round pick with solid hands, Latimer is a speedy wideout that can get behind the defense, and Shepard is a bigger body that can bring in contested balls.

I believe that Latimer will be the player to earn the No. 3 receiver spot behind Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate. The former Bronco had his second-best season to date last year, racking up 190 yards and a score over just six games. Latimer succumbed to injury in 2018, limiting his production on the field, but with a full bill of health, he is looking to finally break out in 2019.

A 68.8% catch rate and17.3 yards-per-reception total presents optimism for the 26-year-old pass catcher. I wouldn’t necessarily rule out Coleman to earn the starting job, but I imagine Latimer is better equipped considering his resume and experience.

Head coach Pat Shurmur will surely look to utilize Latimer in the long-game as his speed is an asset that can tantalize defenses at times.
