Latimer Looks the Part on First Day

Posted May 10, 2014

New Broncos receiver Cody Latimer took an orange-themed outfit in his bag to the Draft on a whim, and it worked out perfectly when he was picked by Denver.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- John Elway and Co. can only hope second-round pick Cody Latimer is as prepared for his first day on the field as he was for his first day off the field in Denver.

Latimer dusted off most of his senior prom outfit -- an orange shirt, white pants and bright orange dress shoes -- and took it with him to the green room at the 2014 NFL Draft in New York. After getting picked Friday night and flying to Denver this morning, Latimer showed up at Dove Valley for the first time sporting the rather appropriate attire.

"If there was ever a guy that was meant to be a Bronco, it was Cody," Elway said with a laugh as he introduced the former Indiana wide receiver to the press.

"There was just something that really told me to bring it and I took it to New York with me and then it just happened to work out perfectly," Latimer said.

Too bad he left the final piece of the look at home.

"It actually has a white vest, but I wasn't going to be too dressy," Latimer said, smiling. "I had to be comfortable today."
