Latimer on Manning: 'I Want to Know What He Knows'

Posted May 10, 2014

New Broncos receiver Cody Latimer said he's excited to learn from Peyton Manning.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Every receiver who could be drafted this year knows about Peyton Manning's intense attention to detail. There's intense study, and then there's the level at which Manning operates.

By the time Cody Latimer made his debut at Indiana University, Manning had already played his last game as a Colt. But the quarterback's reputation is so well-known that Latimer already knew what to expect, even though he didn't have a chance to watch him every Sunday.

"He's Peyton Manning, you hear all kinds of things about him and see him all over the place, making plays and I mean, I've got a pretty good idea of him," he said.

So Latimer's eyes and ears are open to what awaits.

"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."

Latimer believes his relatively brief background in football will help him, since he had to play catch-up late in high school and college after devoting his free time to basketball, a sport in which he was good enough to earn some low-major Division I scholarship offers.

"I had no choice but to work every day and I was a raw receiver," he said. "I wasn't used to football, so I had to get used to it, every day bring the same mentality. So, now that I'm here, I've just got to take it to the next level and no stopping."

And with Manning, that next level could be higher than he ever thought possible.
