Coming out of Indiana, Latimer wasn’t the most sought-after prospect in the draft. Because the 22-year-old didn’t play at a college powerhouse and dealt with a foot injury heading into the draft process, many expected him to be selected in the fourth or fifth round.
Latimer’s agent, Ed Wasielewski, turned to Don Povia and the Transition Sports & Entertainment team to help generate exposure for the incoming rookie receiver prior to the draft.
“We wanted to find a way to put Latimer on the radar in such a receiver-heavy draft,” Povia told me. “We thought that he was a real sleeper in the draft, and we believed that the film showed that.”
