Cody Latimer ran a 4.39 40-time with a broken foot

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Rookie 2nd round draft pick apparently suffered a break in his foot back in January.

Via The Denver Post:

Latimer had surgery to repair the break on Jan. 19 and missed all but the bench press at the NFL scouting combine in late-February. However, at Indiana's Pro Day on March 26, Latimer was timed at 4.39 and 4.43 in the 40-yard dash. Latimer also had an impressive 39-inch vertical jump during his pro day workout.

Kyle Montgomery did some research and none of the major draft reporting outlets (CBS, NFL, Bleacher Report, SBNation) included this information in their scouting reports.

The Broncos have some history taking a shot on Wide Receivers with bum feet, albeit under a different regime.  Demaryius Thomas suffered a broken foot prior to the 2010 Combine and was unable to participate in drills.  Fellow rookie Eric Decker also came into the league on the heels of a Lisfranc injury that required surgery to repair.

While the injury might slow Latimer down until Training Camp, it should not affect his participation once two-a-days roll around.

All I want to know is, if he can run a 4.39-40 on a bum wheel, what is he capable of at full strength?

GO BRONCOS!!!
