Representatives from 19 NFL teams — including the general managers of the New York Jets (John Idzik) and San Diego Chargers (Tom Telesco), and a New England Patriots special teams coach — were present for Indiana’s pro day on Wednesday, when 18 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf. Cody Latimer, WR (6-foot-2 5/8, 215 pounds) — Due to a broken bone in his foot, Latimer was only able to run straight ahead and did not participate in any positional drills. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 and 4.45 seconds. He also had a 39-inch vertical jump.

That Helps No One: Geno Smith goes Broadway

A lot of things have been said and written about Geno Smith this season. Let me add two more that probably haven’t been used much — if at all. Fantasy stud. That was the case on Sunday when the Jets rookie quarterback threw for 214 yards with two passing touchdowns while rushing for another 48 yards and a score in New York’s win over the Cleveland Browns. In total, it adds up to 27.36 points — more than Cam Newton, Drew Brees and Adrian Peterson. Combined. It was also a season high for the former West Virginia star in an up-and-down season that has now seen him score better than 20 points twice in the past three weeks. All of that is wonderful news, […]
