There were 25 teams in attendance for former Indiana receiver Cody Latimer's 16-minute workout Friday, but one team in particular was especially interested and required a little bit more time with him.

San Francisco 49ers wide receivers coach John Morton spent 90 minutes with Latimer after his workout, going over the 49ers playbook with him, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

» Tracking teams' interest in top prospects

Latimer, who was recently announced as one of 30 prospects who will attend the NFL draft, has gained serious buzz in recent weeks as one of the event's fastest-rising prospects, and NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks recently tabbed him as one of his 10 draft sleepers to watch. Some analysts have even put Latimer in the discussion as a potential late-first-round pick.

That would put him in the mix for the 49ers, who have the No. 30 pick in the first round. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah has listed wide receiver as one of the team's biggest draft needs.

Considering the buzz around him, however, the question might be whether another receiver-needy team will snatch Latimer up before then. The Eagles, for example, have the No. 22 pick and had three representatives at Latimer's workout, including head coach Chip Kelly and wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell. Latimer spent 20 minutes running routes for the team after his workout.

Including the 49ers and Eagles, 10 teams sent their wide receiver coach to Latimer's workout Friday, according to Brandt, including the Colts, Steelers, Rams, Redskins, Lions, Ravens and Bears.
