Dolphins selected LSU WR Jarvis Landry with the No. 63 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Landry (5-foot-11 1/2, 205) lived in Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham's shadow before busting out as a 20-year-old junior with a team-best 77-1,193-15.5-10 stat line. He earned second-team All-SEC honors and entered the draft. Landry's stock slipped at the Combine with a 4.77 forty and 28 1/2-inch vertical, also measuring in nearly two inches shorter than his 6-foot-1 college listing. Separation isn't Landry's game, however, as he plays like Hines Ward or a smaller Anquan Boldin. He wins with toughness, huge hands (10 1/4"), and crisp routes. Landry profiles as a chain mover and red-zone weapon in the NFL. He will make incumbent slot receiver Brandon Gibson expendable sooner rather than later. May 9 - 9:28 PM

Panthers director of college scouting Don Gregory says "capable" starting WRs could be available as late as the fourth round next month.

"If you do your homework you can find that type of guy in the fourth round," said Gregory. Senior Bowl director Phil Savage, the former Browns' GM, believes the 2014 class could rival the greatest WR drafts in history. "Ten years from now, when we add up the production of this entire class, I would expect the numbers would be very strong," Savage said. "Are there a couple Hall of Famers in here? Perhaps. They'll certainly get that chance because the ball is in the air." We also love this year's WR class. There are numerous examples of good WRs that could be available in Round 4, but our favorite might be LSU WR Jarvis Landry. If he reaches Day 3, Landry is a steal.

ESPN's Todd McShay still believes LSU WR Jarvis Landry is worth a Day 2 pick.

The analyst notes that Jones is undersized and runs a poor 40-yard dash, but won't be dissuaded from him as a prospect. Why? "Because he is one of the best pure football players in this class," McShay wrote. "First off, his ball skills are second to none in the 2014 class of receivers -- and if you don't trust my eyes on that, there are plenty of numbers that back that assertion up. Landry has excellent focus and natural hand-eye coordination, and very good body control to adjust. Landry does an excellent job of competing for balls in traffic and has the strong hands to secure passes. He makes tough catches over his head look easy. He's also the toughest receiver in the 2014 class, with no fear of going over the middle, and a physical, competitive and effective blocker." McShay concludes: "I love the way this guy plays the game." Landry might drop into Day 3, and we're in agreement that he'd be a steal.

LSU WR Jarvis Landry will visit the Jets on Monday.

Landry will be available perhaps into Day 3, but he might figure into the Jets' plans at that point. If New York decides to take a corner in Round 1 over a WR, the team may decide to wait on a WR. Because this WR class is so deep, a good player that tested poorly like Landry can be had in Round 4. We think Landry has big steal potential.

The Panthers are working out LSU WRs Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr., according to David Newton.

Receivers coach Ricky Proehl is reportedly one of the Panthers' staffers on site. OBJ will not be available at pick No. 28, and it is doubtful the Panthers trade up for his services. Landry is an option on the second day, however, and operates best in the slot by winning in contested situations or separating with little wasted movement.

LSU WR Jarvis Landry ran a pair of 4.58 forties at his pro day on Wednesday.

Not only that, but he dropped "three to four" passes. "Rough day overall," noted The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. If you're forcing yourself to think positively, Landry improved greatly upon his dreadful 4.77 forty time at the combine. Landry (5-foot-11 1/2, 205 pounds, 10 1/4 inch hands and 31 and 3/4 inch arms) is in store for a free fall in May's draft, perhaps into Day 3. Rotoworld's Josh Norris sees a steal.
Apr 10 - 8:20 PM

Scouts soured a bit on LSU WR Jarvis Landry after his official 4.77 forty time at the NFL Combine, according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

It wasn't just the slow forty time, as Landry "exhibited minimal explosiveness while running routes in positional drills." Landry (5-foot-11 1/2, 205 pounds, 10 1/4 inch hands and 31 and 3/4 inch arms) wasn't expected to test well, so we, for one, have forgiven his rough week. Landry is an extremely sturdy prospect with sticky hands. Rotoworld's Josh Norris warns NFL evaluators not to overreact to Landry's testing numbers, as they did with Andre Ellington. We think Landry has big "steal" potential.

When asked about WRs who project best to the slot, NFL Films' Greg Cosell said he believes LSU's Jarvis Landry will absolutely be a terrific player in the NFL.

"And I think the slot is where he will do most of his work," Cosell added. The respected NFL analyst then suggested names like Brandin Cooks and Josh Huff of Oregon. "There's plenty of guys in this draft that can fill that role." Our own Josh Norris thinks Landry could be this year's example of Andre Ellington, in terms of evaluators freaking out about Combine times and results while overlooking a quality player.

LSU WR Jarvis Landry posted an official 4.77 forty time at the NFL Combine before dropping out with a calf injury.

It was the worst forty time amongst receivers, and he also logged the second-worst vertical jump (28.5") amongst prospects at his position. Landry's unofficial forty time of 4.65 seconds wasn't much better. Landry (5-foot-11 1/2, 205 pounds, 10 1/4 inch hands and 31 and 3/4 inch arms) showed horribly today, but he wasn't expected to test well. He's an extremely sturdy prospect with sticky hands. We expect him to play in the pros for a long time, regardless of where he ends up going in the draft process. Landry consistently wins at the catch point in contested situations.

LSU WR Jarvis Landry measured in at 5-foot-11 and 1/2 inches and 205 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Landry also has 10 and 1/4 inch hands and 31 and 3/4 inch arms. He and Odell Beckham Jr. made up the best receiving duo in college football and both win at the catch point in contested situations.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes that LSU junior WR Jarvis Landry is more pro-ready than Odell Beckham Jr.

"Working mainly from the slot, he is an instinctive route-runner and does a nice job of reading coverages on the fly," wrote Weidl. "While he lacks elite quickness and top-end speed, Landry makes up for it with polished routes, and he transitions well out of cuts. Finally, Landry has one of the more natural sets of hands in this class and is fearless working in traffic down the middle of the field." Landry was one of the best receivers in the country at winning in contested situations last season.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports LSU junior WRs Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. will enter the draft.

"Landry is expected to announce his pro intentions within the next 24 hours," Getlin writes, while Beckham Jr. started interviewing agents recently. The duo are productive and talented, and despite neither possessing a huge frame both do very well at the catch point in contested situations.
Jan 5 - 5:19 PM

Five LSU prospects are leaning towards entering the draft, including WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, DTs Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson and T La'El Collins, according to Rand Getlin.

Getlin adds Ferguson, Johnson, Landry, Beckham and Collins have all held meetings with potential representatives. There is an outside chance Landry does return, the report states. We would add redshirt sophomore RB Jeremy Hill to the list of possible declarations.

LSU junior WR Jarvis Landry caught eight passes for 113 yards in a 31-27 win over Arkansas.

Landry had to play much of the game without his counterpart in Odell Beckham Jr., but stepped up to fill the clear No. 1 receiving role. He is one of the best receivers in the country at winning in contested situations, and showed as much on a crossing route while catching a pass around a defender that had an advantage in positioning.

LSU junior WR Jarvis Landry caught four passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 34-10 win over Texas A&M.

Landry is one of the top receiving targets in the country and is not afraid to go over the middle. We love how he wins in contested situations thanks to strong hands. Expect Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. to both declare for May's draft.
