The Palm Beach Post suggests second-round pick Jarvis Landry could earn playing time early in his rookie year.
Per beat writer Andrew Abramson, Landry is "progressing quickly," and "could be a real player from the start." Ryan Tannehill previously told Abramson Landry "has some of the strongest hands he's ever seen." Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace are entrenched on the outside, but there is opportunity for Landry in the slot. The slot position was heavily targeted by Ryan Tannehill in 2013. Jun 19 - 8:42 PM

Dolphins signed No. 63 overall pick WR Jarvis Landry to a four-year contract.

A 5-foot-11, 205-pound player out of LSU, Landry has seen time at all three receiver positions in OTAs. A Hines Ward-esque receiver, Landry will push Brandon Gibson for No. 3 duties, but will likely settle in as the Dolphins' fourth wideout in year one. He'll also contribute on special teams.

Dolphins second-round WR Jarvis Landry worked at all three receiver positions during rookie minicamp.

Per the Miami Herald, "no one should write off" Landry playing meaningful snaps this season. Landry has the ability to play both outside and in the slot and could push Brandon Gibson for the No. 3 receiver job. He'll likely contribute on special teams initially, but should see time in three- and four-wide sets.

The Miami Herald believes second-round pick Jarvis Landry will have to show special teams value to be active on game days in 2014.

In other words, the Herald doesn't consider Landry one of the Dolphins' top three wide receivers, and is penciling in Brandon Gibson as a Week 1 contributor despite his 2013 patellar tendon tear. We're a little more optimistic about Landry's outlook, and more skeptical about Gibson's. It would not be surprising if Landry overtook Gibson as the Fins' top slot receiver during his rookie year.

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.

LSU WR Jarvis Landry ran a pair of 4.58 forties at the Tigers' Pro Day on Wednesday.

Landry also dropped "three to four passes" in what is being described as a "rough" day. This all comes on the heels of a disastrous Combine that saw Landry run a painfully-slow 4.77 forty before dropping out of the drill altogether with a calf problem. He was also significantly shorter than LSU listed him in college. Landry is staring at a slide possibly into the 4-7 round range.
Apr 9 - 5:01 PM

LSU WR Jarvis Landry managed an initial 4.65 forty time at the NFL Combine before dropping out of testing with a calf injury.

Yet he was healthy enough to participate in pass-catching drills following the forty. Landry wound up running just the one forty time, and disappointed; Landy's "official" time was later announced at a molasses-like 4.77. It was a rough Combine for Landry, who drew comparisons to Hines Ward before the week but measured in shorter than expected with small arms and ran slow in a straight line. He's probably a third-rounder at best at this point.
Feb 23 - 12:38 PM

LSU WR Jarvis Landry measured 5-foot-11 1/2 and 205 pounds at Friday's Scouting Combine weigh-in.

It's a somewhat disappointing height, as Landry was listed at 6-foot-1 in college and we suspected he'd come very close to that, if not exceed it. So he's shorter than expected, by a decent margin. Landry does play bigger than his size, and scored ten touchdowns in a breakout junior year before entering the pros. Landry projects as an early to mid second-round pick.
