Chris Graythen

Another installment of Stampede Blue's "Who The Hell Will They Draft?" series.

Jarvis Landry - WR, LSU

Height: 5' 11 1/2"
Weight: 205 lbs
Arm Length: 31 3/4" 
Hand Size: 10 1/4"

Strengths: Jarvis Landry is a solid all-around wide receiver. He has fairly large hands and can pluck the ball out of the air with ease. He runs great routes, setting up defenders with strong cuts in and out of his breaks. Landry does not shy away from contact and fights for the 50/50 balls. He is a willing run blocker and will do whatever is asked of him to help the team win, as he covered kicks while at LSU.

Weaknesses: Landry had a terrible post-season in all of the pre-draft work outs. He is not a home-run threat and doe snot possess that extra gear many would like to see in a top quality wide receiver. He's not a tall wide out and does not have an explosive vertical to out jump corners. Landry could bulk up but the concern is his speed because he can take some time to get off the line of scrimmage, bigger corners could press and cause significant issues for him. He's also not an experienced starter.

Conclusions: Landry got a bad rap in the pre-draft workouts. He plays much faster than he runs. He is a quality teammate who is willing to drop down and make the necessary block or be a gunner on special teams. Similar to players like Eric Decker or Emmanuel Sanders, he'll never be a true number one wide receiver. Landry simply lacks the size and speed necessary to be dominant. However, his ability to know when to come back to the quarterback and work ethic in his route running could make him a top second wide receiver over time with the right quarterback.

Projected Range: Round 2 to Round 3
