Scouting Report
Projected to be drafted in the second or third round after a poor showing at the NFL combine, Landry's smaller frame was not a detriment to his play for LSU in the SEC but may prove something to overcome in the bigger and faster NFL. Landry is coming off his most productive college season as a junior, finishing with 77 receptions for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns. His average of 15.5 yards per catch was the third-best in school history for receivers with at least 75 catches in a season. After starting once in each of the previous two seasons, he earned 10 starts in 2013 and played in all 13 games. Landry joined with quarterback Zach Mettenberger, running back Jeremy Hill and fellow wideout Odell Beckham Jr., to form the only group in SEC history with a 3,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers. He finished ranked 10th in LSU history with 137 career receptions. Landry had five 100-yard games in 2013, including a career-best 156 on 10 catches against Georgia. He appears primed for duty as a No. 3 option or slot receiver in the NFL, and he had 28 of his 77 catches and six of his 10 touchdown receptions last season on third down. His six third-down catches of 25 yards or more led the nation and his 15 receptions of at least 15 yards were second. Landry, who made a slew of acrobatic catches in clutch situations in 2013, could also give an NFL team a boost on specials teams, where he shined as a freshman.
