LSU's Jarvis Landry Can Make Claim as Best WR in the Nation


LINK

Warning B/R (Actual Lead SEC Writer on Staff)

quote:

He leads the nation in receptions of 10 or more yards with 25—a whopping 73.5 percent of his receptions. He's also a major weapon in critical downs. He leads the SEC in third-down catches with 13 and yards with 269.


quote:

But it isn't just the numbers that makes Landry so impressive, it's the fact that he's doing it with a teammate—fellow junior Odell Beckham, Jr.—also having a stellar season. Beckham is fourth in the SEC with 507 receiving yards, one spot behind Landry.

All of this while playing in a pro-style offense that is still predicated on establishing the run behind LSU's seemingly endless stable of running backs.

Just how good is Landry? B/R's own Matt Miller projects him as a possible first-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft if he decides to come out.

"He's shown the concentration to track the ball on deep routes and fight through traffic for the ball underneath," Miller wrote in his Week 5 stock report. "Landry has speed and toughness, making him an A.J. Green-style dual-threat receiver.".


Right now I see 2nd round but he could definitely be first round if they are looking for more physicality and sure hands in their players on the most critical of downs.

He's durable, never missed a game or longer than a few plays do to being shaken up. Excellent blocker and snatches the ball out the air. He's also elusive if you guys have seen him break a few ankles this year to get more yardage. Body control and being absolutely fearless are major factors that could make him a top 3 WR taken.

If Juice can't make a claim, there isn't anyone in CFB that can IMO.

I want him playing with Brees as 32nd pick of first round

I want to see Juice as a slot receiver in a high powered offense like the Saints, Broncos or Pats.

I just hope he doesn't get stuck in Jacksonville or Oakland where promising careers go to die (a la Justin Blackmon).

That said, I could see Belichick going after him for his glue-like hands, especially since Amendola is a gigantic pussy that is apparently made of glass.

Yeah he is going to be a solid player at the next level. He's just that good.

Look I think Jarvis is awesome, but this is not a good comparison.

He blocks down field very well...something that won't be overlooked in draft analysis.

He is the best!!!! I never thought I would see anyone better than Eddie Kennison. Landry is at that level. He just doesn't return punts but he has better hands than OBJ and he is surprisingly fast. He's also fiery too.

Better than Kennison? Did you watch his receiving at LSU? Good returner; yes. I never thought he would do what he did and last as long as he did in the NFL from what he showed at LSU. Offense may not have been condusive for passing, either.

I love Landry. I think he's the best overall player on this LSU team. However, he's not AJ Green, which is ok, not many people are. I dont see how in the hell you can even make that claim. AJ Green is 6'4" and they have completely different skill sets. Landry really reminds me of Steve Smith of Carolina. He's got the toughness, speed, attitude, RAC ability, leaping ability, swagger, etc. How can you get paid to write about football and be so far off on your judgement?

If they both hit 1000 yards which I expect, I don't see either of them escaping the first half of the 2nd round.

Yah, I love Landry as well but Idk how anyone can compare him to AJ Green. Just completely different kinds of WR... I like the Steve smith comparison, I also like Hines ward.

Jarvis has the natural hands and freakish ability to make plays on hard to catch balls of AJ Green, but other than that, I dont see a comparison Green (not a bad thing). Steve Smith is a good comparison but to me, Jarvis is more sure handed than Smith.
