2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jarvis Landry, WR , LSU

Landry stepped up in his junior year to be more productive for the Tigers. For a team typically known for its run-first mentality, Landry vastly improved to become a more well-rounded receiver.

Shorter than ideal and also lacks the desirable speed and agility that typically comes with undersized receivers. Good upper body strength and can hold his own as a blocker on the edge. Really good body control when route-running. Quickly gets in and out of his breaks. Lacks the speed to take off the top of defenses. Ran very poorly at the combine with a 4.77 40 yard dash.

Very willing to run the tough routes over the middle of the field. Would make an ideal No. 2 receiver, which limits how early he'll probably go in the draft. Very average athleticism for his size. Dependable hands. Catches everything. Reminds me of Green Bay's WR Jarrett Boykin.

Landry's stock has increased dramatically and projects as a second round option in the 2014 NFL Draft.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Probably won't make an instant impact. Will need a year unless he lands on a team paper-thin at WR. Third rounder in dynasty rookie drafts.

Prediction: 3rd Round

I'll go same range for this guy that I went for Demarcus Lawrence, late 3rd. In other years with a WR crop not as deep, I'd view him as a late 2nd or early 3rd round pick.
I think he'd be a very nice value late in the 3rd.
