Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Jarvis Landry, WR

USA TODAY Sports

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2014 draft.

Jarvis Landry

Wide Receiver

Height: 6'1"  Weight: 195 lbs

LSU

Strengths: Landry is a scrappy, tough receiver with excellent hands who fights for every reception and has an uncanny knack for catching contested balls in traffic.  He is a natural slot receiver with a compact frame who can absorb hits and even dish out a few of his own as a gunner on special teams.

Weaknesses: He only ran a 4.77-40 yard dash at the Combine, and while he is shifty in the open field, he won't outrun many NFL cornerbacks.  Landry has only average height and has a tough time separating from his defender, which is why he is often forced to catch contested balls.

Bottom Line: Landry has an opportunity to be a solid pro receiver because of his athleticism and tenacity on the field.  Without having top end speed, he is often able to make impressive plays out of nothing and win one-on-one battles with defensive backs.  He has the ability to be an outstanding red zone target and a quarterback's best friend as a possession receiver at the next level.

Projected Round: 2-3

Team He Fits Best On: Jaguars, Browns, Giants, Jets
