Analysis:

Landry is a tough, instinticve pass catcher who has already maximized his talent. He is a very limited athlete who won’t be able to create separation at the next level. He might still be able to produce in some way due to his incredibly reliable hands. Probably one of the most natural pass catchers in this draft. If he had any athletic ability he would be very attractive to teams looking for a tough, physical slot receiver. As it is he will be a very productive special teams player and a role player on offense.
