Landry needs his own thread, clearly. Tough as nails, outstanding route runner and a very enthusiastic blocker. He fits this team's offense and style perfectly. If you've read my draft musings, you know how much emphasis I put on a guy's viability within the 49ers system. Landry is a great fit, hard worker, great teammate by all accounts, busts his ass out on the field, a very willing blocker, not flashy, just consistent, works hard, plays smart. I see him projecting out as a very good #2 WR in the NFL, similar to Boldin in terms of his demeanor and hard-nosed style of play, not as big physically, but a fearless guy who simply makes plays for you.
He plays with an edge and makes some flat-out ridiculous, Brandon Lloyd type circus catches routinely. He's not as fast or as explosive as his teammate Beckham but he's solid like a rock, just a consistent playmaker, a guy who rarely let's the ball get to his body, he snatches it out of the air and is a threat to make huge gains after the catch. He's one of those guys that QB's absolutely love, a highly dependable target, you put the ball in his general vicinity, he'll haul it in.
Personally, I'd be happy if the 49ers traded down in the 1st, up in the 2nd and took both Landry and Beckham. Toughness, receiving ability and speed, all of this to go along with Patton and Crabtree long-term.
