Jarvis Landry-WR-LSU

Landry doesn't have amazing size at only 6-0, but the way he plays the game leads me to believe he is going to develop into a starting receiver in the NFL.

He reminds me of Victor Cruz.
Landry looks like he could replace Boldin's skillset perfectly. Kap would probably trust him too.

Two receivers who are able to push Patton and, within a year, replace Crabtree and Boldin if necessary! Boldin might be replaced this off season, so I hope Patton is ready. I don't mind them looking at FAs but that's really not helped much in the past and I don't see this offensive scheme attracting WRs. Luckily, there are probably more than ten really decent receivers in this draft and the 9ers will be able to draft two of them if they so desire.

Much like we mentioned in the WR thread I've pretty much settled on Landry as a one of the WRs we get. I have concerns about Boldin actually coming back but on top of that he may only have 1-2 years left. Crabtree is in the final year of his deal as well. We need to cover our bases and get a receiver of their caliber in the pipeline that could take over one of the starting spots in 2015 if need be.

Patton has future as a starter but I want the 9ers to hedge their bets and bet big this year. Land a player like Landry or Moncrief as my 2nd choice in this mold, then get a legitimate deep threat to compliment these physical players.

I would love to see Patton, Landry, Crabtree, and Boldin working some DBs nest season. Throw in his teammate (Beckam) or another speed guy and we can go five wide.

There's no way we take Vernon off the field for a 5-wide set.

God I want him in red and gold!
I like him a lot, reminds me of Crabs a little bit. He's pretty physical, good route runner, finds the holes in zones really really well. Just one of those guys who often seems to find himself open and extends drives time and time again. If we do go Landry over a real big bodied wideout then we need a burner. Vernon is strong in the redzone and although Boldin and Crabs aren't huge guys they are both physical wideouts and have really good hands so I don't see the redzone as a huge issue. However, if we do add a guy like Landry who is a possession guy, more in the mold of what we already have, we still need that guy who will keep defenses honest. Patton also has some similar traits. All of these guys are around 6'0-6'1, 210+ pounds and could make for a smoother transition if Crabs walks after next season.

Totally forgot about Vernon in my excitement over that lineup. I'd still have a speed guy in there which means either Patton, Crabtree, or Boldin will have to sit. This is a very good problem to have.

Ok, I am sold after seeing his highlight video. What I like best is that he jumps in the air to fight with the CB to get the ball, instead of standing there watching the DB jump and intercept it while he continues his route.
Really good highlight catches for Landry. Smaller size receiver but plays big. I'm more impressed with Landry using his hands to beat press coverage from a few glimpses of him off the line.

This kid has my interest. Guy makes every catch imaginable.
Best hands in the draft. Landry has Boldin written all over him. His measurables don't thrust him high in the first, but he's probably the best all-around pass catcher in the draft. I'm not so sure Landry will still be around when we pick.

If he slips to the 2nd, someone is going to get a massive steal.
