I was with you until you said he wouldn't be drafted. The guy produced in the SEC without speed or size so he must have something. His toughness has been compared to Hines Ward and while that may be an exaggeration, this is a tough receiver with great hands. Wes Welker has terrible measurables - he's much smaller than Landry and ran a 4.65 at his pro day (a number Landry might get closer to) and he has been successful in this league. I'd be the first person to point out that a lot of Welker's success is due to his quarterbacks, but there is a place in this league for guys like Welker and possibly Landry. He'll be taken in the 4th round at the latest and could move up if he improves at his pro day.
To be fair, Landry would not have put up agility numbers like Welker if he did the 3 cone drill and 20 yard shuttle, but you would have said the same thing about Welker. Landry probably has better hands coming out and he's physically much bigger. His hands are also very big (10 1/4") and his drop rate was around 2%.
