05/12/2014 - LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry, the Dolphins' second-round pick, played opposite Odell Beckham, Jr., who went to the New York Giants with the No. 12 pick.

05/08/2014 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 68/12. *Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU, 6-0, 205, 4.77, 2-3...Along with Clemson's Sammy Watkins, was only other high school five-star receiver in this draft, so his talents have been known for a while. Arrives in draft with ample experience running pro-style routes. He is probably a more reliable go-to receiver than higher ranked teammate Odell Beckham, although the latter is more of a home-run threat. He is faster than his unfair 40-yard time of 4.77 at combine, where he ran with bad hamstring. He is more of a 4.60. Frankly: Former prep basketball star with huge, strong hands and a tough-guy attitude that should make him a great target in a West Coast offense, and pretty effective in any scheme. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com

05/06/2014 - Dane Brugler's 2014 NFL Draft Final Top-50: 42. Jarvis Landry WR, LSU (5-11, 205, 4.77, JR)...A pair of the strongest hands in the draft, Landry has big mitts to secure grabs and make the tough catches look easy. He's not an elite size/speed athlete, which was evident at the Combine, but he is a disciplined route runner with above average body control, ballskills and competitiveness. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/10/2014 - No one had to tell Jarvis Landry he probably shouldn't have run the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine workouts in late February. Despite being bothered by a tight hamstring, the former LSU wide receiver's competitiveness took over and he struggled to finish in 4.77 seconds - the slowest among 48 wideouts there. Incredibly, that wasn't the bad part. Far worse was having to wait 45 excruciating days until LSU's pro day to get a chance to do something about it. That day finally came Wednesday, and Landry did his best to redeem himself and prove he's worthy of being an early round pick in the May 8-10 NFL draft despite everything he's heard and read over the past 61/2 weeks.

"I was excited because I felt like it was a long process ... almost a month and a half without being able to perform in front of scouts," said the former Lutcher High School star, who admitted that he needed to silence the critics. "I kind of felt bitter about it. "At the same time, I knew I had to get better and not let that take me down. I had to recover from an injury and get stronger so I could get faster and be able to perform like I did today." On Wednesday, he was ready to go. He did the shuttle, three-cone drills and the broad jump and vertical jump - and, of course, the 40-yard dash that raised some eyebrows at the combine. LSU strength coach Tommy Moffitt clocked Landry on his two runs Wednesday at 4.58 seconds, although Landry said he understood his time to be in the low 4.5-second range. Whatever it was, it wasn't a 4.77. "I'm ecstatic about that, just being able to show my straight-line speed and show the drastic improvement in bouncing back from an injury and being able to come out here and run well," a beaming Landry said. - Sheldon Mickles, The New Orleans Advocate

04/09/2014 - 2014 Pro Days: LSU's Zach Mettenberger rusty but recovering...Wideout Jarvis Landry helped his cause early by shaving over two-tenths of a second off of his Combine 40-yard dash time with an unofficial 4.58-second showing. Unfortunately, he followed this up with several uncharacteristic drops during the positional workout. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

02/20/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 55. *Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU, 6-0, 195, 4.49, 2...Fearless receiver with strong hands and not an easy target to tackle after the catch. Career included 137 catches for 1,809 yards and 15 touchdowns. Has adequate speed, but lacks burst to cause quick separation. Reminds NFLDraftScout's Dane Brugler of Denver's Eric Decker. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

01/01/2014 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: LSU WR Jarvis Landry. The Tigers talented receiving corps is going to have to help Jennings out and who better than Landry, who has been the top target on underneath routes. His ability to get open on quick patterns will lessen the need for Jennings to be patient, stand in against a rush and be accurate downfield. Landry also is one of the key reasons that LSU has been one of the best teams in the country at converting third downs (56 percent). - The Sports Xchange

12/11/2013 - 2013 ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): WR - Jarvis Landry, LSU...Landry leads the Tigers with 75 receptions for 1,172 yards and 10 touchdowns. He proved to arguably be the nation's top wide receiver on third down, ranking No. 1 nationally with 453 yards, six touchdowns, 15 catches of 15-plus yards and six catches of 25-plus yards on third down this season. - LSU football

12/11/2013 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM: WR - Jarvis Landry, LSU, 6-1, 195, Jr,...Landry joined with Beckham Jr. to become the first receiving duo in school history and only the third in SEC history to record 1,000-plus receiving yards in the same season. Landry led the Tigers with 75 receptions for 1,172 yards and 10 touchdowns, and he provided clutch catches all season. Landry ranked No. 1 nationally with 453 yards, six touchdowns, 15 catches of 15-plus yards and six catches of 25-plus yards on third downs this season, and he ranked second nationally with 24 third-down catches that resulted in a first down. - LSU football

11/29/2013 - NFL DRAFT WEEK 13 STOCK REPORT, NFL PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES: WR Jarvis Landry, LSU...Yes, fellow LSU receiver Odell Beckham is deserving of this spot too, but Landry's two-touchdown performance against Texas A&M on Saturday gives him the nod. Landry finished the game with four catches for 87 yards and a pair of scores, giving him 10 touchdowns on the season, which ranks second in the SEC (behind only Mike Evans, who has 12 receiving scores). He does a nice job attacking soft zones in coverage before showing his numbers to the quarterback. Landry has big, soft hands and with fluid body control and coordination to make it look easy plucking the ball out the air.

He is tough and brave in tight coverage and routinely shows the ability to win in contested situations. While Beckham is probably more of a home run threat, Landry is the better pro prospect because of his large, reliable hands and natural build and athleticism to do something with the catch. He's among a group of a handful of underclassmen receivers who will receive top-40 consideration if they declare for the 2014 NFL Draft. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

11/24/2013 - Zach Mettenberger threw two touchdown passes to Jarvis Landry and No. 22 LSU used a powerful stable of running backs and an aroused defense to suffocate Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel's point-a-minute offense in a 34-10 rout of No. 10 Texas A&M on Saturday at Tiger Stadium. Mettenberger completed 11-of-20 passes for 193 yards and threw scoring strikes of 40 and 10 to Landry, and LSU rolled up 517 yards in total offense, including 325 on the ground. Terrence Magee had 149 yards on 13 carries, including a one-yard scoring dive in the first quarter that he set up with a 65-yard burst down the left sidelines.

In controlling the ball for 40:19, LSU converted on 11-of-17 third downs, flashing their status as the best third-down team in the country. The Tigers (8-3, 4-3 in the SEC) scored on six of seven possessions in a stretch that started late in the first quarter. Kenny Hilliard had a two-yard touchdown run and Colby Delahoussaye added field goals of 21 and 36 yards in the second half for LSU. Perhaps even more impressive was the Tigers' defensive effort. Texas A&M (8-3, 4-3) had averaged 49.2 points and 578 yards per game, but Manziel, who had the worst game of his career last season in a loss to LSU, once again looked mortal against the Tigers. - The Sports Xchange

11/11/2013 - 2014 NFL Draft: Alabama's McCarron outduels LSU's Mettenberger...While Beckham is the big play specialist, Landry is the more polished route-runner and reliable receiver. One relatively simple play from Landry demonstrated his reliability. Dragging across the middle, he reached out to pluck a slightly-underthrown ball from Mettenberger, paused to allow linebacker Trey DePriest to slip past him and accelerated to gain a first down late in the third quarter. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/31/2013 - Scouting the LSU passing game: QB Zach Mettenberger was inconsistent and turnover-prone early last season, but a less-than-bold passing game and a large number of dropped passes didn't help him. Cameron plans to look for more downfield opportunities and the tight ends will be more than an afterthought in the passing game. The top two receivers -- Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. -- return from last season and LSU has a good blend of experience -- seniors Kadron Boone and James Wright -- and young talent -- Travin Dural, Kevin Spears and John Diarse. - The Sports Xchange

08/21/2013 - OTHER LSU PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: WR Jarvis Landry (6-0, 195, 4.49)*...Landry was perhaps the biggest recipient of Mettenberger's improvement over the second half of the 2012 season, emerging as LSU's most dependable receiver. The former 5-star recruit led the Tigers with 56 catches and five touchdowns last season, finishing second to Beckham with 573 receiving yards. Landry is a smooth athlete who can make the dazzling catch but needs to show better consistency to warrant early NFL consideration. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/25/2013 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-SEC THIRD TEAM (MEDIA): WR - Jarvis Landry, LSU (19)...Played in 13 games with one start in 2012 ... Led team in both receptions (56) and TD receptions (5) ... Finished with 573 receiving yards, which ranked No. 2 on the team ... Ranked No. 8 in the SEC in receptions per game at 4.3. - LSU football
