Thread: Hope the Steelers don't get stuck on a big WR-Jarvis Landry

    Hope the Steelers don't get stuck on a big WR-Jarvis Landry

    Wow, is this guy a football player. He is being compared to Hines Ward but honestly this guy is a better receiver than Ward coming out of college. He catches everything thrown to him...plays like a big man...with big man ball skills even though he isn't a big guy. Physical, elite ball skills, uses every inch the good Lord gave him...color me impressed. If he is there in the third, how can the Steelers pass on a guy this good? I don't think they can.

    I like Beckham quite a bit more. LSU WRs have been massively disappointing the last few years....bowe and randle are 2 out of about 6 pretty high draft picks that have succeeded

    Hes a lot like Cotchery imo

    Beckham is faster no doubt. But, even some scouts are saying he is a better pro prospect than Beckham. I'm not a fan of judging a talent by previous talent of the school. I'm not sure how relevant it is to be honest with you. This guy produced in the toughest conference in college.

    Yeah, but you'd have to take Beckham in the first. Landry is much better value, particularly if you could land him right where we got Ward once upon a time...with 3rd round supplemental pick.

    He kind of reminds me of Early Doucet, who drew some similar comparisons irrc.

    Beckham is smoother, loses very little in and out of his cuts (like brown pretty much)

    I like Jarvis Landry. But, he is no game changer. He can be a very good #2 receiver. He has good strength/bulk, but he doesn't fit the bill of a big (tall receiver). As many have said, he'd be a ward, cotchery type receiver.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    That play would definitely confuse the hell out of me.
