Several Trade Downs Net Jarvis Landry

The Miami Dolphins worked the trade route in round two moving down not once but twice.  The Dolphins moved from the 50th pick in the draft to the 64th selection and gained and extra 4th and 5th round pick in the process.  When they came on the clock the Dolphins opted to go WR drafting LSU wide-out Jarvis Landry.

A smaller sized WR who doesn’t possess great speed, Landry has some of the best pure hands in this years draft.  One network compared him favorably to Anquan Boldin.  The Dolphins addition of Landry could spell the end of Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns both recovering from season ending injuries last season.

While Landry doesn’t possess the best speed or size, his ability to use his body to create separation is something the Dolphins sorely lacked after trading Davone Bess to Cleveland during last years draft.  The Dolphins will likely put Landry into the slot where he will face favorable coverage.

Landry is said to be a very solid practice player who works very hard to get better.
