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.

    I mean thats great but where is the linebacker help. Or secondary help. Or another TE. The first pick was aweful enough…. Not to happy with this draft so far

  • Johnny

    Best pick of our draft… We got the 10th and 12th ranked tackles in which we reached for both and even traded up to reach for a developmental Tackle…
    But other then that???
    I like Landry… Don’t like his size.. Another short WR for RT17… But he’s physical and scrappy.. And I like that..

    • Johnny

      btw.. Why get rid off Binns.. He looked great last preseason and he will do it again… Gibson???i don’t care for him..
      But why Binns??? He’s getting the minimum… Gibson is the one getting paid…

      • Johnny

        Oh yeh… FIRE HICKEY!!!

  • Johnny

    This is my favorite pick… Just look at the 2 amazing catches vs. Arkansas..

  • Johnny

    Please…. Watch those 2 crazy, amazing catches vs Arkansas…. I really like this kid… Don’t like his size… But love his scrappiness… Oh yeh.. And probably the best hands out of all the WRs in this draft.. Guy got 2 Mitts as hands..
