What the pundits are saying about Harold Landry

Harold Landry is as close to a BC-related sure thing as there is in this year's NFL Draft. But where will he go and what do the pundits think of him?

In Mel Kiper's series of mock drafts, Landry keeps going late in the first round (his latest says Tennessee at No. 25) Kiper thinks Landry could have been a top 5 pick had he matched his production of 2016. His injury issues raise a few question marks.

NFL Draft Scout also still sees him as a first rounder: "2018 NFL Combine Winners: Harold Landry, DE, Boston College...After leading the FBS in sacks in 2016, Landry had a forgettable senior season due to injury. However, he helped remind scouts why he is deserving of first-round consideration. At 6-2 and 252 pounds with 33-inch arms, Landry ran a 4.64 40-yard dash with a 1.58 10-yard split, 6.88 three-cone and 36-inch vertical. Cut from the same cloth as Vic Beasley, Landry should hear his name called on night one of the draft. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com"

The NFL's own site is pretty critical of Landry's strength and technique but still sees him as a first rounder.

I don't think he would be a top 5 pick if he had the same production as last season. If the injury were the reason he dropped then he wouldn't be a consensus first round pick going into the draft. He would be a 2-3 Rd rounder.

I think the concern with the NFL is his mentality and whether or not he could have/ should have played through the injury at some point last season.

Remember Matt Ryan walked around in an aircast for 3 months prior to his senior year and then played his senior season with a broken foot? That was how he proved himself to the league before the draft and why he went #3.

Bill Parcells is a flaming idiot.
