Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named Third Team All-ACC as a senior after making 38 tackles (8.5 for loss) with five sacks despite missing four games with an ankle injury. Earned Second Team All-America honors in 2016 and led the nation with 16.5 sacks, adding 51 tackles (22 for loss) and an FBS-best seven forced fumbles. Named Honorable Mention All-ACC after posting 60 tackles (15.5 for loss), 4.5 sacks and three forced fumbles as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Explosive pass rusher with potential in a variety of schemes. Rarely off his feet and plays with balance and body control. Fires off the snap and displays a tremendous first step. Quickly changes direction and alters his angle of attack without losing momentum. Plays with proper pad level, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and keeps his feet moving. Focused on by opponents but causes disruption. Fast laterally and in pursuit, easily bends off the edge and shows great speed up the field.
Neg: 
Easily blocked from the action and sealed from plays. Controlled by opposing running backs on occasion. Not a strong open-field tackler.
Analysis: 
Landry was a disruptive force at Boston College for much of the past two seasons and altered the momentum of games with his ability to force the action. He needs to improve his playing strength and add bulk if possible but offers possibilities as a one-gap defensive end or outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.
