Jarvis Landry: Playing for New Orleans Saints 'would be like home'


The 2014 NFL Draft is loaded at the wide receiver position with six-seven possibly carrying first round grades, including former LSU Tigers Odell Beckham Jr.and Jarvis Landry who I thought carried himself exceptionally well when he met the media today.

The quote that stood out to me the most was when Landry said, he feared being average, and I would imagine countless NFL GM’s, coaches and talent evaluators loved hearing that from the ultra-competitive receiver.

Landry, who led LSU in receptions, yards and touchdowns this season didn’t stop there when he expressed his love for football and his desire to help win games in whatever capacity.

Whether it’s offense, defense or special teams, Landry just wants to win and with people obsessing over 40 times, hand size and 3-cone drill times, isn’t the most important measurable a person’s will to win?

Consider Landry a player with a first-round heart.

And for LSU fans who have grown accustomed to watching him the last three years, there may be a chance he continues to play his home football games in Louisiana. When asked what it would mean to play for the New Orleans Saints Landry said, “It would be like home.”
