> No.16 in Ourlads' Top 50 rankings:
Plays both in a two- and three-point stance on the edge of the defense. Rarely drops into coverage but has enough athleticism to project to short-zone flat coverage. Plays very quick at the snap with a good motor. Hustles in pursuit and is a good chase player. Excellent use of hands to stun and keep blockers off him. Good shed ability, disengages quickly and works to the ball. Will get upright at times but normally plays at a good pad level maintaining leverage on the blocker and the ball. Plays the run well with good agility on the edge and the ability to make plays in space. Tackles well. Powerful at the point of attack. Holds up against strong blockers with good leg bend. Productive pass rusher with a variety of moves. Nonstop hustle helps his cause as he will make plays with second effort as the quarterback steps up or scrambles.2017 Review
Finished career No.2 on BC’s all-time list with 26 sacks and 47 ½ tackles for loss, despite losing final five games of college career to an ankle injury. Tallied 8 ½ TFLs and five sacks as a senior, capped by a three-sack performance vs. Virginia Tech. That made Landry just the third FBS player since 2014 to register a trio of three-sack outings in his career – including Myles Garrett, who the Browns took No.1 overall last year. Was a Ted Hendricks Award finalist and second-team All-American (AP, Camp) in 2016 after leading the nation with 16 ½ sacks and seven forced fumbles. The 16 ½ sacks is a single-season best at BC, as was his 22 TFLs that year. Forced a fumble in four of the Eagles’ first six games of 2016.
