    He's a solid prospect. Of the players we have a legitimate chance at getting I would be bummed if we missed out an an 'Ed Reed-Like' FS.

    Ed Reed- 5'11" 200lbs. ????40-time??
    Laron Landry 6'0.5" 212 lbs. 4.35 40-dash

    “In the NFL right now there’s a new breed of safety with guys like [Troy] Polamalu and Ed Reed,” said the hard-hitting, 6-1, 205-pounder. They definitely do more than just cover the middle of the field deep. They’ve got to cover, blitz, just do it all.” -Michael Huff

    The way I see it Landry can cover the middle of the field deep, cover, blitz, tackle...he can do it all.

    He's going to make the top ten....but he's one of those guys who is the answer to why they give the wonderlick at all. No more Ronnie Lott compairison's please. I now understand why the numbers do not match the production.

    I know it's only highlights but everytime I see his I get a little more pumped up about this kid. We shall see come draft day. Never get to attached to a player until the ink is dry on the contract. That way I'm not overly upset day after the draft. Was a Bush supporter last year but was'nt crushed when we took Mario.

    Intresting fact: Landry's (4.35) was the only Safety that ran a sub-4.40 at the combine.

    I thought Reggie Nelson ran in the 4.3's as well? Also, I'm wondering why Ken Hamlin is getting no play right now? I mean, if we signed him, Laron Landry is done as a Texan. If not, we have NO starting FS...at least not a real one.

    interesting...trade down?

    Nelson had two 'poor' runs at the combine..something like a 4.5 and a 4.48. He did real well at his pro day w/ a 4.35 so he shouldn't have to worry.

    I'm surprised w/ hamlin too...he's been relatively quiet. if we signed him...then traded down and picked leon hall or darelle revis or so, our secondary would be amazing.

    laron landry is a stud...a playmaker...a difference maker on the defense...if we pick him up you'll see more INT's for this team...a few more coverage sacks...and i think in the end a lot of happy texan fans

    I think you'll see more dropped passes also . Paired with Robinson we'll have the makings of a hard hitting secondary .

    Comparisons are Reggie Nelson - Ed Reed and Laron Landry - Michael Dawkins

    I wrote that about Landry after watching him play Auburn last year. He is a stud, and he is not like Roy Williams he can cover.

    This is how I see the draft playing out IMO.

    If Peterson or Quinn fall to 8, we are taking them. There is no chance of Peterson, so I still think it would be Quinn.

    There will be WR talent in the 2nd (maybe even Jarret) if we go secondary first.

    I would rather see Leon Hall over Landry. A corner is a lot harder to find than a safety, and the draft is loaded with safeties for 4 rounds.

    Taking a S at number 8 in this draft with all the safety talent would be a huge mistake.

    1. CB
    2. WR
    3. S
    4. DT
    5. DE
    6. RB (this shoots up to number 1 if Peterson is there)

    Whatever the picks, a franchise back needs to be the first pick next year. McFadden would be great.

    He is definitely worth a hard look if still there at #8. The boy can lay some wood and can cover also.

    I just have a gut feeling that we will look to trade down to pick up additional picks.
