“I don’t think that he’s in the class with Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck or RGIII…or even (Ryan) Tannehill,” Polian said. “But I do think that he has a big arm, he can make all the throws, is very poised in the pocket and has a good release. He can see the field, he understands what he’s looking at. He has leadership qualities, even though he’s a quiet low-key kid.”
Clearly, Polian’s anointment of Landry atop the QB list comes with a caveat, which he noted, mainly concerning the lack of elite quarterbacking talent available.
But regardless, Polian still said he viewed Landry as a mid- to late-first rounder, slightly ahead of Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib and West Virginia’s Geno Smith, his next highest-rated signal-callers.
