LaRon Landry may be the best pure free safety in the nation right now. His coverage skills in center field are virtually second to none, and he hits surprisingly hard for his light size. He's also one of the few safety prospects in recent years who is a total ball hawk, flowing to the ball and the play better than the majority of defenders in the nation.


Landry's frame is a little smallish for the typical NFL safety, and some teams may try to make him gain weight so as to help improve his durability at the NFL level. He also sometimes tries to go for the big play instead of the sure thing, and that has created problems in the past.


Ever since his debut as a freshman, Landry has been one of LSU's top defenders and has steadily risen up the ranks as one of the best defensive backs in the nation. He has improved every year and should become a solid free safety in the NFL for years to come.
