Although some NFL scouts projected Landry as a second or third round draft choice in 2017, Landry has a goal to break into the top 20 picks of the 2018 NFL draft.
The motivation to return to school came from his fiancee. When she informed Landry she was pregnant, Landry refocused himself to climb as high in the draft as possible.
