Tennessee Titans Select Defensive End Harold Landry With 41st Pick

Congrats Harold! Good luck with Tennessee!

NCAA Football: Boston College at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College defensive end Harold Landry has found his home, as he was selected by the Tennessee Titans with the 41st pick in the 2018 NFL draft. In terms of defensive ends he was selected behind Marcus Davenport of UTSA and Bradley Chubb of NC State, and slipped in the draft probably due to injury concerns.

Landry, a North Carolina native finished the 2018 season with five sacks in 9 games, missing four games with an ankle injury including the Pinstripe Bowl against the Iowa Hawkeyes. He exploded in his junior season breaking the Boston College Eagles single season sack record with 16.5 tackles.

He really caught attention of scouts with his elite speed off the edge and his ability to bend to get around defenders. Landry is the first Eagle selected in the first two rounds since offensive lineman Anthony Castonzo was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in 2011 and Luke Kuechly in 2012.

Congratulations to Harold, thank you for all your hard work at Boston College and best of luck in the NFL in 2018!
