In the 2014 NFL draft, the Miami Dolphins selected wide receiver Jarvis Landry in the second round.  It's early, but Landry has already created some buzz after several strong OTA performances.

Many of those who watched the Dolphins practice have been impressed with Landry's strong hands and ability to make plays after the catch: 

Good catch by #Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry. The ball sticks when he gets his hands on it.

Landry could be the steal of the draft, and he might be the final piece to the Dolphins' offensive puzzle.  Miami struggled at the slot position last year due to inconsistency and injuries from Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews. 

Even the Dolphins' franchise quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been impressed with Landry's performance: 

Tannehill says Jarvis Landry has some of the "strongest hands" he's ever seen on a receiver

With a revamped offensive line and a solid receiving corps, Tannehill finally has the weapons around him to succeed:

Sometimes it's easy to get blown away by an OTA performance, but Landry's strong hands were evident even back in his college days at LSU.  In his last season at LSU, Landry had 77 receptions for a total of 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns.  

Since the draft, many analysts have praised the Dolphins for their second-round selection:

Todd McShay loves Jarvis Landry. Trent Dilfer compared him to "another version of Anquan Boldin." That makes me feel a little better.

Not only has Landry been impressive during OTAs, many claim he's been the Dolphins' best offensive player:

If Landry can produce like this in the fall, Miami's offense could be lethal.  With the speedy Mike Wallace, the dependable Brian Hartline and the newly acquired Jarvis Landry, the Dolphins might have the best receiving trio in the AFC.
