Draft Analysis:

Landes is a younger replacement option at long-snapper going into the season. --Mark Dulgerian

  • 9 5/8" Hands

Overview

Long snappers are typically not two-sport athletes in college, but Landes managed the feat during his time at Baylor. An honorable mention all-state pick from Tyler, Texas, Landes walked on as a snapper on the football team for the 2011 season and got on the field much more quickly than anticipated. An injury to the starting snapper in the second game of the year put Landes on the field for 11 games as a true freshman. Although he acquitted himself well, he decided to redshirt in football for 2012 so he could focus on catching for the Bears' baseball squad. With limited success on the diamond (four starts, .048 batting average), he came back to the football team in 2013 as a back-up. The lead snapper job -- and a scholarship -- opened up before the 2014 season, and Landes excelled in the position in both his junior and senior seasons.

Analysis

Strengths

Former college catcher at Baylor. Good accuracy on his punt snaps with decent snap speed. Accurate field goal snapper all of 2015.

Weaknesses

Not a great athlete to chase for tackles on punt coverage. Had minor issues with snap accuracy on field goals in 2014.

Draft Projection

Undrafted free agent

Bottom Line

Three-year, full­-time snapper who has been a mainstay at Baylor. Coverage and snap speed will be closely monitored if Landes is to have a shot at getting into a camp.
