Top 100 players in college football this season: #9 Harold Landry, DE, Boston College

To borrow from the lexicon of Boston College coach Steve Addazio, Landry is a dude among dudes—that is to say, a budding superstar on the edge of the Eagles’ sturdy defense. He led the nation in both sacks (a BC-record 16.5) and forced fumbles (seven) in 2016 as his unit tied a school record for total sacks and finished top 10 in yards allowed and tackles for loss. Landry closes and connects in the backfield like a well-trained safety—or at least like someone slighter than his listed 6’3”, 250-pound frame. His decision to return for his senior season truly stacks the field of top-flight ACC Defensive Player of the Year candidates.
