Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma

University of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones had been in the mix for consideration as one of the top players at his position in the 2013 draft class. Unfortunately, a lackluster senior season and Senior Bowl have him sliding.

Coaches will want to reshape his throwing motion and shorten it up. The knock on him is that he isn't all that athletic and struggles with his footwork. He does well enough feeling out pressure in the pocket, but needs to remain technically sound once his feet start moving. His long throwing motion only complicates things when flushed out of the pocket. Jones does a great job making reads and checking (or calling audibles) pre-snap. After the snap, he shows a proficient ability to work through his progressions to find the open man. Though, he sometimes forces passes and relies too heavily on accuracy and confidence.

Jones has really matured in his years as Oklahoma's leader. The pressures of the position have molded him in the right direction. Throwing him into the fire to replace Bradford has really accelerated his growth, but it appears his draft stock has fallen significantly to where he was rated just a year ago.

He throws the ball with good velocity and can make every pass. Above average arm strength.

Analysts are going to nitpick his throwing motion and mechanics. He projects as a third or fourth round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Prediction: 3rd Round

If he falls which a lot of experts are predicting that he will, then I say 3rd round to the jets (hopefully)
