Look Out For Landry Jones
Following Sam Bradford at Oklahoma wasn't an easy task and Landry Jones did not keep the Sooners in the National Title hunt like he or any OU fan would have liked, but he may just be the best NFL prospect in this year's QB draft class.
After watching him on "Gruden's QB Camp" and reading Charlie Casserly's thoughts about Jones' prospects, I too believe he is at the top of a relatively mediocre class of hopefuls. Jones throws with great balance, ala Joe Flacco. Because of this, he has better accuracy than most of his peers.
After showing Jones some poor decisions during his college career, Gruden pointed out that he needs to learn how to give up on some plays and not turn the ball over or make bad decisions trying to do too much. If he can learn this philosophy, he has the throwing mechanics and ability to make a very successful move to the next level.
