Steelers Select Landry Jones From Oklahoma


The Pittsburgh Steelers have made their second pick in the 4th round of the 2013 NFL Draft. That player will be quarterback Landry Jones from Oklahoma. First of all, I must say that I never imagined the Steelers to take a quarterback this early in the draft.

On the plus side, Jones broke every quarterback record for the Sooners besides two. Breaking each one that Rams quarterback Sam Bradford set. Jones was Bradford’s replacement.

Mike Mayock from the NFL Network said this after Jones was drafted: “A little bit like Matt Barkley and Tyler Wilson. To be fair, you have to go back to his junior tape, maybe even his sophomore tape. I feel the more pressure he was under to win games, he was forcing things to win games. I have a fourth-round grade on him.”

  1. He may have broken Bradford’s records at Oklahoma but was Jones ever projected as an overall top pick in the NFL Draft? Even with his shoulder injuries at Oklahoma, NFL teams loved Bradford’s skill set and still selected him #1 overall. Like I said, Jones’ best playing days were made for college football. Plus, I know avid Sooner fans and they were not crying in their beer over Jones departure. Hopefully, he proves me wrong. I would gladly have egg on my face should he prove to be our next starting QB. But I still believe a CB prospect would have better suited the team’s needs.
