What can you guys tell me about this kid? I havent seen much of him, I know he looked pretty good in his first couple of years, but no one is talking about him being a 1st round pick, why?

Just looking to get some insght, thanks!

Poor mans Jay Cutler or a taller Cutler without the mobility. Big arm, but makes bad throws and decisions...

Dude is terrible. Never understood his hype dating back to 3 yrs ago. Too inconsistent...especially in big games. Gets rattled easy and not a fan of his accuracy.

This is coming from a Chiefs fan - he reminds me of a bigger, stronger armed Matt Cassel. What I mean by this is that he breaks down in the pocket when he feels pressure or even anticipates pressure. IMO his poor pocket presence is going to be an issue at the NFL level.

Basically this. Kid can't even complete 65% of his throws in a spread offense and is an interception machine (41 INT heading into 2012).

He is like Blaine Gabbert with 0 mobility. He is afraid to get hit, spotty to bad accuracy, worse decision maker than Gabbert, plays with a quite a bit of NFL talent and never really produces. I wouldn't touch him if you are a WCO team. Great flag football QB, not so much in the NFL.

Should be a 2nd round pick, would be my guess. If Brock Osweiler can go in round 2, so can Jones.

Only Brock Osweiler is very athletic for his size, and he isn't afraid of pressure. No team should touch him before the 6th IMO.

One of the slowest qb's i have ever seen.

Shotgun arm, he's accurate, slow release, not athletic, and he has a low ceiling. 3rd round pick at bets imo

I see a Ryan Mallett who is terrified of pressure.

Mallett + Gabbert= Success?

He got Philip Rivers speed. Laughing

He is not very good and when he's not in that system, I think he will fail.

I like him a lot more than most here, but he definitely has a handful of 'red flags' and he will very much be a developmental/project type pick. Not a guy you would consider in the 1st round right now.

His pocket presence certainly needs work, as does his decisionmaking. His consistency is the biggest concern i have, as he has some real ups and downs. At times, he can look like a very good QB, other times he just looks awful.

The positive side, he has a good arm, good size, and when he gets in a groove and has a clean pocket to throw from, he can be quite accurate. Their are some physical tools there, minus any real mobility to speak of. When he's on, he throws the ball like a stud prospect and from time to time, makes some fairly difficult tosses. It's mostly just the down times where you see the real red flags come out. When he's bad, he can be really bad.

But for me, the upside if he can work on out some of his consistency issues, would easily justify a 3rd round selection, and even 2nd round wouldn't be the biggest stretch given where we've seen some other 'developmental' QBs go lately. I'd take him over quite a few recent 2nd round QBs, and this is a year where even the '1st round talents' have plenty of their own red flags.

He is the sort of QB prospect who will need to be treated carefully. He'll need time to sit and learn the pro game and build on his fundamentals, but i do think that in the right situation with time to sit and the right system fit for his skillset, he could be a good NFL quarterback.[/i]

Shouldn't be drafted before the 4th, but will be.

His mechanical issues are probably only second to Tyler Bray in terms of needing to be cleaned up. He'll need a strong QB coach, and I think he can be a decent starting quarterback but you're probably not getting a franchise changer. I think his upside is that of Eli Manning a few years ago.

Average at best tools guy, who doesn't read defenses well, coming out of a system that's specifically designed to mask his weaknesses.

The only people who think Landry Jones will be successful in the NFL are people whose scouting credentials begin and end with looking at box scores and playing Madden.
