Advanced scouting: Landry Jones

Landry Jones
Landry Jones looks like a prototypical quarterback and has the arm to make all the NFL throws.
To help preview who might be on the Dallas Cowboys’ board for the NFL draft, ESPNDallas.com has identified five players at five key positions that we’d like to learn more about. Along those lines, we’ve asked former Cowboys assistant coach Glenn “Stretch” Smith – the official scout of Galloway & Company – to study tape of each player and give his thoughts.

No. 2 quarterback: Landry Jones


Height/weight: 6-foot-4 1/8, 225 pounds

School: Oklahoma

Why he’s on the radar: Jones looks like a prototypical quarterback and started 50 games at Oklahoma, being put in the unenviable position of replacing Heisman winner Sam Bradford. Jones wasn’t as productive for the Sooners as his tools suggested he could have been, but he has a strong arm and excellent intangibles. Can his tendency to have tunnel vision be coached out of Jones?

Projection: Third or fourth round

Stretch Truths: Big, physical quarterback has the arm to make all the NFL throws. … My concern is that he gets bothered by the rush and gets happy feet. … Always in the gun, which presents a challenge for him. … Makes poor throws on the move. … I question this kid's "want to."
