    To me, I don't think there is a whole lot wrong with Landry Jones.

    Great size, strong, accurate arm. Can make all the throws. Hardly ever gets sacked. He's been a 63-65% passer the past three years. I know his stock has dropped quite a bit but if he was there in the second and differently in the 3rd, a team would be crazy to pass on him. Who knows what he becomes at the next level. And the risk for a team who already has an established QB wouldn't be all that much (especially if drafted in the 3rd round), but the reward could be huge. See Tom Brady.

    And let me add, 122 TD's to only 51 INT's over his career. And that career includes being a 4 year starter.

    IMO Landry would thrive in Haley's system, but I don't think they will be looking for a back-up QB before Round 5.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Agreed. Someone is going to take a flyer on him and at the next level he may flourish.

    I wouldn't be so sure the Steelers wouldn't look at QB early. Ben will be an old 31 in May. Why wouldn't we groom a future starter behind a future HOFr? Worked out well for Aaron Rodgers.

    I wouldn't have a problem with that. Landry has started 4 years at Oklahoma. I really think if he were to get into the right fit he could be a better pro than a college QB.

    Drafting a backup QB makes sense. Ben seems to miss a few games each year, and it makes sense to have somebody capable to plug into the most important position on the field.

    Plus, a few good performances from a young backup can lead to a nice haul in a trade, and those trades almost always work best for the team trading the QB (with the exception of Schaub).

    I would have no problem drafting a QB in the 3rd round.

    Me either. In fact, I think it's time.

    Count me in, I don't have a problem either. Lefty is on his way out so we need another QB in case of injury. Ben probably has about 5 more years in him so it wouldn't hurt to get someone in to groom.
    I have no preference after round one, I want TNT/ NT John Jenkins from Georgia.

    I like Jones too. There are no guarantees with QBs, but with the right situation (coaching, opportunity), he could be a Drew Brees type of QB at the next level.
