    i know who they drafted with the actual traded pick. point is, they never would have passed on thomas at that point to draft landry if they only had 1 pick in the 4th. even tomlin isnt that stupid

    We drafted one of his supporting cast today.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    I would see no reason to trade Jones if he is good enough to be traded. With Ben's age and injury history, you trade him or let him walk in FA and take a 3rd round comp pick.

    Giving Ben another contract after this one ends IMO will put the team in a terrible salary cap position seeing as how the Joe Flacco's of the league are now pulling down 20+ million a year. That is why as much as I like Ben as this team's QB and realize how good he is, it was so important to get a new QB in who could some day lead this team.

    I'm pretty stoked that the Steelers drafted Landry Jones! Didn't think he would have been there for us, but we got him! However, Tyler Bray is still available...possibly UDFA signing and place on practice squad?

    Also...will Jarvis Jones have J.Jones on his jersey and Landry having L.Jones on his jersey...or will it not matter since one is on offense and the other on defense?

    Bill Polian says Landry Jones is the best QB in the draft

    Posted by Michael David Smith on April 19, 2013



    In the 1998 NFL draft, Colts General Manager Bill Polian had a decision to make: Peyton Manning or Ryan Leaf? He chose right, and as a result his job in Indianapolis was safe as long Manning was there.

    Now Polian is playing a different role, analyzing the draft for ESPN, and he was asked to pick the best quarterback in this year’s draft. Polian’s surprising answer? Oklahoma’s Landry Jones.

    Polian said he attended the 2011 Oklahoma-Texas A&M game and watched Jones complete 18/38 passes for 255 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions, and Polian thought Jones compared favorably to Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was last year’s No. 8 overall pick and is now the Dolphins’ starter.

    “He was a good one, and when he had a good supporting cast around him, he was great,” Polian said of Jones. “I was at the game in Norman where he beat Tannehill head-to-head, in a very, very fierce wind. So this guy has been a winner, he’s got stature, he’s got arm strength — he can make all the throws. He sees the field quite well, and he’s a natural leader.”

    Polian acknowledged that there are concerns about Jones, including his lack of mobility, and he said he doesn’t see a Peyton Manning in this year’s draft. But he thinks if there’s a quarterback who’s going to make an instant impact for an NFL team in 2013, it’s Jones.

    “I don’t think anybody in this group is going to be able to step in right away and lead the team, but if you ask me, who’s the guy who’s most ready, and who’s the guy who’s had the most winning experience, it would be Landry Jones,” Polian said.
