Draft Scout Landry Jones News
09/29/15 - QB Landry Jones will dress for his first game in his three seasons since the Steelers drafted him in the fourth round from Oklahoma in 2013. He will serve as No. 2 and head coach Mike Tomlin said they have no plans to sign a third quarterback while Ben Roethlisberger is out.
08/31/14 - QB Landry Jones, a fourth-round pick in 2013, made the team again despite poor showings in practice and in preseason games for a second year.
08/11/14 - QB Landry Jones, No. 3 since his rookie season last year, took snaps with the second-team offense in practice Monday.
09/01/13 - QB Landry Jones (fourth round) becomes the highest-drafted player at his position to make the team as a rookie since Ben Roethlisberger (1st) in 2004.
06/13/13 - QB Landry Jones signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who know have their entire draft class under contract.
Financial terms of the four-year deal were not disclosed.
Landry was drafted in the fourth round after setting an Oklahoma career record by starting 48 consecutive games. He als set school and Big 12 Conference career records by completing 1,388 of 2,183 passes for 16,646 yards and 123 touchdowns.
Landry isn't necessarily viewed as the heir apparent to Ben Roethlisbeger. While he set numerous passing records at Oklahoma, he never developed into the elite pro prospect the Sooners envisioned after a stellar freshman season taking over for Sam Bradford.
Jones needs to prove he can make solid progressions through his routes and make the transition to playing under center in the NFL. And while Jones has a strong arm, he lacks consistent accuracy to all levels.
This year, Jones will compete with veterans Bruce Gradkowski and John Parker Wilson as the Steelers attempt to get younger behind Roethlisberger after years of relying on Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich.
