Steelers Draft Quarterback Landry Jones

Steelers selected Oklahoma QB Landry Jones with the No. 115 overall pick. Jones (6-foot-4 1/8, 225) was a four-year starter, succeeding Sam Bradford and completing 65.0 percent of his career passes with a 123:52 TD-to-INT ratio in the Sooners' wide-open spread.

Jones has starting-caliber arm talent -- he's drawn Ken Stabler comparisons from ESPN's Ron Jaworski -- but crumbles in the pocket with bodies around him and tends to sense pressure when it isn't there. He's got the Gabbert syndrome.

Jones still throws the ball well enough with his feet set that he's worth a developmental flier. Ben Roethlisberger has missed eight games over the last three seasons and Jones fits Todd Haley's quick-hitting passing scheme. (RotoWorld)
