08:57 AM ET 01.27 | NFL scouts are puzzled with Oklahoma QB Landry Jones. At one point he was considered a future top of the draft prospect, the next Sam Bradford. But not anymore. Jones had one more chance to save his stock at the Senior Bowl, but scouts say he just looked average. The suspicion of many now is Jones was just a system quarterback. He looks like a second round pick at best now.

Someone else that will get drafted way too high by some team that needs a QB.

"The suspicion of many now is Jones was just a system quarterback". So how do all of these people know that Sam Bradford wasn't just a "system quarterback"? After all, he hasn't done anything in the NFL.

The next Sam Bradford, yawn maybe if Jon Gruden comes back he can add him to his stable

Sounds more like an Arizona first round pick.

Is " puzzled" the new buzz word to stay socially correct? As in " I find him "puzzling," as opposed to " He suucked?"

Jones must have some nerve... how dare he put on an average show with strange players running new plays with little practice time to develop chemistry with his receivers. Those QBs have some nerve!

He needs a lot of work and is not worth a top pick.Maybe a 5 round.

Still, it never makes it any easier. It does remind us that games are really just games and that is the reason why we involve ourselves with them, there is enough reality checks in life without adding more.
