Scouting Report
In many ways, Jones has all the traits scouts and executives are looking for in a franchise quarterback. He's got the prototypical frame and build for the position, an arm as strong as any other in this draft class and a track record of healthy production throughout his college career at Oklahoma. Jones is the Big 12's all-time leader in career passing yards and third in terms of the FBS with 16,646 to go along with 123 touchdowns and 52 interceptions. But he also might not have improved his draft stock since his 2010 sophomore year, his first full season as the starter after the departure of Sam Bradford. Some were surprised when he elected to return for his senior season, as he likely would have been a first-round pick last April. Instead, as a senior he continued to give critics fodder for complaints about his inconsistency. Jones struggled at times in the Sooners' biggest games last season, combining for two touchdowns and three interceptions in losses to Kansas State, Notre Dame and Texas A&M. Scouts have also criticized his ability to evade pressure and respond after being hit. He didn't do much at the combine to refute those points, running an unimpressive 5.11 seconds in the 40-yard dash that ranked 13th among quarterbacks. Jones has worked with lauded quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. - who helped develop the likes of Cam Newton, Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger - but it likely won't stamp out concerns regarding his ability to perform more consistently in high-pressure situations.
