Landry Jones will visit the Bills

The Bills haven’t been shy about their desire to find a quarterback to build their offense around and they aren’t being shy about kicking the tires of candidates for the job.

On the heels of news that E.J. Manuel of Florida State and Geno Smith of West Virginia will be visiting with the team comes word that Oklahoma’s Landry Jones is also on the radar. James Walker of ESPN.com reports that Jones will be in Buffalo to meet with the Bills this week as they continue the effort to find a quarterback other than Tarvaris Jackson to sit atop their depth chart.

Jones flashed a huge arm during a prolific career at Oklahoma, throwing for more than 4,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and finishing with 123 passing touchdowns. There have been questions about his accuracy and his erratic performances in big games, however, and that currently has Jones projected to be a mid-round draft pick come next month.

It just takes one team to see something for such projections to change, however. If Jones can show the Bills what they want, he could be a potential solution to the biggest need on the Bills roster.

    He could be a guy you get in the 2nd… Maybe even the 3rd. Good value has the skill set and the leadership qualities where with the proper coaching he could become a solid pro.

    A year ago he was widely considered a Top 15 pick but went back for his senior year, now he’s been surpassed on the same experts rankings in a much weaker QB class. Its not like the accuracy/big game questions weren’t already there the last 3 years so I’m kinda confused how his stock fell that far. From a physical skill set perspective he is clearly ahead of such players as Barkley or Nassib.

    It seems like this year you had alot of qbs like Barkley and Jones who would have been drafted way higher if they left college last year…memo to future qbs take the money

    All the Qbs this year are middle to late 1st round. only issue is all teams with QB needs select early.

    Has there EVER been a draft where a qb wasn’t selected in the top 10-15 picks

    Landry Jones is a 3rd round pick slightly ahead of Tyler Bray, Tyler Wilson and EJ Manuel.
    The Bills will trade their 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th round pick to Houston for #27.
    This is how the Bills first 3 picks will go.
    1st round Alabama OG Chance Warmack
    1st round Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib
    4th round Syracuse OT Justin Pugh

    The Landry Jones is the smokest of smokescreens.

    Ryan Nassib is the future Franchise Quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. Marrone knows absolutely everything about him from spending the past couple of years with him. If anyone has a leg up when it comes to the former Syracuse product, It would be Marrone

    I played against this guy in HS football, for a state like New Mexico he was always the best player on the field. I think he has the physical tools based on his college career to be a huge hit. Especially if he lands with the right team. A team with a coach that can really get the best out of him and perfect his game.

    Hard for the Bills to trade their 7th round pick when they don’t have one. No way they would give up four picks anyhow.

    Smokescreen. The Bills are going Nassib all the way. I even heard a rumor that Marrone was seen helping Nassib pick out furniture at Ikea.
