2013 NFL Draft: Landry Jones will work out for Buffalo Bills

New, comments

Add Oklahoma's Landry Jones to the quickly-lengthening list of 2013 NFL Draft quarterback prospects that the Buffalo Bills are doing extra homework on.

ESPN AFC East blogger James Walker, citing a source, is reporting that the Buffalo Bills will conduct a private workout with Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones this week. The news comes as the Bills' decision-making brass tours the nation, working out other quarterbacks (Geno Smith and E.J. Manuel last week) and having dinner with free agents (tight end Fred Davis).

Jones (6'4", 225) enters the 2013 NFL Draft as a four-year starter in the Big 12, having thrown for 16,646 yards (on 63.6 percent completions) with 123 touchdowns and 52 interceptions. Though it initially looked like Jones could develop into a first-round talent early in his career, concerns about his mobility, ball placement, anticipation and pocket presence have relegated him to discussions on Day 2 (or even Day 3) prospects.

The Bills, in dire need of a young quarterback to develop, seem hell-bent on working out or hosting every notable (and perhaps even non-notable) prospect available this year. We'll keep track of all of the names the team does extra homework on as we hear about them.
