Sac, some of your points I agree with, some not so much.

Bray: has good size, arm strength, and has definitely improved in his accuracy/decision making especially towards the end of the year IMO. I think this is the year he takes a large step forward. Keep in mind he was a soph last year playing with a bad Tennessee team and looked good in his first game. In all likelihood, he's the 1st QB picked in the 2014 draft.

Thomas: Agreed. Definitely better than Tebow and definitely worse than Cam. This year will tell us a lot.

Wilson is awesome. Definitely won't be there when we pick, unless we end up with the 2nd pick IMO.

Glennon: Glad to see we're on board with that. Haven't watched much tape, but will provide a better evaluation once the season progresses.

Manuel: Wasn't impressed too much with last year. Again, haven't watched much, but I believe he was injured the majority of the year and that hurt his performances. I did like the true frosh they had last year filling in though. Needs to hit the weight room for sure.

Smith: Agreed completely. Has a great chance to leapfrog Wilson, but I doubt he does if Wilson can put solid performances against Alabama and other top D's (LSU, GA/South Carolina)

Murray: This is where I disagree big time. If you watch his tape from Michigan State last year, you'll see some NFL throws, solid work through his progressions, good pocket awareness, and a nice deep ball. I'm cherry picking here with one game, but I think he's definitely NFL starter material. WOn't come out until 2014 though, so it is moot IMO.

Jones: Again we disagree. I'm not going to put all of the blame on him bc of the Offense at OU, but to me, he really seems like a newer version of Cassel. He is upgraded Cassel in all areas but isn't as good as Smith, Wilson, Bray, Glennon, or Murray IMO. He doesn't respond well under pressure (both from a pass rushing standpoint or big games IMO). Typically reads 1 side of the field but that is a product of the college spread/ lack of coverage talent in the Big 12, and OU's offense. Hard to say how much is on him. I understand that Bell took TDs away from him, but if he is a solid QB, then they aren't taking him out in goal situations. Nobody took WIlson out and he is a pure pocket passer like Jones. I don't see a better Sanchez, as their offensive systems, nomenclature were completely different. Same with the Matt Ryan comparison. Definitely has more experience than Sanchez.

Look, if Landry comes out and has a great year, can show an improved pocket presence and proves he's worthy of a 1st round pick, I'll completely endorse him. From what I have seen the last 3 years, he hasn't appeared like a 1st round pick. His stats might be there (minus his YPA) but from my eye test, no. Again, that is my own opinion and can definitely change as this season progresses. In fact, I hope it does. If this draft ends up having 7 qbs that are 1st round talent, then all the better. I look forward to seeing if Landry Jones can prove me wrong and hope he does, not only for our benefit, but his as well.
