Landry Jones’ quarterback coach outside of Oklahoma is making news for the former Sooners quarterback again.

Also, Jones met with Kansas City coach Andy Reid, who holds the drafts’ top pick.

“He’s an awesome coach, and it would be an honor to play for him,” Jones said. “This is definitely a wide-open year. There’s a lot of guys with a lot of talent. … The further we get into this process, there’s going to be somebody who puts himself ahead.”

Now, I’m just going to drop in these quotes from George Whitfield and let you go in the comments:

“He’s absolutely a first rounder, especially when you look at not only his class, but classes prior to this one,” Whitfield told USA TODAY Sports at the scouting combine Friday.

“I would say he’s similar to Matt Ryan. Matt Ryan doesn’t wear face paint; he’s not going to fist pump and all that stuff; he’s not going to head-butt his offensive linemen. He’s cool, calculated.

“The Atlanta Falcons took a senior who played an awful lot of games at Boston College, and they hooked that wagon to him. Landry is a little bit bigger than Matt Ryan. … (And) Landry is a master distributor.”
