OU football: Quarterback Landry Jones won't make NFL decision until Jan. 15

OKLAHOMA FOOTBALL — University of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones said Wednesday that he'll wait until the last possible moment to decide if he'll enter the NFL Draft. Jones spoke to reporters in Arizona while prepping for the Insight Bowl.

“Yeah,” the understated Jones said, “I don't know if I'll do that.”

Jones became the school's all-time leading passer earlier this season. In 39 career games, Jones has thrown for 12,218 yards – including 4,302 this season – and 92 touchdowns, to 40 interceptions.

CBS Sports' draft website has given Jones a first-round grade, pegging him to go third among quarterbacks, after Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin III.

Griffin also said Wednesday, on ESPN, that he doesn't anticipate making a decision until the deadline.

Scouts are enjoying a virtual bonanza here in the desert, between the two bowls and Luck and Jones practicing in the same city.

“I think he is a great quarterback,” Luck said Wednesday when he was asked about Jones. “I think he will be successful no matter what he does, if he stays or goes.”
