Which NFL teams would be interested in OU's Landry Jones?

Oklahoma junior quarterback Landry Jones is currently listed as the No. 13 overall prospect on ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper's board. There's still a long way to go, and it doesn't necessarily mean Jones would be the 13th pick in the April draft, but it does give some insight as to where he would be selected if he decides to give up his senior season. Examining the standings, here are a few teams that just might be in the market for Jones' services.

(5-9)

Washington

Rex Grossman is hardly the answer right now, let alone the long term.

Landry Meter (1 to 10, 1 being least interested and 10 being most): 10

Miami

Matt Moore? John Beck? Where's Ray Lucas when you need him? Fins haven't had a QB since that Marino guy.

Landry Meter: 10

Carolina

All set, with Cam Newton. They have taken too many quarterbacks in recent years, as it is.

Landry Meter: 1

Buffalo

Ryan Fitzpatrick has a cannon arm, and the Bills have more problems. But maybe a backup plan, in case Fitz fizzles?

Landry Meter: 3

(6-8)

Philadelphia

Maybe, as a backup to Michael Vick. Again, though, surely more pressing needs in Round 1.

Landry Meter: 3

Kansas City

Matt Cassel and, now, Kyle Orton are there. But, then again, Matt Cassel and Kyle Orton are there.

Landry Meter: 6

(7-7)

Tennessee

Just took Jake Locker in 2011.

Landry Meter: 1

Seattle

With Tavaris Jackson running the offense, this makes as much sense as anything.

Landry Meter: 10

San Diego

Hmm. This one's interesting. Career backup Billy Volek's getting up there in years. Would be an ideal spot to sit back, learn.

Landry Meter: 8

Oakland

Carson Palmer seems to be playing better, and Jason Campbell returns. But it's Oakland. You never know.

Landry Meter: 3

N.Y. Giants

No way Giants use a first-rounder on a QB as a backup. Find some linemen or defensive players, G-Men.

Landry Meter: 1

Chicago

See what happens when Jay Cutler gets hurt? Not. Good.

Landry Meter: 5

Arizona

Invested in Kevin Kolb, but how invested can you be?

Landry Meter: 5
