Though Landry Jones has met with several teams that are in desperate need of a quarterback at this week's Senior Bowl, one interview stood out for the Big 12 all-time leader in passing yards.
Jones, a four-year starter at Oklahoma, broke down Xs and Os and explained some of the nuances of the Sooners' spread offense in a meeting with Chiefs coach Andy Reid earlier this week.
“I loved Coach Reid,” Jones said. “It was an honor to pick his brain about things. It was just a really cool experience.”
Though the Sooners' spread offense isn't run at a tempo as fast as the version in Oregon, Jones still operated primarily without a huddle in college. Scott Linehan, the Lions' offense coordinator, has been impressed with Jones' ability to handle no-huddle situations and his accuracy through the first three days of practice in Mobile, Ala.

While Jones rarely ran the read-option in college, he indicated that he would have little trouble picking it up if he's drafted by Philadelphia. Jones has yet to meet with Eagles coach Chip Kelly.
“If they want me to run it we can start to figure something out and started running,” Jones jokingly said.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz, the coach of the South team, lauded Jones, Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel and Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson for their play early in the week.
“From the time the three quarterbacks stepped into the huddle, they had good command, they weren't botching snaps and they were making accurate throws,” Schwartz said.
