For the Jon Gruden QB Camp series, we wanted Insiders to see a little more. So we dispatched ESPN.com NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas to Tampa, Fla., to sit in with the coach and squeeze out a little more insight. This is the result.
Landry Jones just about reached the top of the college football world. He threw for 7,916 yards and 64 touchdowns, was the best player in his conference, was on every national awards list and was the focus of everybody in the NFL. The crazy thing is, at that point, Jones was just halfway done -- he practically squeezed what for most players would be a good college football career into his first two seasons at Oklahoma.
And I think it caused some problems.
