Is this a good place for him?
I'd think it would be a great place to learn under Rothlisberger. Great organization!
I'd say yes. Stable (Tomlin isn't going anywhere as long as he wants the job), run a lot of pro style, 3 and 4 wr sets, operate out of the shotgun a lot. Steelers are as good an organization as there is in pro football. No pressure to come in and start because of Rothlesberger. I'd say its about as good as it can be for Landry. I'm happy for him. He deserves good things.

Depends on what he learns from Roethlisberger I guess, but Landry has his head on straight.

And Big Ben's sister was a Sooner. :)
He will be a major improvement on the back-up's. Last year they struggled when Ben went down. I was hoping he went to the Vikings with AD.
Trabor called it. This is a great place for him. BR usually has some missed time every year.
Whats really good is the Steelers have one of the best young centers in the league and added a 2012 1st round Guard from Stanford Last year and also got a huge tackle from tOSU with their second pic last year.
Great for him. He can learn for a few years as a backup.
Steelers pick up Landry Jones in fourth round
By ERIC BAILEY World Sports Writer on Apr 27, 2013
Quarterback Landry Jones was the 115th overall pick and second OU football player taken in this year’s NFL draft.
Jones was a fourth-round selection in the NFL Draft on Saturday. The Sooners’ four-year starter was the 115th overall pick and second OU football player taken in this year’s event.
Jones is the Big 12 Conference’s all-time passing leader (16,646 yards), which also ranks third in NCAA history. He owns nine school records and led the Sooners to 39 victories, more than any other OU quarterback.
The fourth-round selection is lower than expected at this time last year. Some speculated Jones could be a first- or second-round pick if he left after his junior season.
Jones was the seventh quarterback taken in the 2013 Draft.
Jones joins a Steelers roster that includes quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger, Bruce Gradkowski and John Parker Wilson.
Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson was the draft’s fourth overall selection on Thursday night. He was picked by the Philadelphia Eagles.
The NFL Draft continues Saturday with the final four rounds. Among OU players to keep an eye for are wide receiver Kenny Stills and safety Tony Jefferson, who decided to forego their final season in college for early entry into the NFL Draft.
Good place for him, but Ben is prone to being injured. Landry could see some time early on in his career.

Good place for Landry.
I think he will stick there.
Being under Roethlisberger will help him.
I think he could be a starter some day--------3--4 years
So, what is the general salary range for a 4th round QB? I am guessing $800K - $900K. Anybody have a good read on what he will probably make?
I think this is a perfect position for Landry. He will get to sit and learn for a couple of years, barring an injury to Ben. I think that is absolutely the best position for most kids coming into the league. Their offense always has a strong running game and they are retooling their OL so it ought to be good timing for Landry. I think he may do great things there.
Dilfer right about spitball offense but so is Briles at Baylor. What do you think they are? by nature? We didn't have a good tight end. You going to take Sterling Shepherd out for Green or Grant?
As far as Landry he is better suited for what he will see at the Steelers.
The two best professional rookies in 2010 and both from Oklahoma City,Oklahoma.
Great question. Anybody have an idea as to how long a contract he may receive?
Great young man. I wish him the best.
