NFL Draft 2012: Landry Jones Returning To Oklahoma, Redskins Have One Less QB Option

The Washington Redskins will have one less option at quarterback when they pick No. 6 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft as ESPN's Joe Schad tweets that Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones will return to school next season.

Jones threw for 4,463 yards, 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions this season in leading the Sooners to a 10-3 record and victory against Iowa in the Insight Bowl. For his career, he's thrown for 12,379 yards, 93 touchdowns and 41 interceptions and was their heir to Sam Bradford at the helm of coach Bob Stoops' offense.

A projected first-round pick by some publications, Jones is slotted behind quarterbacks like Baylor's Robert Griffin III and Stanford's Andrew Luck. Returning to school could certainly help him improve his draft stock by getting some of those higher-rated names out of his path.

That certainly doesn't help the Redskins, though, who might not get a chance to select either Griffin or Luck with their drafting position.
