Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones is still undecided on entering the 2012 NFL Draft, but coach Bob Stoops has a good feeling.

I'm not sure about using the gut of Oklahoma Sooners coach Bob Stoops as a predictor. It's never steered me wrong, per se, but it's never really said something and later been proved correct, as far as I know. Still, it's the best gauge we have at the moment for quarterback Landry Jones' draft status.

To the Tulsa World, Stoops said:

My gut feeling is that he'll stay ... Landry's not sitting there basing his decision off what (other QBs) decide.

In's latest mock draft, Jones was picked No. 14 by the Seattle Seahawks. That was before Matt Barkley elected to return to the USC Trojans, however. And with Robert Griffin III still undecided, Jones could become a top-10 selection if he does decide to go pro.

Jones finished fourth in the nation in passing yards per game, but 33rd in passer rating. His performance with and without Ryan Broyles was striking, as the top receiver's injury knocked a wheel off the Sooners attack.
