What is the "eye test"? Is that the test that made Tom Brady drop into the 6th round and made Vernon Gholston a lock top-10 prospect?
If you say a prospect has no shot to be successful just because you don't like the way he "looks" to you, then that is just as bad as me saying that a prospect is a lock to be a top-10 QB because of his stats in college.
Stats in college should be a baseline, or should bring up red flags for some other prospects. The stats show that Landry Jones fits the profile of successful NFL QBs, much more so than other prospects in this draft. Does that mean that he is a lock to be this in the NFL? No. But he should be given more weight than the other guys with the exception of Geno Smith and maybe EJ Manuel. He certainly shouldn't be dismissed as a 5th round prospect or worse.
