That seems to be the key for many good QBs laying in wait.
I think the Steelers were hoping to get a steal with Jones but given their draft history since 2008 I doubt the rest of the league was so dumb that if Jones really was a long time starter he would have slipped to the 4th round. I know he looked good against Carolina in the 4th preseason game but that was against scrubs. But the only way to find out is to play him in a real game

If Ben gets hurt when the Steelers are around 4-9 in December it will be interesting to see if Tomlin decides to take a look at Jones.
