The Carolina Panthers, owners of the top overall pick in next month's NFL Draft, will hold a private workout with Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert this weekend, a league source told NFL Network's Michael Lombardi on Wednesday.
Gabbert is scheduled to work out at Missouri's pro day Thursday, which will likely draw a large crowd hoping to get a closer look at the 6-foot-4, 234-pound quarterback who opted not to throw at February's NFL Combine.
Gabbert, the top quarterback on NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock's draft board, ran a 4.61-second 40-yard dash, a 4.26 short shuttle and 6.84-second 3-cone drill. He recorded a 33.5-inch vertical jump and 10-foot broad jump.
In three seasons at Missouri -- two as a starter -- gabbert posted 6,882 passing yards and 40 touchdowns.
Last season, he passed for 3,186 yard and 16 touchdowns and added 232 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
