Blaine Gabbert #11 QB
Height: 6-4 Weight: 235 Age: 24
Born: 10/15/1989 Chesterfield , MO
Experience: 4th season
High School: Parkway West HS [Ballwin, MO]
Selected By: Jacksonville Jaguars
Pick (Overall): 10 (10)
Gabbert has it all physically, but has a long way to go before he's ready to lead an NFL offense. He played in a spread offense and will have to learn to take snaps under center and make progressions in the pocket. However, he is a smart football player that seems to understand coverages and he has the arm strength to fit the ball into tight windows. He is also very mobile and elusive in the pocket and shows the ability to make plays with his feet. Overall, Gabbert's tools will be too alluring for a team without a quarterback, and he seems assured to be a top-10 pick, maybe even the first QB off the board.
