Gabbert was much better as a sophomore. The Combine starts on February 24.

was he only a one year starter or what? I hate to hear about these types of QBs that come out of nowhere and get a lot of hype. Hopefully the Cards take him

I maintain, no quarterback is first found caliber. Maaaybe end of first, but teams need quarterbacks and will ignore all logic.

It's amazing how a player's stock rises and falls without so much as a practice session to cause a change in opinions.

That's because Mel Kiper is a moron who needs something to write about so he creates fluff pieces precipitating the rise and fall of _______(insert hot name here) based off of seemingly nothing.

That said, no thanks on Gabbert.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock considers Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert a top-10 pick: "I think he's a franchise guy," he said.

He couldn't put up big numbers in an offense that makes it easy for that, his average per completion is low, his last 7 games he had 6 Tds and 6 Ints and he has never really had to read defenses... Yet somehow he is going to be a franchise QB? I dont see it.
Fans can't too hyped up or down on any one opinion from a writer, draftnik, etc. At the same time Gabbert is supposedly heading down the board, Mel and McShay, have him number one on their QB boards, and it appears as if the consensus is that Gabbert and Newton are vying to be top 5 picks.

As stated before in another thread, the campus workout is going to be everything for him, and there is no reason to believe that neither Gabbert, nor Newton, is going to falter.

In an unstable year of volatility at the QB position due to the CBA impasse, it seems more logical to me that top rated QB's have greater value in the draft to QB starved teams. For instance, there is no guarantee that the Cards will be able to have on their roster in 2011 a QB like Palmer, Kolb, or McNabb, but they CAN control their own destiny by drafting a rookie QB in the first round.

If the CBA gets done early enough to let a free agency window open before the draft, then things may return to normal, as teams know what they have, and don't have going into the draft.
am gonna be pissed if this generic version of Alex Smith is picked by us while Patrick Peterson is still on the boards
hope the cardinals take him.

Very well said, MD.

As much as teams want to go about the draft in a "business as usual" manner, it's just not reality given the looming lockout. Specifically, if the lockout is still in effect during the draft, teams will have no choice but to select greatest need first, since they can't count on being able to sign/trade for a veteran that fits their system/scheme requirements (or at best, might have to seriously overpay to get a stop-gap veteran). And there's about 8-10 teams in the top 15 that need and could take a QB.

So in ordinary times, this current crop of top QBs (Gabbert, Newton, Locker and Mallett) might be better value in the 15-32 range, we'll see them go much higher this year out of sheer need.

Kinda off topic. But will teams be able to sign UDFA with no CBA? that's gonna leave a lot of guys in limbo.

REPORT: BLAINE GABBERT'S STOCK NOW SLIPPING
According to ESPN's Mel Kiper, Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert's draft stock has begun "slipping" heading into the Scouting Combine.
According to Kiper, Gabbert's fall has occurred after NFL teams did "more film work" on the underclassman's junior year. It's true that Gabbert did not dominate his competition in 2010, throwing for 16 touchdowns compared to nine picks and averaging an unimpressive 6.71 yards per attempt. Gabbert was much better as a sophomore. The Combine starts on February 24.

Like I have been saying Gabbert is not NFL Ready or 1st rd worthy.

His name alone should tell you that he needs to go undrafted!!
