QBs are always valued higher than their true worth (especially ones with size/arm strength/mobility/accuracy), so #7 is not too high for someone like Gabbert. If this is the route we went, I would trust Harbaugh to not only work with Gabbert and show him how to be an NFL QB, but to create and offense that leverages his very obvious skills and talents (much like he did with Luck at Stanford, who was rated behind Gabbert coming out of high school).
My preference would be to go pass rush here, but if Gabbert is here, I have no problem taking him.
