I wonder if all these Gabbert jock riders have even watched him play. He's wildly inaccurate and makes Brett Favre like crazy decisions at key points during the game. Thows the wild interception that kills your team and loses the game. This is the most overrated guy I've seen on the WZ. What do people like? That he is 6'5"? It certainly can't be the decision making or accuracy.
Credibility when it comes to objectively assessing the potential of Blaine Gabbert:
1.) Resident webzone critic, football fan and Jake Locker fanatic, SanDiego49er?
2.) Highly respected professional college football/NFL draft analyst, Mike Mayock?
Hmmm, that's a tough one...
As the whole season played out I would say Locker has some work to do. And I wouldn't pick him real high at this point. But he has upside and athletic ability.
With Gabbert I don't see consistent accuracy or decision making. I think he's way overrated due to a weak QB class.
I don't see it as a weak QB class. You don't see 4 QBs being considered in the first round in 'weak' QB classes. You don't see as many as 10 QBs considered in the first few rounds in 'weak' QB classes.
The top guys are weak. I don't see many superstars in this class.
That doesn't matter. Just cuz there isn't ONE HUGE SAVIOR doesn't mean its a poor Qb class. I bet you hated the Aaron Rodgers and Joe Flaccos too. There will be at least 2 good Qb's 1 being real good that come out of this years draft just like every other, I just hope we have the coach who finds him, cuz we all know he's out there.
I didn't hate Aaron Rodgers and I don't now. I bet you are one of those guys who wants to jump in the time machine and change 2005... We have to go forward. There is no rewind button in life.
Flacco is not that great. His defense backing him is phenomenal year after year and they have a real solid run game. He's about on par with Alex Smith. Flacco is not really that good.
Sure there could be a good QB in this class. It's a matter of luck to pick the right one. But I trust Harbaugh's instincts on this one. You also need to get a bit lucky to have that person fall to #7. Nothing says the first 6 can't pick that one good guy whoever he is.
Joe Flacco career numbers (3 years - 48 games played):
TD passes: 60
Passer rating - 87.9
Alex Smith career numbers (6 years - 54 games played):
TD passes: 51
Passer rating - 72.1
Those #'s are somewhat skewed by the terrible beginning Alex had. But he's been better since then. I'd say he's about as good as Flacco now. Not they way he started but now.
