It wasn't just jrg. Pretty much all the experts liked Gabbert. I didn't understand it. Even in college he looked shaky and had major issues throwing past 10 yards. Pure product of the system. Chase Daniel was a better player than him, and went undrafted. Props to Joe Theismann. He was the only "analyst" I can remember that said this kid would not be good.
I never understood the Gabbert love affair either. Kid was never even all that good at Mizzou, the signs were there and it's not the least bit surprising to me that he's yet to transition into a serviceable NFL QB and has become a colossal bust. These same analysts probably slammed the Aldon pick for being a "reach"
. In hindsight, Baalke looks like a friggin genius for the 2011 draft. To find an elite pass rusher and a potential elite franchise QB in CK7 is a job well f*cking done.
