OFFICIAL Blaine Gabbert Thread

Actually their receivers are worse, the only threat they pretty much have is Marcedes Lewis who only has 400+ yards receiving.

The 49ers receiving corps in 2005 was a sorry lot. Only Brandon Lloyd emerged later, but much, much later (2010.)

No oline, no defense, no weapons just a deserted land of nothingness.

I agree. The parallels are there except they have MJD.
Bump.

Blaine Gabbert Declares For The 2011 NFL Draft: 5 Reasons You'll love him
1. Experience

Blaine Gabbert has two full seasons of experience at Mizzou under his belt, a time frame in which he collected 18 victories for a Tiger team that was not all of that great throughout his career as a starter. Gabbert came to his home state University despite being one of the most highly sought after recruits in the country, and earned playing time right away. Prospects with Gabbert's level of experience are always hot commodities on draft day.

2. Toughness

Blaine Gabbert is no stranger to injury. Missouri's signal caller has played through a number of injuries throughout his career, including a severely sprained ankle suffered at the hands of Ndamukong Suh. Gabbert also battled a rib injury this season. He is as tough as nails and willing to take a hit in the pocket.

3. Gabbert Has All of the Tools (Arm Strength, Accuracy, Size Etc)

There is no debate that Blaine Gabbert has all of the tools necessary to be an NFL quarterback . He has a lazer arm, adequate accuracy, and great height and bulk for an NFL prospect a 6'5'' 235 pounds. Gabbert is athletic and makes smart decisions with the football (for the most part). His production has not always matched his elite physical tools, but he has the make up of a franchise quarterback.

4. Intangibles (Leadership, Confidence, Work Ethic, Intelligence)

In addition to his impressive physical measurables, Blaine Gabbert possesses a lot of the intangibles necessary to find success in the NFL. Gabbert played his best football in Mizzou's most important games. He led them to victories over Texas A&M and Oklahoma, and performed admirably in the Insight Bowl until that one misguided throw that led to Iowa's game winning touchdown. Gabbert relishes the spotlight and excels in clutch situations.

5. Someone Will Fall in Love with Him

We see it every year; A junior quarterback declares early and picks up steam throughout the combine and interview process becoming a first round pick in the process. Gabbert could be that guy in the 2011 NFL Draft. Blaine Gabbert will deliver eye popping results at both his combine workouts and his pro day, and I suspect he will knock the interviews out of the park with his high football I.Q. and charismatic personality.

I find it hard to believe that Blaine Gabbert would forego his senior season for his hometown team unless he had reason to believe he would be drafted in one of the first couple rounds. ESPN reports that some scouts have given him a first round grade. Gene Smith, the general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars, personally attended the Insight Bowl, and there is reason to believe Gabbert was on his list of targets.

Blaine Gabbert could here his name called on day one of the 2011 NFL Draft if his stock continues to pick up steam.

Drop all the Alex Smith 2.0 crap!!! This is ridiculous! This kid has a chance to be more of a Josh Freeman than Alex Smith! He played on a BAD Missouri team with no NFL talent at skill positions (similar to Matt Ryan coming out) and still led them to a great season.

He led them to a win over #1 Oklahoma and played in the BIG 12. To say that "Alex had better college #'s is an ignorant statement and is just not even trying to make a true comparison. He played at UTAH where his 2nd toughest opponent was the All Girl Mormon squad from 2 towns over! If you think: "Spread offense, white QB, wears #11 -- He's gotta be Alex!" than shame on you. Just take a minute to what everyone said when we interviewed Freeman 2 years ago (I think it's a much better comparison) and if we had a chance to do it over, he wouldn't have been available at #10.

If we take him and he works with Harbaugh (whom BTW I trust more than anyone on this board) he could see a Freeman/Ryan/Rodgers development and that is better than anything we've had in a long time. If he's there at #7 and Peterson is off the board, he should be the pick.

I love irony.
Holy s**t this must be embarassing for JRG. Good bump.
lol jrg
Edit - Double post. But still, embarassing as f**k for JRG.

Jrg don't know shhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeit!!!
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.




Gabbert gonna Gab

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.
