2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Blaine Gabbert, Mizzou

Blaine Gabbert -QB-Mizzou

6-5 235lbs Junior

Stats:

2009-  262-445  58.9%  3593 Yards 24 TD/9 INT 204 Rush Yards 3 Rush TD

2010- 60-79 75.9% 501 Yards 3TD/0 INT

Pros:

Blaine Gabbert is every scouts dream when it comes to tools.  His size is what you want in the NFL, 6-5 235 lbs. he can see the whole field.  He has a very strong arm, has the ability to throw the ball on the run very accurately.  His mobility is very underrated, can escape may a situation with his legs.  He is a great leader, proven by the fact that he played 4 games last year on a severely sprained ankle.  Looks the part, very well spoken during interviews.

Cons:

Blaine Gabbert has the tendency to throw the ball up for grabs when he feels pressure.  He might lock on to one receiver for periods of time as well.  Should avoid trying to fit the ball in to tight coverage. If it’s not there tuck and run or throw the ball away.

Thoughts:

Everything an NFL team could want in a quarterback.  Mizzou didn’t really have another option at the qb position when he hurt his ankle, so he played through that stretch, even if it wasn’t the best situation for him.  You have to respect him putting the team before anything else.

Projected Round:

If Blaine Gabbert decides to forego his Senior season at Mizzou, I could see him being a late 1st to mid 2nd round pick.
