  • Blaine Gabbert Scouting Report
    By Greg Cox

    Strengths:
  • Quick release and fluid throwing motion
  • Top shelf arm strength and velocity
  • Ideal NFL frame
  • Relatively mobile for his size
  • Able to properly lead receivers
  • Very accurate with short range throws



    Weaknesses:
  • Product of spread offense
  • Must learn to go through progressions
  • Limited experience under center
  • Needs to work on pocket presence
  • Only two years as starter

    Summary: Blaine Gabbert decided to strike while the iron was hot, declaring for the 2011 NFL Draft on the heels of Andrew Luck returning to Stanford. His choice could pay off because instead of potentially competing with Luck and USC's Matt Barkley next year, he joins a weak, generally inexperienced (like himself) draft class this year. If that leads to him being selected in the top 10, he will have made the right decision. His junior season was less successful than his sophomore campaign, and ended with an ugly pick six that cost Missouri the Insight Bowl against Iowa.

    Player Comparison: Kerry Collins. Both players possess the size you would draw up for an NFL quarterback and the arm strength to get the ball down the field. Collins does not take too many sacks, and the same could be true for Gabbert if he pairs his mobility with a little pocket awareness.
