Blaine Gabbert, 10th Pick 2011 NFL Draft

Gabbert, Blaine Missouri 6043 234 4.62

Jacksonville Jaguars

Junior entry. Two-year starter. Right handed passer who is consistent
and accurate in his play. Gets the ball out of his hand quickly.
Sudden to “catch” and release. He sees it quickly and hits it quickly.
Can speed up his delivery under the pressure of a rush and keep his
accuracy. Carries the ball chest high or higher at all times. No
wasted motion to re-cock and throw. High overhand release.
Demonstrates good touch over the linebackers and in front of the
safeties. Generally throws a tight spiral with good velocity. High
RPMs, good rotation. Will use his eyes and pump fakes to move
the safeties. Athletic and mobile enough to extend the play. A
rhythm and timing passer. Plays in a pass first spread offense that
features slant routes, bubble screens, and quick outs. Will also step
into the deep passes downfield and put the ball between the numbers
on the receiver. A patient quarterback who spreads the ball around
to four, sometimes five different receivers. Accurate throwing the
skinny post down the seam. Deadly on the 18-yard out. Strong
enough to run quarterback draws in the red zone. Will tuck the ball
away and lower his shoulder going for the extra yard. A long strider
who can scramble for positive deep yards For the complete report see
