2011 NFL Mock Draft: Blaine Gabbert To San Francisco 49ers

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft has come out with the second version of their 2011 NFL mock draft and Missouri Tigers QB Blaine Gabbert continues to look like a top 10 pick. Gabbert and Auburn's Cam Newton are among a few quarterbacks expected to be taken near the top of the draft.

Mocking The Draft has Gabbert going No. 7 overall to the San Francisco 49ers.

Although I'm not as high on Gabbert as some, this would be a good spot for him. It's only a slight reach for the 49ers to get a quarterback they hope will turn into a franchise signal caller.     

Gabbert is the first quarterback taken in this mock draft. Newton goes No. 10 to the Washington Redskins, where we've seen Gabbert land in other mock drafts.

The 49ers picking a quarterback makes sense. QB Alex Smith is not expected to return and I'm not sure they're sold on QB Troy Smith either. So it's possible there's a spot open for Gabbert, maybe even playing early.
