Blaine Gabbert Will Workout For Carolina Panthers, Who Hold Top Pick In 2011 NFL Draft

We noted earlier on Wednesday the rising number of people who are predicting Missouri Tigers QB Blaine Gabbert will be the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft so it's perfect timing for this report from Aaron Wilson of National Football Post:

The Carolina Panthers have scheduled a private workout for Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert for this weekend, according to sources close to the Tigers' program. Per the source, the Panthers are sending a contingent of personnel to Columbia, Mo., to work out the 6-foot-4, 234-pound quarterback.

This is not a surprise by any means. The Panthers will work out multiple candidates for the top pick, including Auburn QB Cam Newton, who is the only other quarterback people feel could be picked ahead of Gabbert. 

Gabbert's pro day is on March 17th where he'll throw for the first time in front of scouts. He did not throw at the 2011 NFL Combine.

We'll see what the Panthers brass thinks of Gabbert. They spent a second round pick on QB Jimmy Clausen last season but a new regime is in town, and Clausen didn't have the greatest of rookie seasons.
