2011 NFL Draft: Blaine Gabbert's NFL Combine Will Be Important

Missouri Tigers QB Blaine Gabbert is viewed as a candidate for the top overall pick in various 2011 NFL mock drafts we've seen. His star has really shot up with Stanford QB Andrew Luck announcing he would remain in school.

With someone like Gabbert who scouts may not know a ton about -- at least not as a top 10 pick -- the NFL Combine is very important. This is when many teams will sit down with him, talk with him and watch him throw and perform other drills.

Of course, if Gabbert's going to be a high pick he may not even work out at the NFL Combine. That's something he'll have to determine but I think he should. There's still something to be gained even if a bad workout would hurt him.

The NFL Combine is at the end of February so we'll hear in a few weeks if Gabbert decides to work out.
