In the most recent mock over at WalterFootball.com, the issue of where Blaine Gabbert falls is a source of contention throughout the top 10. Specifically, as the author sees it, Gabbert just isn’t worth all of the hype that makes him, at this point, the probable top QB selection in the draft. Note what he writes:
Blaine Gabbert, the supposed best of the bunch, has major accuracy issues. That’s not good for a West Coast offense. Yet, because of his size, arm strength and upside, Gabbert is widely considered to be a top-10 prospect. I give up.
In the end, Gabbert falls to No. 10 to the Redskins after consideration by Arizona, Cincinnati and others — but even at this spot they aren’t sold. The forums at WalterFootball.com aren’t any better with a very divided audience going back and forth over Gabbert’s credentials. Chances are, this won’t be the last you hear on the issue.
