2011 NFL Draft: Volatility of Blaine Gabbert's Stock Seen In Recent Mocks

CBS Sports unveiled their latest mock drafts from sportswriters Pete Prisco and Chad Reuter and both have Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert heading to the Buffalo Bills with the third overall choice in the draft. This comes after recent mocks where Gabbert slides below other QB choices — Cam Newton — and lower in the top tier.

For Prisco, it comes down to the bad weather and the good arm of Gabbert: “They’ve been trying to replace Jim Kelly with a franchise leader for years. Now they can with a strong-armed quarterback who can handle the weather of playing outside in Buffalo.”

Reuter agrees with the placement and sees Gabbert as the most well-rounded quarterback available, making it the right choice, “If not, Gabbert represents the best all-around skill set in the QB class and also has the fewest question marks.”
