Expected to be one of the top quarterbacks taken in the 2011 NFL Draft, Missouri Tigers QB Blaine Gabbert can expect to see himself on SportsCenter a time or two. On Wednesday, Gabbert will be on ESPN's SportsCenter as one of several players expected to be a top NFL draft pick.
The segment on Gabbert, a Parkway West product, centers on the time he spent at a training center in Phoenix that provides drills for prospects to improve their strength and speed, plus how he has prepared for the X's and O's part of his interviews with NFL personnel.
Gabbert is working with former Kansas City Chiefs QB coach Terry Shea who has also worked with Sam Bradford and Matthew Stafford, the last two No. 1 overall picks.
Obviously I think Gabbert will be a successful pro and his stint on ESPN today (and future stints to come) will hopefully show others the same.
