Missouri held its pro day on Thursday and Tigers QB Blaine Gabbert was the center of attention as scouts from many NFL teams showed up to see his first throwing session since the season ended. Gabbert isn't a senior so he didn't play in the Senior Bowl and he didn't throw at the NFL Combine.
Unofficially, he completed 44-of-49 passes, according to Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune. He threw to receivers from area schools since Mizzou doesn't have any draft prospects at receiver. Three of those five misses could be considered drops by the receiver.
Here are a few tweets from Matter on the workout:
Gabbert's QB coach Terry Shea very pleased with the workout. 23 throws were beyond 15 yds, 20 were thrown outside the numbers.
Gabbert talking with Marvin Lewis. Bengals coach was watching his throws closely
To clarify I asked Gabbert's agent if he's the safest pick among the QBs, over Newton and the rest. He said "not the safest, the best."
