Gabbert answers questions about accuracy

Published on March 17, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Six NFL head coaches, including four whose teams have picks among the top eight in next month’s draft, showed up here at Missouri’s pro day seeking answers to a few questions concerning quarterback Blaine Gabbert, most notably his deep-pass accuracy.

Gabbert couldn’t have done better had he borrowed Drew Brees‘ right arm. All the questions about his accuracy should start to go away after his workout in front of approximately 125 scouts, coaches and GMs.

He threw 50 passes, only one of which was uncatchable — a “go” route he overthrew to the left on his 36th attempt. He had one other pass, a deep post, that probably would have been intercepted in an NFL game. Other than those two passes, he showed remarkable accuracy at all points on the field. He also showed how athletic he is, good velocity on his passes, and an ability to get the ball out of his hand quickly.

His workout was outstanding — much better than Cam Newton’s at Auburn’s pro day on March 8. Newton had six passes that were uncatchable at his workout, although it was outdoors in windy conditions. I wrote after Newton’s workout that he should go No. 1 to the Panthers. I’m not so sure now.

Personally, I don’t think you could go wrong with either one of the quarterbacks. As Bucky Brooks explained in his War Room Debate comparing the two, it’s going to come down to the scheme each QB-needy team runs and which quarterback is the better fit.

The head coaches who were in attendance included Denver’s John Fox, Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis, Tennessee’s Mike Munchak, San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh, Minnesota’s Leslie Frazier, and the Jets’ Rex Ryan. It was the largest contingent of head coaches to show up at a pro day this year.

Other notables in attendance included Buffalo GM Buddy Nix, Tennessee GM Mike Reinfeldt and offensive coordinator Chris Palmer, and Lions GM Martin Mayhew.
