Gabbert is kinda the #1 by default but only because there are serious quesion marks next to the rest. He has got a big arm, but tends to loop a lot of his passes. Slow footwork and has little poise in the pocket. Good short accuracy, able to send the ball for miles, but isn't incredibly accurate beyond 15 yards.
Newton is all potential, so unless he kills his pro days etc I wouldn't want to invest a top 10 pick on him. Amazing athleticism, questionable pocket footwork and absolutely no experience in what he will be asked at the next level. Has never been forced to make difficult reads because teams generally did everything they could to stop him running.
Locker is an enigma, not really sure he has the accuracy or ability to read defences to warrant a high draft pick. However he is a true dual threat QB who was coached to try to get him to be a pass first QB, which worked last season, not so much this season. He has the big arm and the athleticism of Newton, but also the coaching to try to develop him as a QB. He just hasn't been as effective as Newton in either area.
Mallett is a prototypical QB, not much mobility, massive arm, decent vision and moderate reading ability. However he isn't a leader, has been in trouble with the police and early in his collegiate career showed little interest int he film room.

He isn't in the draft, is "damaged" goods, and is actually appealing to the NCAA for a sixth year, but---far off in the distance---I've still got my eyes on Case Keenum.
I love his weekly top 40.

I don't see our QB situation as much better than last year, unless somebody steps up. I feel ambivalent about Green, Peterson, and Fairley at #1; sullen about the rest of the possibilities. The ghost of Luck will haunt us all year.
