He used a similar line of reasoning to suggest Newton as a #1 possibility a while back. Since both Kiper and McShay have Gabbert in the top five in their mocks, Yasinskas argues that if he's good enough to be in the top five, he might just be good enough for number one.
A lot of people would say Gabbert is a “reach’’ with the first overall pick and that may be true. But I’m wondering if Gabbert is good enough to go to a team desperate for a quarterback at No. 5, why isn’t he good enough to go to a team desperate for a quarterback at No. 1?
Franchise quarterbacks don’t come along often. As Carolina general manager Marty Hurney and new coach Ron Rivera work through all the scenarios over the next couple months, they’re going to be the ones who have to decide if Gabbert is a franchise quarterback.
My position is unchanged. I don't believe there are any sure fire franchise QBs in the draft. We've already got two "project" QBs and don't need another.
No quarterbacks in any round. None :nonod:
