Gabbert is overhyped.

Mayock has a man crush on that kid. He may be right about him, but it still troubles me that he has Locker as his number 2. I just don't see Locker as a franchise QB at all.

First he says that Gabbert is the only one that isn't going to throw and then goes on to say good things about him. Seems to me the fact that he isn't willing to compete on the same field with the other guys is a big knock in my opinion. It isn't like he is injured or anything else. Suggests he is afraid if he lines up with everyone else and can't control the situation he won't measure up.

Seems now that he has told everyone he likes Gabbert best, he is trying to justify his choice when Gabbert doesn't want to let it fly.

Exactly Locker has fallen off most folks board and likely won't even be a first rounder.

he lost some cred with me. what i dont understand is he screams look at the tape, and gabbert on film is not that good. he is alright but nothing jumps out, but him being scred to step up and make a pass with a defender in his face.

That bothers me too, especially after he criticized Cam without even bothering to watch his workout. He admits that Cam has a great arm and can make every throw, but he just assumes that Cam can't learn an NFL offense.

This is the same thing people were saying about Warren Moon when he was forced to go to Canada in order to play QB.

He's certainly peaked my interest. I just wish I could see more game tape of him. The only real game footage on youtube just shows him pooing the bed.

Only 16 TD's in a spread offense in College = pooing the bed pretty much every game. I think that loss to them (OU) is the one that pissed me off the most. OU handed it to them, Gabbert didn't do poo.

Yeah, I'm 50-50 on this guy. I think what Mayock showed was accurate - he's a smart kid that understands schemes and manipulating defenses. What worries me about him however is that he's very panicky. He never sets his feet, I think mostly due to nerves, and hence also has problems with accuracy. Don't think I would call him tough. I dunno, I'll see what happens in his pro day and his interviews. Newton also has a lot to prove though. I'm glad the FO is flying him in for a nice long talk, rather than just the 15 minutes you get at the combine.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
