Gabbert should have gone to the combine. Is he really that good he could skip it ?? I know his agent has had other QB's skip, but in this case he should have gone and competed.
Quarterbacks skip the combine throwing drills all the time - it really means little if you throw or not, so long as you have a good pro day. The most important part of the combine involves the interviews and measurements and what not.
Whos elite in next years class besides luck and barkley(assuming either comes out). take away those 2 and next years class looks alot like this one if not worse.
A lot of people really like Landry Jones. Others like Nick Foles (not really me but hey!). Who knows who will come on, too - nobody thought Luck would look like Luck did at the start of this year. Not saying any of these guys other than Luck could go in the top 5, but that's exactly the point. There very well could be first round talent that goes a bit later in the draft.
