  • Locker vs. Gabbert

    Depending on what happens with Cam Newton these two guys may be an option for several teams needing a QB. Both guys seem to be smart, leader types who probably developed a few bad habits that will need to be corrected at the next level, such as pulling the ball down and running a little prematurely at times. Some numbers:

    Jake Locker, 6-2 1/2 231 lbs. combine numbers: 4.52 40 (twice), 35" vertical, 10' broad jump, 4.12 short shuttel, 6.77 3cone.

    Blaine Gabbert, 6-4 1/2 234 lbs. combine numbers: 4.62 & 4.64 40, 33.5" vertical, 10 ft broad jump, 4.26 short shuttle, 6.84 3 cone.

    Jake Locker stats;

    2009, 58.2% 21 to 11 tds/int
    2010 55.4% 17 to 9 tds/int

    Blaine Gabbert stats:

    2009, 58.9% 24 to 9 tds/int
    2010, 63.4% 16 to 9 tds/int

    Personally I'd rather have Locker but I'm guessing almost every team has Gabbert above him on their boards. Really in terms of public perception the biggest thing seperating them is the fact that Locker was a consensus top 3 pick last year but failed to improve this year, where as Gabbert has risen fromn hype out of nowhere and has a buzz around him. If Gabbert was touted as a top pick prior to last season and performed as mediocre as he did this season no one would be even mentioning his name as a possible top pick.

      Pretty much. They have similar flaws, but Gabbert's aren't correctable in my opinion. He's downright terrified of getting hit, and that problem is only going to be exacerbated in the NFL.

        I didnt get how Gabbert was all of a sudden pushed to the top of the list by analysts, it was probably more of a protest vote against the others. i'm a Locker guy but Gabbert so far as acquitted himself well in the whole process.

          Gabbert basically has risen by laying low. Locker in the spotlight failed to be consistent, and Cam has had a slurry of problems. Basically by not throwing at the combine and doing well in interviews Gabbert has been able to seduce scouts from actually breaking down his game film and seeing his horrendous passing beyond 5 yards. When you consider he's from a spread I wouldn't want him for the Skins at #10. He is big and mobile with good short accuracy but I don't think he's worth the risk. IMO Newton and Locker are worth the risk for different reasons one common reason being they are out of this world athletes, Gabbert I just don't like.

            Ugh more Locker threads. Care to recap the last ten?

            - Regressed majorly in a single year
            - Went 4/20 not even sleeping with your sister compares
            - Plays poorly against higher competition
            - Extremely inconsistent
            - Indecision
            - Questionable field vision

            Not all of those are my personal opinion although I do have him below both Mallett and Gabbert.

              they both take a lot of flack for their play but IMO the are the 1 and 2 QBs in the draft. Id put locker ahead of gabbert since he did play in a pro style offense but gabbert isnt fair behind

                Gabbert still scares the living crap out of me. The tape on him this year is downright ugly.

                      Andrew Luck opted out of the draft after Gabbert opted in. That tells you all you need to know.

                            Neither are great... but I have to crack up at the "stats" comparison. You know better than that Bab. ;)
