Opposing Views

Blaine Gabbert, the Junior from Missouri, was drafted by the Jaguars as a junior. The Jaguars took a savory “bite” on his potential as Gabbert was not the All-Star in college that you typically see drafted in the top-10. Will the potential meet a significant reward or did we see all there is to see at Missouri? Time will tell.

Gabbert replaced star Chase Daniels before playing for two years. Let’s do a quick study. We’ll compare the last two years of both QB’s statistically.
