Default Elway at Blaine Gabbert's Pro Day

First Locker, and now this. This is mass hysteria. Dogs and cats are living together, at this point.

Blaine Gabbert works out for scouts

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft2...ory?id=6228384

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Five head coaches and a Hall of Fame passer turned front-office executive joined scouts from every NFL team to watch former Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert as he worked out with a chance to be the No. 1 selection in April's draft.

The crowd at Missouri's pro day Thursday included Denver Broncos vice president John Elway and coach John Fox, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis and Ron Rivera of the Carolina Panthers, who have the draft's top choice.

Gabbert is a likely first-round pick and hopes to be the first quarterback chosen in the April 28 draft ahead of Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, Washington's Jake Locker and Ryan Mallett of Arkansas.

This has to be one of the worst QB classes I can remember. The top prospects didn't even look very good in college. I really hope we don't take one.

I'm becoming worried that Elway is suffering from a case of "I'm the Boss" and "hold my Beer-watch this!"-

Yup. over half of the pre-draft work is in setting up the perfect smokescreen.

What I see is Elway learning how to scout. I honestly don't think he has any interest in drafting a QB this year, but he may very well be interested in drafting one next year, and the experience he is getting now will help him in the future.

Neither the Jets nor the ratbirds need a QB, yet they are scouting Gabbart too... why?

For argument's sake, with three teams right behind you possibly wanting a QB, giving an indication that you might be in the market, as well, would go a long way towards creating a feeding frenzy for your pick.

I hope that's all it is. Love for Tebow aside, none of these guys are very exciting with our (hopefully) once-in-a-generation high pick.

Oh please. So were Harbaugh (Ravens not 9ers) and Ryan. They're not ditching their QBs. There are OTHER players at MO's pro day other than Gabbert fellas.

Rex Ryan and John Harbaugh were there. Does that mean they were after a QB?

There's an elite DE at Missouri.

Taking either Newton or Gabbert with our #2 would lead to an instant meltdown of epic proportions. QB and WR are relative strengths for us right now.

Still, I like Elway looking at all options, and going through the motions. He is new to this, so going to these pro days, doing evaluations and comparing notes will only make him a stronger GM.

Exactly.

Nothing wrong with making someone picking below you a little nervous.

Pretty much how the Cards raped the Chuggers back in 1998 in the Leaf trade.

3-4

He'll be undersized in a 4-3 but could still be effective on passing downs with his speed.
