Jaguars QB Coach: Blaine Gabbert would be Top QB in this Draft Class

Blaine Gabbert has been the NFL for two full seasons now. While his on the field play hasn’t exactly turned heads, the Jaguars now have a new quarterbacks coach. Perhaps a new opportunity for Gabbert to get his skills set.

If you remember, Gabbert left Missouri a year early to enter the NFL draft. His new qb coach Frank Scelfo made it clear that if Gabbert had stayed in school and was coming out now, he would be the top quarterback in this draft.

Per Florida Times-Union: “If you graded him out right now, this is his draft class. If he were coming out and the quarterback draft class the way it is, would he be the top guy taken? I think the answer is yes,” Scelfo said.

“Ask the scouting departments and the general managers around the league and I think you would end up with a yes on that. Basically at his age, 23, the number-one pick in the draft with two years of experience already under his belt. That’s pretty good.”

I’ll leave it to the draft experts to determine whether or not Gabbert would have graded out higher than any of the incoming rookie quarterbacks.

What I think Scelfo should be more concerned about, is making Gabbert play well in the NFL right now. Because up to this point in his career, he hasn’t done that enough.
