It is not bashing him it is is true. The guy has so many negatives against him there is no way he should be considered a top flight QB prospect. And no you do not take a QB #1 overall just because! Even the guys putting him at one admit to him not being a top ten prospect here. Most even say he is not the best QB in the draft. So you are passing on at least 10 guys that are better prospects for a guy that can't play for at least 2 years maybe more. If you can say that then why put him #1 overall to a team that just drafted a project QB last year? And for that matter if so many have Gabbert on top why no predictions with him? Do the math.
Personally I have yet to hear a good reason why he should be #1
overall. Tell me he has the "it" factor and is a winner all you want. None of that means he can play as a pro. Danny Wuerffel had the "it factor" too and it didn't help him a whole lot. Great athlete just not a great pro QB prospect. I still say it is stupid to jump on a guy just because he can sell jerseys in the south and that is what we are talking about here. If he goes #1 it will not be because of great talent it will be a move to make money and I get that. He is not some rare community there are guys with his ability in almost every draft now. Terrelle Pryor is a very similar player and will likely be a 3rd or 4th rounder next year. Last year you had Tebow. Take is as you may but there is really nothing all that special about him IMO. It would be like drafting Usain Bolt in the 1st to play WR.
