The gist: former Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert and his agent Tom Condon decided Gabbert, a throwing quarterback with underrated “wheels,” would not participate in the throwing portion of the NFL combine in April, instead electing to particpate only in running excercises.
The reasoning? According to SB Nation, CAA (Condon/Gabbert’s agency) does not believe participating would elevate Gabbert’s draft stock “head and shoulders” above Cam Newton’s. So, of course, they decided to put Gabbert up against Newton’s legs..you know, those legs that led him to a Heismann Trophy and National Championship.
