Why Gabbert isn’t throwing

Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert isn’t throwing here at the combine and explained why.

“My agent is Tom Condon of CAA and Tom’s philosophy in the past is not having quarterbacks throwing at the combine,” Gabbert said. “I trust him with his advice and we have a plan set up and I’ll be throwing at my pro day on March 17th.”

Gabbert is one of the few QBs not throwing here in Indy, but he pointed to QBs that came before that chose not to throw here and went on to have successful careers.

“Of course Sam (Bradford) had his injury to his arm and didn’t throw until his pro day. Matt Ryan, Matt Stafford, these guys only selected to throw at their pro day and they were extremely successful in doing that,” he said. “It’s more of a controlled atmosphere. You have a script. I’m not shying away from competition or anything. I’m just throwing at my pro day and that was about it.”
