A lot of people don't know much about Blaine Gabbert but when you do a little research on him you find out he really is the #1 QB of this class. Gabbert is a team leader who seems to have a really high football IQ. And his physical tools are underrated compared to the other 1st round QB Cam Newton.When looking at the QB class it comes under a lot of fire. And when Andrew Luck decided to go back to school many fans just shrugged off the class. But when you look at the new #1 QB Missouri's Blaine Gabbert you actually find a great team leader. At first look at Blaine you may question his title but you have to look at the whole picture. Here's a little more on him to give you guys a better look at one of the top QB's of the class.
For those who don't actually have much time watching him, give him a look.

Mizzou's Blaine Gabbert went up and used the blackboard to show his mindset, writing down the letters "FEPWDM," which means "for every person whoever doubted me," Gabbert said. Translation: Even though Gabbert came to Mizzou as one of the rare five-star guys and was called "five-star" by some of folks in the program early on, he plays -- and prepares -- like he always has something to prove. - Bruce Feldman IN$IDER
