Peter King, long time writer at Sports Illustrated, is back with his latest Mock Draft, and he has Cam Newton going #1 overall to the Panthers, which seems to be the growing trend. King has the Bengals taking QB Blaine Gabbert the QB from Missouri with the fourth pick. Here’s what he has to say about him.
Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
Whether they’ll admit it or not, the Bengals will look for a quarterback to succeed Carson Palmer. Gabbert, who rarely threw downfield at Missouri, isn’t as football-smart or as prepared to play in new coordinator Jay Gruden’s quick-decision passing scheme as some of the other quarterbacks coming out, like TCU’s Andy Dalton. Jones is a big, fast worker bee who’ll block like Hines Ward—a better fit for Cincinnati here.
