After first considering going into the new NFL season with just two quarterbacks on its game day roster, the St. Louis Rams decided on Monday they needed to a veteran to also backup new starter Shaun Hill.
The Carolina Panthers, who have the draft’s top choice, sent several representatives. Coach Ron Rivera was scheduled to attend but did not.
Gabbert said he, Washington’s Jake Locker and Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett all are competing with Newton to be the first quarterback chosen.
Missouri’s Blaine Gabbert, Auburn’s Cam Newton, Washington’s Jake Locker and Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett are considered the top prospects.
