ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Former Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert is preparing to perform at the NFL Combine, which starts on Thursday in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium. However, the highly rated NFL prospect will not be participating in any of the throwing drills.

Gabbert will take part in every other drill, such as the 40-yard dash or the shuttle run, but will not be involved in any drills that require him to throw the ball.

That display of talent will be saved for the individual sessions that Gabbert will have with potentially interested teams. Those sessions take place after the combine leading up to the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 28 in New York City.

According to many NFL Draft analysts, Gabbert could be the first quarterback selected. As of now, Gabbert is the only QB that will not throwing at the combine. Other position players in the draft have made the same decision to just take part in the generic drills.
