Clayton: Gabbert last in QB rankings

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- ESPN senior NFL writer John Clayton took some time away from his Chinese food and heavy metal music to rank the league’s quarterbacks.

Blaine Gabbert comes in at No. 32, one spot behind Mark Sanchez.

However, Clayton does say Gabbert -- who has completed 53.8 percent of his passes and thrown for 3,876 yards, 21 TDs and 17 INTs -- does have the potential to rise up the rankings. Here’s what Clayton wrote:

Analysis: Maybe there is hope for Gabbert. After two years of poor play, he showed a better ability to move the ball in his first two preseason games. That allowed him to legitimately beat out Chad Henne for the starting job. He got rid of the ball quicker and was more efficient throwing downfield.
