Mel Kiper Tabs Blaine Gabbert As A "Breakout Rookie"

As we've detailed extensively, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has struggled in his first six starts and has seemingly gotten worse. Through the first eight games however, the Jaguars had one of the toughest schedules in the NFL. After the bye week, the Jaguars have one of the easier schedules in the NFL. Coupling with that, I think the bye week offered a good spot for Gabbert to kind of "reset" and refocus. ESPN's Mel Kiper also tabs Gabbert as a second half break out rookie.

5. Blaine Gabbert, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

"I know it seems odd to have Gabbert here given all the reps he's seen, but I think he has a chance to play a lot better in the second half as he gets more comfortable. Among the rookie QBs, he's playing with the weakest group of pass-catching targets, and also hasn't seen very good protection; he's looked bad against the rush. He can show better accuracy if he can settle down."

Hopefully, we're right.
