Gruden and Gabbert breaking it down

By Pat Yasinskas

We’ve already shown you video clips of Jon Gruden and Cam Newton in Gruden’s QB Camp here and here.

Newton is one possibility for the Carolina Panthers if they choose to go with a quarterback at No. 1 overall in the draft. But Missouri’s Blaine Gabbert also is believed to be another possibility.

In this clip of Gabbert in Gruden’s QB Camp, Gruden asks the quarterback how he would adapt to the NFL after playing in a spread offense in college in which he usually lined up in the shotgun formation.

Gabbert gives a pretty solid answer, saying he threw the ball a lot in college and, with some adjustments, can do the same thing in the NFL.

By the way, you can check out the full 30-minute programs of Gruden with Newton and Gabbert at ESPN U. Newton’s segment airs Monday at 7 p.m. ET. Gabbert’s spot is scheduled to air in the same time slot Wednesday.
