We have another report connecting Cardinals to Blaine Gabbert

Getty Images

We noted 10 days ago a couple of smart reporters who believe the Cardinals prefer Blaine Gabbert to Cam Newton, should the team take a quarterback with the No. 5 overall pick.

In the meantime, the Bidwills have personally attended a private workout for Gabbert in Missouri.

In the strongest sign yet that Gabbert could be ticketed for the desert, SI.com’s Peter King writes Monday that Gabbert “will not get past Arizona.”

King hears the Cardinals aren’t fond of Cam Newton, although we suspect it won’t really matter.   Newton seems unlikely to get past Carolina, Buffalo, and Cincinnati in succession.

  1. That’s why the Cards are not fond of Newton: he won’t be there when they get on the clock. How can a team with no franchise QB, be picky?

  2. Denver would have much greater ammunition to trade that #2 slot with a CBA in place …

    They’re sitting in the power slot ahead of Buffalo, Cinci and Arizona

  3. There is one thing that Whisenhunt cannot live with that causes him to ignore even the highest level of talent and skill: a player who expresses confidence in his skills. Example: Beanie Wells. All it took was for Beanie before he began his rookie season was that he expected to be the missing piece that would help the Cardinals win it all, and ever since he has been on Whisenhunt’s bench list, playing behind a runner (Hightower) who averages MAYBE two yards a carry. QB may be a concern, but I sure hope he keeps his mouth shut, whoever he is, when he gets here, and doesn’t ruffle the coach’s Super-sized ego.

  4. This dude looks like a clone of Leinart. AZ should pass on a QB this year and wait for a better draft class next year. Bruce Gradkowski could get them there. Just a thought.

  5. @dwoofer…

    The only problem with your analysis is that every time Beanie touches the ball he fumbles it or falls down at the line of scrimmage trying to make a cut. He’s a joke of a RB at this point in his career and is looking more and more like a bust, even after being picked late in the first round.

    All i hope is Lions Get Tyron Smith, or Prince. Hope they are both not gone by #13.

    The only Prince that will be left when the 13th pick comes around is Prince Rogers Nelson; you know the little purple dude that had a few hits back in the day.

    Their is no way the Prince you speak of is getting past Dallas or Washington if he is available.

    jerry is on record as saying he does NOT believe the secondary is an issue and that it was wade phillips handling of the defense that made the secondary look terrible…plus he’s been very open about how intriguing peterson is as a play maker (which he is) but hasn’t said much of anything on Prince (actually some reports that he liked brandon harris and jimmy smith better anyways) so i’d just be shocked if dallas took Prince.

    on washington…they just have a lot of needs much greater than CB…no QB, no RB, no WR, no OL, no DL…not sure they take a CB at #10 with names like Locker, Mallett, Jones, Watt, Jordan, Ingram, Tyron Smith, Quinn all very likely to still be on the board.

    I’d be more concerned on houston grabbing him, but if positional value wins out there at #11 a pass rusher like Quinn or a DL prospect (converting to a 3-4 need personnel) likely wins out.

    just saying based on other teams area of needs against the talent available at positions that hold a greater positional value draft wise…there is certainly a possibility Prince falls to #13…again I don’t think its “highly likely” but still a decent probability

  9. It’s a smoke screen…

    Cards will be going after one Bulger, Palmer or McSooup

    The pick WILL be Von Miller or PP7 – bet on it.

    I’ve followed the Cardinals daily for over 14 years now….painfully…but I can tell you this is nothing more than a smoke screen.

    According to SI.com’s Tony Pauline, the Cowboys are “not in love” with Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara and “wont use the 9th selection” to draft him.
    Per Pauline, “all signs continue to point to an offensive tackle” at the No. 9 overall pick. The Cowboys have shown significant interest in USC OT Tyron Smith, who played right tackle for the Trojans and could book end Doug Free at the same position in Dallas. If the Cowboys opt to trade down, Wisconsin’s Gabe Carimi “sits atop their wish list,” according to Pauline.

  11. @ Suhnami

    Keep dreaming, but if Peterson and Miller are gone the 49ers will take him or Dallas or Houston. Jerry Jones is just saying that.

    SO is that the Jerry Jones that told Randy Moss he was going to draft him

    or

    The Jerry Jones that told T.O. that he would be a Cowboy for the rest of his career?

  13. Why don’t we all wait until we see who Tom Condon chooses as his next client and just jump on his bandwagon like those in the elite media. Talk about having some clout. Matt Stafford, Sam Bradford and now the weakest of them, all Blaine Gabbert.

    ESPN and their ilks have underminded and weakened this years batch of QBs so much just to help Blaine’s stock that everyone is wanting any other position for their team but a QB. U can tell how pathetically weak this kid is. His two years at Mizzou was barely better than Cam’s one year at Auburn and his junior year was a measely 16/9 in 12 games…u do the math…, and he’s who those in the elite sports media is rooting for this year to go off the draftboard first.. based on what? A Pro-Day that ESPN wouldn’t even televise live on the internet like they did Cam Newton..Damn, that Tom Condon guy must got some serious pull in the sports media.

  14. Nothing against the Lions I hope they are playoff contenders soon…but, let’s not get carried away
