Chad Henne may have the arm strength, the slight nod in accuracy and have played in the league longer, but Blaine Gabbert has more potential.
A big reason comes from Gabbert being more careful with the ball and still having more time to develop.
Last season the Jacksonville Jaguars finished dead last in passing offense and only managed to average 136 passing yards per game.
As previously mentioned, though, Gabbert literally had no presenting targets that forced a defense on its heels or a guy who could derive attention from the running game. Still, Gabbert compiled over 2,200 yards and had 12 touchdowns to 11 picks.
Henne has yet to play a season where he throws more touchdowns than interceptions. In 2009, he had 12 touchdowns to 14 picks (first season as a starter, technically his rookie campaign) and a year later, threw just 15 touchdowns to 19 picks.
Lest we forget about Henne's durability, which although can happen to anyone, some quarterbacks are just less fortunate. Gabbert has the mobility to remain healthier longer, and throwing more touchdowns than picks as a rookie is worth noting.
Especially when you look at the differences between Jacksonville's and Miami's receiving corps last season.
