Gabbert needs to get his act together on the field, as he struggled throughout last season after being forced in early because of poor performances from Luke McCown.
To be fair, Gabbert didn't have much to work with. His only real weapons throughout the season were Maurice Jones-Drew and Marcedes Lewis.
However, he'll get more help this season. If Blackmon can get over his own issues, he'll become a huge target for Gabbert. New head coach Mike Mularkey will also help him develop and has already voiced his commitment to him.
A year isn't enough to judge how good he can be, but he has some catching up to do. His draft classmates have already made strides. Andy Dalton helped the Bengals to the playoffs last year, Cam Newton had a record-breaking season, and Jake Locker looks promising and is making push for the starting job in Tennessee.
