Blaine Gabbert (born October 15, 1989) is an American football quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League. He was drafted in the first round as the tenth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He played college football at Missouri before leaving early for the NFL after his junior year.

Gabbert was born in Ballwin, Missouri and attended Parkway West High School, where he played high school football. He recorded 623 passing yards and five touchdowns as a senior, despite an injured foot that limited him to four games. As a junior, he posted 1,523 yards and 20 touchdowns (on 119-of-231 passing) and also added another 458 yards rushing and 8 TDs. In his sophomore season, he threw for approximately 1,100 yards and 11 touchdowns as a first-year starter. He was named the number one quarterback heading to college by pro college scouts.

Coming out of high school in 2008, Gabbert was considered a major college recruitment prospect. Rated as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Gabbert was listed as the number 1 pro-style quarterback in the nation. He initially gave a verbal commitment to the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, but rethought his decision after head coach Bill Callahan was fired. He eventually committed to the University of Missouri.
