    The Trib (Dave Matter): Spring Practice No. 1: QB derby begins

    For each practice report I’ll offer some armchair analysis of a specific position group. Naturally, we’ll start with QUARTERBACK where James Franklin, Ashton Glaser and Tyler Gabbert are competing for the top job left open by Blaine Gabbert’s move to the NFL. As expected, the three QBs took turns working with the top three units during team passing drills, which on Tuesday included a rapid 7-on-7 session. Proceed reading with caution, but with such a crucial position battle, I’ll do my best to post some approximate-but-unofficial stats from these passing sessions. But keep in mind, these are just from my observations. By my count, during the 7-on-7 drills, Franklin completed 14 of 18, Glaser 9 of 15 and Gabbert 6 of 12. in general, Franklin looked especially smooth delivering the ball, especially the slants and seam routes to inside receivers. But once Glaser and Gabbert got going, they were just as accurate. At one point, Glaser completed 9 of 10 throws.

    "I think they all looked good," Moe said. "Tyler threw me a really nice ball on the sideline with Zaviar" Gooden "right on my back. He tossed it out far enough just out of" Gooden’s "reach. Ashton threw me a touchdown over the middle and James was making all kinds of throws. I wouldn’t say one guy’s really far ahead of the other."

    PowerMizzou: Spring ball begins

    A couple of guys that physically impressed me were Michael Sam, who looks much bigger and quick, and Webb, who had more speed than I remembered. Jimmie Hunt looked to have a lot of wiggle and elusiveness in passing drills. But no player physically stood out more than Kony Ealy, who dominated his men in one-on-one passing drills while I watched. In fact, one time, he got to the tackling dummy so quickly that the GA who catches snaps couldn't get out of the way. Ealy took down the pad and the coach. With Marcus Malbrough out injured, Ealy will have a chance to make his mark.
