Missouri head football coach Gary Pinkel spoke Friday morning about the selections of Blaine Gabbert and Aldon Smith in the first round of the NFL Draft.

The Tigers’ starting wide receivers — Wes Kemp, Jerrell Jackson and T.J. Moe — have a combined five years of experience as starters, and tight end Michael Egnew had a breakout All-America season in 2010. That experience can only help the team’s starting quarterback in 2011.
