must be taken in the context of team concept, meaning all that sounds good but really not all on Teddy, only so much one player can accomplish given tools supporting his. watching Bortles right now. great developmental QB prospect, reminds me of Flacco coming out of Delaware. Has the size/mobility, strong arm but still learning position. Maybe if Keenum was more established & Texans could confidently head into next season with new coach/case as starter bringing in a plus talent to develop like Bortles would work but that seems a bit of a luxury now given circumstances.

It's very difficult to grade a QB into a specific draft slot range given teams propensity to reach for position, but if I'm stacking a big board & he declares early, could certainly place him in that #15#20 top prospect range.
