I'm guilty of it as well sometimes. Sometimes you're trying to describe to someone how you see a guy physically and so you make that comparison. If someone thinks Bortles looks like Luck physically then that's fine. But I would never compare them like that as prospects. Luck was so much farther ahead in the mental aspect of the game and his ball placement is elite level.
It's the same as the Manziel/Wilson comparisons. Do they look similar physically? Yes. But they play nothing alike and Wilson was so much farther ahead in the game mentally and has a much better arm.
