So I know a lot of people have Bortles pegged as having a very strong arm, but I seem to be missing it. I have watched the majority of his cut ups on draft break down and I am not seeing that he has an exceptionally strong arm, actually appears average to me. Do people see his size and weight and just assume he has a strong arm because of his size?
Take this throw for example against Conneticut, he has a guy open deep and although he threw it far, the ball kinda just hangs up after it finishes arching. He doesn't "put the ball on a rope" and it falls incomplete
