Default Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles, QB, University of Central Florida, 6'4" 230 lbs, Junior

only recently talk of Bortles declaring for 2014 NFL Draft. If he does he will spring to 1st Rd consideration.

Blake Bortles' Game Winning Drive Vs. Louisville , beating Teddy Bridewater, in Louisville

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsHSYdNv2C4

This is the kind of QB you want to have the ball in his hands late in the 4th Q or the last possession.

You can watch UCF and Bortles Friday night vs South Florida on ESPN @ 7:00PM

and

UCF and Bortles vs SMU, Saturday, Dec 7th @ 11:00Am on ESPN.

I really like Bortles but there have been many rumors that he will return for his senior year. He's currently rated as a late 2nd-early 3rd, which I think is a little low. If he went back for his senior year he could turn that into a sure fire 1st round grade.

If UCF ends up getting the BCS bid and he plays well in the bowl game he might decide to jump. I really like their RB Storm Johnson as well. He's also a junior.

Following the coverage of the exciting come from behind Temple win, this story on NFL Draft Scout came out about Blake Bortles. Most draftniks follow NFL Draft Scout and why all of sudden Bortles has become newsworthy.

I'm glad there are others that share the same love for Bortles that I have. He's not a finished product (not a single QB in this class is) but the poise and ability he shows under pressure and when the game is on the line is what makes me believe he is the BEST QB in this class should he choose to come out.

It bothers me that ESPN and other "draft experts" keep saying this is a deep QB class because the talent level sucks IMO. There is not a single QB available that can step up and lead an NFL team like Luck or RGIII did their rookie seasons.

And they barely mention Bortles name (which is good for us).

This is a deep QB class in the sense that there is potentially 8 or 9 guys that teams could fall in love with.

But I agree, this class lacks top tier talent and is severely overrated due to the need for QB talent for about half the teams in the league.

"All indications are that the redshirt junior will fill out pre-draft paperwork and submit it to an NFL Draft Advisory Board to gauge his status. The advisory board, comprised of NFL talent evaluators, will give Bortles an idea of where he might be drafted should he declare."

Louisville wins in OT vs Cincinnati, that means UCF and Blake Bortles will be going to a BCS Bowl.

It's BORTLES Day! Again! However it's 23 degrees in Dallas so I'm not expecting much other than the COLD to be a factor. I will be watching to see how well he handles the cold and the football. Turnovers could be a result of the weather.

Danny Kannel just said there are NFL teams that think that Bortles would be the #1 QB in this year's NFL Draft. Where have I heard that before? Not sure where Danny is getting his information?????

That just sounds insane. I cannot imagine a scenario where TB is not # 1. Nothing is 100% but this is about as close as it gets.
