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.

I think you covered all your bases with that comment.

only one half but nothing to excite me. He seems to be "fluid" in the pocket and runs smoothly. Expected to see more against a 2-8 team.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

Bortles probably played his worst game this year. However true to form with ball in hand with 4 minutes left in the game, behind 16 - 20, Bortles leads team on game winning drive to win the conference championship and preserve a BCS Bowl game. With that said, earlier turnovers and poor team play lead me to think that Bortles along with Mariota and Hundley, all will return to school. UCF only has 8 seniors and 2014 offers a chance at the National Championship and a run at the Heisman. If Bortles has an All American game in the Sugar or Orange Bowl, then maybe he will declare but still doubtful.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

UCF redshirt junior QB Blake Bortles completed 17 of 26 attempts for 219 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in a 23-20 win over USF.
Bortles had a couple of less than stellar quarters, and while both of his interceptions were tipped, the redshirt junior did fumble and take multiple sacks when attempting to buy time in the pocket. We love Bortles' style, and he plays like a poor man's Andrew Luck. We doubt he enter the 2014 NFL Draft, however.
