he must have a ton of confidence!!!!


also the more tape i watch the more i am impressed.
I'm really tempted to do a mock with bortles as my QB but i think its too likely he returns next year. disappointing because all the QBs i like this year will probably not enter the 2014 draft

Bortles still has a chance to rocket boost his stock with a great showing in the Sugar Bowl against an SEC team (ala Bridgewater last year). I think it's more likely that he returns though.

Which is why the Texans shouldn't reach for a QB.

McShay started the season saying Stephen Morris was the Top QB in 2013.

bah007 is right, McShay is hack who studied journalism and is now masquerading very poorly as college scout.

If Bortles were to declare I would not be surprised if he were the first QB off the board.

If he has a great bowl game against a quality opponent, his draft stock would be super high. Top 5 kinda high maybe. Next years draft COULD have Winston, Mariotta, Hundley, and others. Maybe a lot of teams picking in top 10 not needing a QB. Watching video of him, I am very impressed. I'm not so sure he returns another year if draft stock is top 5 quality.

Who does he remind you of?

Default Re: Blake Bortles

Last week I entertained the idea of driving to Dallas this Saturday to watch Mr. Bortles play SMU. Old Man Winter will be attending with his friend 20 degrees. So Plan B is now in order. A Bucket of KFC's Weekend 10 for $10, the Big Easy, the remote and ESPN are now the plan of the day.

Saturday, December 7, 11:00 AM (CT) on ESPN

EDIT: Dadgumit KFC 10 for $10 was over and out 11/24. (Deciding on Plan C)

Plan C: A huge pot of Chili Mac is in order for the games and the coming Arctic Blast.

A more polished, but less athletic Ryan Tannehill.

How would you describe his arm strength?

His movement skills/acuracy look fine to me.

I think he has a good arm. He's not Matt Stafford, but his arm is certainly NFL quality. I've heard some people compare his arm to Luck because of his release, which is fine, but he doesn't have near the ball placement that Luck has.

He's athletic and throws great on the run too. He puts good touch on his deep ball, but can be inconsistent on his throw. I like his accuracy other than that.

Blake Bortles, QB UCF, 6'4" 230

BIO - http://www.ucfknights.com/sports/m-f...es_587127.html

STATS - http://espn.go.com/college-football/.../blake-bortles

2013 Performance - http://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/f...t/individual/8

Completion % = #10, .680
Passing Efficency = #7, 167.3
Passing Yards per Completion = #14, 14.3 yds

TD to INT Ratio = 3 to 1

Still has 1 game to play, Sat @ SMU

-against Jadevon Clowney and South Carolina 9/28: Eclipsed the 300-yard mark for the second time this season and threw for a career-high 358 yards while completing 25 passes with two touchdowns through the air

-In the win at Memphis, led UCF on a game-tying drive with 2:05 to go that lasted 15 plays and 80 yards

-Trailing 35-31 at Louisville, marched his team down the field on an 11-play, 75- yard drive that was capped off by a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Godfrey with 23 seconds left

-At Temple 11/16: Bortles completed the day 27-for-38 for a career-high 403 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. With his 403 yards, Bortles jumped into fourth place on UCF's all-time passing yards list with 6,500. The 403 passing yards were the 10th most in a single game by a UCF quarterback. Bortles also added a season-high 62 rushing yards on 11 carries


Personal Note: has several games this year (4) (Memphis, Louisville, Temple, S Florida) where he delivered a 4th quarter game winning/tying score including last second TD to beat Teddy Bridgewater in Louisville. Negative, turnovers has fumbled the ball or been stripped of the ball several times while in the pocket. Has good pocket awareness

You have to be careful with some of McShay's hype, he may be directed/doing it to gen up interest in an ESPN upcoming televised game. It just so happens UCF plays Sat @ 11:00AM on ESPN. Makes you wonder, scratch your head as to why McShay is all of sudden on the band wagon.

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.

UCF VS SMU 11:00AM ESPN

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.
