Walked into looking foolish earlier by basing your QB rankings on their one head to head matchup.

Bortles 7 INTS (2013)
Bridgewater 3 INTS (2013)

Just fyi, in that head-to-head matchup Bridgewater was 29/38 for 341 yards and 2 TD's. He also led a 4th quarter TD drive to take the lead with 3 minutes left. UCF scored to take the lead with 23 seconds left and won the game.

Yeah that is exactly my point. I dont base QB rankings off which QB scored last. Especially since TB took the lead moments before.

2014 NFL Draft: Rallying UCF in cold, Blake Bortles shows 1st-round form

Quote:
In guiding Central Florida to a 17-13 comeback win over SMU in frigid conditions, junior quarterback Blake Bortles provided evidence of his poise, toughness and ability to play well in the cold. These traits, along with awareness, accuracy, athleticism and size are key factors in why the junior quarterback is gaining traction as a potential first-round selection in the 2014 NFL draft.

The 6-foot-3, 230 pound Bortles was recruited as a tight end, and the size, strength and athleticism that initially led to this projection were on display in this contest as the junior showed off the functional mobility necessary for success in today's NFL.

While not an elite athlete, Bortles showed enough quickness and fluidity to run away from defenders when necessary. More importantly, he showed the vision and courage to step up in the pocket to exhaust his options before tucking it to run.

Bortles' thick, broad-shouldered frame has earned comparisons to everyone from NFL stars Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger to Tim Tebow. His build is a stark contrast to the slim frames of the other highly regarded underclassmen quarterbacks, most notably Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater (6-foot-3, 205), Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel (5-foot-11, 210) and even UCLA's Brett Hundley, who looks slimmer than his listed 6-foot-3, 222 pounds.

A year ago, the Buffalo Bills cited EJ Manuel's size and ability to play in the cold...

Default Re: Blake Bortles

Second game in a row I focused on Bortles only to be disappointed. He needs to return to school but with only having TB, Manziel, and Carr for top half of first he will come out. I could see him as a developmental guy to sit and learn but we need a starter at pick one. I rate Bridgewater well over Bortles.

Clarification: I expect Hundley to return.

Yes I watched the game. Did you? Hey you're the one judges QB's this way not me. Just pointing out that that is a really really really STUPID way to determan the value of ANY player.

I thought he looked really good in the second half. Especially considering the freezing weather.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

At this point, it pretty much seems like a slam dunk that Bortles will be taken in the top 20. I think he's either the 2nd or 3rd QB off the board.

If he waited til next year he is probably still the 2nd QB off the board because Winston is the likely #1 pick.

No reason not to come out.

It helps us if he does. It gives us another guy to evaluate for our pick. And if we don't like him enough maybe someone else does and we can use him to trade back.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

This is why the Houston Texans should strongly consider Blake Bortles as their next QB and their future answer to Andrew Luck;

"Oviedo coach Wes Allen was on vacation in August 2009 when he got a call from his quarterback, Blake Bortles. The then-high school senior told Allen he was going to commit to UCF and asked one favor of his coach.

"'I'm committed,'" Allen recalled Bortles saying. "I don't want any other distractions. I don't want to hear from other teams during the season. The only thing I'm focused on now is Oviedo."


and

"Rob Bortles, Blake's father, said the family will not weigh any draft decisions until after the Fiesta Bowl in order to avoid distractions going into the season-ending game."

Default Re: Blake Bortles

As I suggested, as I predicted, I said don't believe all that media hype, NFL draft boards will disagree with the media about Teddy being the #1 pick......and so it begins:

"On Sunday night on NBC's Football Night in America, Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King said Bortles is the top quarterback on the board for some NFL teams".

"The fastest rising quarterback in the first round, should he choose to come out, is fourth-year junior Blake Bortles of Central Florida," King said. "I’ve spoken to a team that’s likely to have a top 10 pick, and they like him better than any quarterback in this draft.”

The tide begins to turn, y'all are not surprised because you were forewarned...stay tuned.
