I will say he looks the part, strong arm big kid. Better served by staying in school imo.
Very interesting. The advisory panel is generally pretty accurate too. I think he can improve his stock though, especially at the combine. Jake Locker, when healthy this year, actually looked like an NFL QB to me.

FYI - the advisory council almost always returns a non 1st Rd grade for any QB that does not have a minimum of 30 college starts. In Bortles case I think he has 28 or 29 cllege starts. The fact that he received a 2nd RD is actually very strong. A 3rd or 4th RD grade would have been reason for concern.

Good information, thanks. I was not aware.

We need the people in St.Louis to start talking up Clowney or whoever we expect St. Louis to take, to add more value to our pick.

Statements like the one you just posted adds more value to Cleveland's pick for anyone who wants Bridgewater. The guy they are currently selling as the best QB in this draft.

At some point in this process we will announce that we aren't necessarily taking a QB. We will say Clowney is a real option. It's all a chess game.

If Bortles goes No. 1 to #Texans as @dpbrugler predicts, #Rams would be silly to pass on Bridgewater at No. 2. Franchise changer.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

Don't want to sift through all the pages but I find the connection between Bill O'Brien and Blake Bortles pretty interesting.

- Saw him firsthand this season when Penn St. lost to UCF (who is coached by George O'leary)
- George O'leary hired Bill O'Brien to Georgia Tech in 1995 where they coached together through 2001

It's been said O'Brien comes more from the O'leary coaching tree than the Bilichick tree.... I'd suspect Bill has some conversations with his old pal George before the draft to get some "inside information" on a potential QB selection this draft.

Connect the dots....nobody in a better position to get the straight skinny from George O'Leary than Bill O'Brien. Well Done Ole Miss!

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound signal caller's movement skills and strength in the pocket remind us of Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger.

It's going to get harder & harder to decipher what is real & what is not the closer we get to draft day. One idiot tweets player X is a first round talent, then another, then another, then "people" start believing it & using said reports as evidence of Player Xs greatness.

I've never heard that Bortles reminded anyone of Andrew Luck & I don't see how someone can remind anyone of Luck & Roethlisberger simultaneously.

By this time next week I wouldn't be surprised if we see two more reports linking one of these guys to Bortles... then it becomes fact.

these links have been made for a while.

its more about his physical stature and his throwing motion that are similar.
No one is saying they are similar prospects in terms of talent.

this sums it up well http://fansided.com/2013/11/22/ucf-q...s-andrew-luck/

Draft experts end up saying contrary things and great things about everyone just to cover their bases so they cha say yep we knew to make themselves look good.
