However when you consider the timing of his career and put things in perspective you expect some of the these mistakes from such a young QB. The USC game came very early in his second year as a starter. Bortles was a much better QB as the year progressed. If he had returned for his Senior year as a 3 year starter he would be even better and clearly the #1 QB in the 2015 draft and discussed in much the same way Andrew Luck was.
Yeah, his pocket presence was really good. Similar to Manning it`s mostly small steps that really took the defender out of the equation. And I didn´t mean the Locker comparison in a bad way. Both are real good runners with strong arms, that have some problems with accuracy and decision making. Like bah007 said, a well coached Locker could be a real good QB.

The thing about Bortles is: he has all the tools and you like his ability to step up when the game is on the line. But he still has so much to learn when it comes to accuracy and decision making. Bortles really should sit 1 season behind a veteran. He could turn out to be a great QB, but he definetly is still a good way away from that.
