Default Re: Blake Bortles

If the Texans pass on Teddy B. and Clowney for Bortles I would be ok with that as I believe they would only take Bortles based on solid diagnosis and projection. Johnny Manziel seems better slotted at 2.1 than 1.1. I just dont see the same NFL prospect that others do. Sure he is exciting running around extending plays, but personally I need more NFL ready skills or traits.

1.1 Bridgewater/Clowney/Bortles
1.Trade Down Watkins/Matthews/Barr/Robinson

But Godsey/O'Brien have a good idea of Mallett's progression.


I realy don't care who the next QB of the Texans is, but I do want the trenches fixed. (Finally) I'm really looking forward to your reaction IF BO'B passes on TB. In a way I hope he trades for Mallett just to get to see your reaction to your HC disagreeing with your eval of that bum Mallett. (That would be true comedy)
We are in a Blake Bortles thread right now and I have said quite a bit of praise for him actually and defended him quite a bit.

Are you also another person that believes Connor Shaw is the truth?

I actually don't believe that BOB has a good grasp on Rayn's progression. Rayn was drafted in 2011. In 2012 BOB left for Penn State. In 2012 Godsey became a TE coach, now he's our QB coach. He knows Rayn better than me or outside media, but it doesn't mean he was the guy directly coaching him.

If I'm Bill B and you are now my enemy, sure, I'll tell you this kid's progression is going smooth as silk, it's really weird it can't be seen on the football field in preseason though.

If this happens will I be pissed? Damn right. True Comedy? Not really. If it works out though I will say I'm wrong and come clean, I always do. I don't stand up and preach truth that is really lies and sweep it under the rug later. I don't think I will be wrong though and it will be at the expense of my team, which will NOT be true comedy. Say no to Rayn!

Doesn't mean he's good. Sorry most of us don't go out of our way to watch WYOMING football games. He was also NOT invited to the combine. Snub? Maybe. Is anyone getting mad about it like they would if they truly believed he could be a great NFL talent? No.

Blake Bortles made a surprise visit to Radio Row at the Super Bowl and shocked everyone in attendance. Wasn't he listed at 6'3" by Central Florida? Try 6'5". Bortles' physical presence was dominating—but then again, so was his game film at times.

The hype for Bortles started late this year, but not because of any lack of talent on his part. In fact, no one thought he would leave Central Florida for the NFL after his junior year. But then Marcus Mariota, Brett Hundley and Bryce Petty said they'd be back in college next season, and as a result there was a huge void for talented quarterbacks in the top of the draft. Bortles packed his bags and started training, and NFL teams took notice.

Go back and watch his last two years at Central Florida, and you'll see a player who reminds you an awful lot of Andrew Luck with a little Ben Roethlisberger mixed in. He's solidly built but plays with the speed to run away from defenders. Much like Big Ben, he's a monster in the pocket or on the move and is super tough to bring down once he gets moving. Big Blake has the athletic ability to make a defender miss or put his pads down and run them over, and NFL scouts love it.

But how's the arm? Oh, it's good. Bortles is a bit raw in terms of mechanics, but he's able to make plays with his arm whether standing in the pocket or on the move. He'll throw across his body with velocity and accuracy, and while he can be a bit brave with the football, more often than not he's making plays and not turnovers.

He's raw, and everyone knows that, but the ceiling on Bortles is over his head—and that's a long way up there.

My biggest issue with Bortles, other than the competition level, is that he's only been doing it for 2 years.

Do you really know a player, watching him from afar, after 2 years? I know George O'Leary was high on him coming out of highschool & has been his coach for the last two years & O'Brien has history with O'Leary, so yeah he can get the scoop from the man... & I would have to think that's exactly what happened if we draft Bortles.

But I'd still be weary.

I'm not really high on any of the QB's in this draft. But I will say I like Smith and Murray at 3-1 much more than TB/JM/BB at 1-1. I doubt many of the TB guys have ever seen Brett Smith play or watched any film on him.
Lots of good points in here. The last couple of weeks this section of TT has basically been Aggies vs. TB worshippers vs. independents. It's basically a mini version of the 2006 draft. And it's only going to get worse.

Generalizations here, but:

The Manziel fans can't accept that other people don't think he will be as great as they hope he will be.

The Bridgewater fans can't accept that anyone could have another QB rated higher.

The Bortles fan doesn't know what he thinks. He waits for twitter to tell him.

The McCarron fan is special in his own way, but at least he backs up his arguments, even if the rest of us don't agree with him.

I will say that I try to stay neutral but I prefer Bridgewater at #1. I will also say that I can pretty much guarantee that I have watched more film on these guys than just about anyone here. I have no way to prove that but I have watched a lot. Football is my only hobby. That doesn't mean that you have to trust my opinions. But when I have an opinion on a player it is based on my own analysis from what I have seen with my own eyes. In the end we all have "our guy", even if we don't want to admit it. But I trust that O'Brien will do what's best, so no matter who he chooses I'll fall in line.

So you've seen Brett Smith play? Looks a lot like Montana at Notre Dame to me. Will he turn out to be anywhere in the neighborhood of Montana as a pro? Doubtful. However Smith has tools, the only thing that worries me is his concussion history.

Didn't mean to derail this thread.

Yes I have. I had him rated as a 3rd round prospect before the season was even over. I had no idea he was going to declare but I was high on him. We can carry this conversation over to the Brett Smith thread if you're interested.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

People keep saying this about Manziel, but Bortles is going to get a GM or a coach fired....... (Minnesota, Jax, and Tenn could probably give some great advice on how wise it is to reach for these kinds of QBs). It happens every year with guys who come out of nowhere to shoot up the boards only to be just what everyone initially thought they were.

Making the Case for Blake Bortles as 2014 NFL Draft's Top Overall Pick
By
Chris Trapasso , Featured Columnist
Feb 7, 2014

Here's what O'Brien said about Bortles after that game, per Paul Tenorio of the Orlando Sentinel:

"Anytime you have a quarterback like [Bortles], who is accurate, has a strong arm, is big and can stand in the pocket and can run, it is a difficult challenge. He played a great game tonight and all the credit to him. I think he is a heck of a player. I didn't get a chance to meet him or say hello to him, but I think he is a heck of a player."

I've said from the start that there is good qualities in all three of theses guys. If we pick one of them I'll be fine with the choice. If Obrian takes one it's going to be because he believes that particular player fits his system the best. If he takes Clowney I'll be fine with that too. Hell I'm cool with Watkins or Robinson. I can justify any of those picks.

IMO all these guys should be difference makers. I think it's silly to lock onto one of them and dog the rest. I'm happy as hell we are going to get one of them.


I really like Smith and Murray and Gerapolo (sp) in the second and third as well.
