The responsible thing to do is wait and remain objective! That said I think that the #8 has worn out it's welcome in Houston. Another # at QB will be a refreshing change for many and that would apply to Bortles, Bridgewater and Manziel.

Blake Bortles measured in today at 6046, 229 pounds. For those not familiar with scout-talk, that's 6-4 (6/8 or 3/4). 3 lbs less than Indy.

After going through game tapes of Blake, I am VERY anxious to see how he performs today. Im very convinced he struggles with accuracy throwing left. Waiting to see how he does today in this aspect.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

Bortles stretched his arm with a rubber tubing harness, now warming up with some easy throws waiting for go time. Calm, not doing any strange stuff like Cam was at his pro day.

I'm looking for him to take the 33 1/3 up to 45 rpms -- do everything a little bit quicker. Watching for him sticking that tongue out, too.

You couldn't be more spot on. He's almost automatic when throwing to his right. Talent really falls off when throwing to his left. Throws are sporadic when going left.

He's missing some throws...Overthrowing guys...I saw a ball in the turf...

But I wouldn't take him based on his game film...Not at the top of the draft...I'd take Bortles in like the 2nd round and hope he could be coached up...

One of the balls he threw in the dirt was on a short comeback to his right..

I like his athleticism and size though. You can easily see he's athletic from the way he moves around. Good arm strength too.

I'm so right eyed dominant that I can shoot a basketball good if I'm left of the key but kinda stink to the right because my left eye isn't so hot .

Default Re: Blake Bortles

One sideline miss, others were long on very deep throws. 60 yards carry no issue. Showed a nice rollout and flip long pass from both sides at the end. His dropbacks showed more urgency in warmups/early which was something I was looking for. No hiccups today, as it should be.

Bortles 1

He missed on like 4 throws...

But looked good overall.

Reading through John McClain's tweets it doesn't appear as glowing. Basically McClain is saying he was inaccurate quite a bit, but he WR's were making some good catches.

I wanted to look good in shorts because I've always been the kind of guy who looks better in practice and in games. It's probably why I wasn't recruited highly out of high school because, I would go to those Quarterback Combines and just look average.
Bortles confident enough to challenge Mayock on air about his deep ball.
