The difference between the teams that are consistently winning and the teams that are consistently losing is the ability to evaluate talent.

Bad Luck is when you lose and the QB prospects are just decent . Really bad luck is Carr and Harrington .

For me, watching the 'big 3' QBs on Grudens QB Camp, the one that impresses the most sitting in an armchair shooting the breeze is Bortles.

Default Re: Blake Bortles

Gruden makes an interesting point about not knowing who the top 5 picks were last year, or the year before.

I don't think I know.

Once the teams start playing draft position doesn't matter its all about production.

Blake Bortles working out privately for Cleveland Browns today

"He has all the measurables,'' coach Mike Pettine said at the NFL Annual Meeting last week. "If you look at him, if you said draw me an NFL quarterback, that's probably who you'd draw. I think the thing that's impressive about him is his ability in crunch time in a lot of tight games, a lot of come-from-behind wins, you can see he's confident, can make all the throws, I think he's a better athlete than some people give him credit for.''
