Default Re: Blake Bortles

Been reading up some on this kid. I didn't think he'd be an early first round discussion. I was hoping he'd be in the Boyd, Mettenberger, late first early second discussion.

I like his size. I like his story. He looks as good as any of them on youtube.

Sucks if they start talking him up to a top 10 QB.

He will probably be having sleep apnea surgery.

Afterall I read somewhere it doesn't matter if a HC/GM see/interview a prospect in person.

I like his size, but the way he almost "chuck and duck" reminds me of Gabbert, and that's a scary thought.

It seems to indicate that he's late in his read and/or in his mechanics.

Zach M looks to be a better prospect, but he's still in rehab before surgery, and I just read that it can take as long as 18 months for him to get back into playing shape.

Nobody at nfl.com gets it wrong as much as good old Bucky. Says Blake compares to Nick Foles. Last I checked Foles is a Top 5 QB. Besides Bucky loves him some Teddy. see Bucky's Teddy Love Story.

Link me to your wiki or post your scouting resume. Easy for Joe Schmoe to criticize, Brooks likes Manziel better than Bortles as well FWIW.

I can see a scenario where Bortles struggles and some of you will say he faced an elite defense.

As a guy that breaks down film and evaluates talent he doesn't have to choose 1 QB and find flaw in all the rest. He's not in a Houston Texans forum making his case for 1 player over the other.

If he felt that Bortles was elite along with 4 other QBs, it's not a knock on his job to say there are 5 elite QBs in the draft. So despite the fact he loves Teddy, it doesn't mean he has to dislike Bortles. I think he is honestly assessing him.

With all that said, I don't agree w/ Bucky on this. Bortles is day 1 talent and athletic enough that I can't see the combine hurting him in any way. I also doubt that the Baylor game can hurt him either. When Baylor is up by 20 in the 4th, UCF is gonna have to throw and in a soft prevent defense he's gonna look great.

As far as Bucky frequently getting it wrong, find me a published scout/draft guy that doesn't have countless mistakes on his resume, I bet you can't unless they are from the future. 200+ players to evaluate EVERY year generally means lots of mistakes.

Definitely.

I don't think Bortles is elite either....yet. But he certainly has the tools to become elite.

That is exactly what I mean about ole Bucky he is often quite the contrarian. I quit reading him years ago, I rarely agreed with anything he wrote and there is only so many minutes in a day, not enough for Bucky.

I've got Petty rated above Bortles this yr. If Petty were coming out he would be #1 rated player ahead of Clowney.
