Nobody hits 100% and all analysts want to throw out a diamond in the rough. Brooks took.a shot and missed, when the Texans made that selection more people rather than less felt it was a steal. You know that thing about hindsight right?

Bortles completion % is 15% higher and TD to INT ratio is 3x Jake Locker numbers. If you did a little research you wouldn't be so gullible and naive to media no nothing's garbage.

Yes I think he will. He could be the QB surprise in this draft. I think he wll go earlier than many think, maybe as early as the 3rd rd.

Admittedly, no I haven't felt the need to research a guy who some wanted to play TE and who is the 'flavor of the week' funny I havent heard of Bortles til this year. Not that it means anything, just saying.

Ugly 3rd down pass under duress should have been picked.

Petty is a 4th rd talent. His mechanics are awful. Its a horizontal stretch offense which they don't even have plays. The reason why Rg3 was drafted as high as he was despite this jr offense was his cannon,feet,and high iq. Petty doesn't have the arm or the feet,not sure about his iq. No one rates this guy anywhere despite the cartoonish numbers.

Charlie Taaffe is now George O'Leary's OC at UCF. Both can give info on Bortles & will be trusted. All can run multiple offenses. #Texans

Bill O'Brien can pick up the phone & reach out to O'Leary & get the full (true) background of Bortles. AJ Bouye can give insight. #Texans

George O'Leary is the current HC of Bortles at UCF. O'Leary hired O'Brien at Ga Tech in '95 & worked together until '01. #Texans

IF you're a Blake Bortles fan, know that O'Brien will have all the info he could want on him. O'Brien worked for O'Leary at Ga Tech. #Texans

How long does that take though? I've heard the knock plenty of times about the transition from playing in the spread to the pro game. The closest I saw Bortels to the center was in the huddle until the victory formation. Someone mentioned upthread about a "lazer" he delivered. I watched every play and I didn't see it and that's what I was looking for. He delivered a few bombs right on target, right in stride but I saw more overthrown than "dropped in the bucket". When I watched TB I saw smoke trailing off the ball on his throws over the middle.

What am I missing?

While I will agree his mechanics were screwed up tonight. Petty has a cannon for an arm.

I dunno about a cannon, but I do like the way he hit a few throws in stride. Still not all that high on Petty though, same concern with him as with Manziel although they are different QBs - system qb or not? Petty is a wild card to me more than a sure-fire thing.

I will say he looks the part, strong arm big kid. Better served by staying in school imo.
