And I haven't even mentioned Bortles' horrible mechanics, just look at his throwing motion, it's awful. Just look at it. And his release his far from quick, he has been criticized in the past for having a slow release. Carr for example has a MUCH quicker release.
Bortles was drafted off potential, he had alot of weaknesses in his game, but alot of people thought that would be fixed in the NFL which hasn't been the case.
I remember the 2014 draft well, I had Bortles as the 3rd best QB behind Bridgewater & Carr and I didn't understand all the hype he was getting.
Then why you ask why he was picked #3rd? at the time it was between him and Bridgewaters and like I sad people didn't believe Teddy could even grip a footballs
Its like Asking why David Carr went #1, only in hindsight it looks like a bad pick
