Its like Asking why David Carr went #1, only in hindsight it looks like a bad pick

Like I said, he was drafted off potential, a classic boom or bust player. Bortles was seen as project by most scouts and some thought his flaws would be fixed in the NFL overtime. If you look at the college tape Carr & Bridgewater were much better QBs than Bortles.

BTW David Carr was drafted to a team in a horrible situation, played with the worst offensive line in NFL history, Blake Bortles on the other hand has all the talent around him and he is still failing.
