Default Blake Bortles looking to be the top QB pick for the 2014 draft

http://knightnews.com/2013/12/blake-...tes-more-buzz/

If any of you watch college ball I'm sure you know who Bortles is, whilst UCF isn't a title contender Bortles has led us to wins over Penn State, Top 10 Louisville and going toe to toe with South Carolina. He'll also lead UCF against Baylor in their first bowl game ever.

Depending on how he does in the Fiesta bowl will probably determine his decision.

He's no Jameis Winston, but Bortles really came into his own this season. He's had some crazy game winning passes and is faster than he looks. What are you guys thoughts on him?

easily a top 10 QB imo. i sort of see him as a jake locker...maybe not as athletic/physical but close. he can pick apart weak defenses for sure. good luck vs. baylor, man...ya'll exceeded all expectations this season

I really hope he slips to the Raiders if we decide to go QB, if not, Clowney.

5th pick, Manziel could be available, Clowney, Carr, Bortles... I'd be okay with any of those... preferably QB we need a franchise QB

I like the looks of Bortles as a longterm prospect. Obviously, he has the size and athleticism. He's built in the mold of a Ben Roethlisberger or Joe Flacco.

He has what looks to be good arm strength. On those outs or quick-hitters to the sidelines, he gets is there very quickly and looks to have a nice, quick release.

His accuracy, especially on intermediate routes, appears to be his most serious issue. He could probably benefit from another year at UCF, but I doubt he goes back.

All said, I like what I've seen of him and I wouldn't complain if he were the Browns' choice at 4. I've heard there is a lot of interest in him by the front office, btw. If he's there and Bridgewater is gone, I'd bet on Bortles being the pick.

Pretty much spot on here.

It'll be a long shot for him to be picked as the first QB, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did. But I'm pretty much gonna follow him anywhere he goes.

In a perfect world I'd rather have him stay another year, I doubt it but I'm happy he's finally getting the recognition he deserves.
