  • Blake Bortles: QB UCF

    Whats up with this kid? You guys think he will be any good? Or just another Blane Gabbert type QB, all the measurables that boost his stock, then he flops. I just dont know why he is ranked so high now. Saw him as the #1 overall pick in some mocks, and the #1 QB in others.

    I just dont get the hype on him, like I didnt on Ponder or Gabbert.
    The Problem is the Oline, PERIOD

    If you look at the mocks he will be gone in first 7/8 picks in pretty much all of them. He had a great season. Did you see him in his bowl game?
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

      He's a different player than those guys. He makes big plays in big games and/or big times. Every game this season if we were in it at the end we expected to win the game because we know Blake would come alive. He has that 4th quarter magic. (We're alums from same Hs and college)

        no bias there... lol.

        I guess. I just find it weird that when Mariota and Hundley were in the mix, they were being projected above this guy, along with Bridgewater and Manziel. Now he seems to be a lot of peoples favorites. What happened in the past month or so?

          I'm not really sure why he is getting Gabbert comparisons, besides the fact that he is being mocked to the Jags a lot. Gabbert was a bad QB in a bad QB draft, and a lot of people knew it. I honestly don't really think he was THAT overhyped. I never thought he had the arm strength or decision making to be good in the NFL. Bortles can be good I think. I think he has all of the tools. However, I do think he should sit a year or two in the NFL to gain experience because I think he does need to improve his decision making a little.

              I see the Jags going Manziel before Bortles to be honest. Obviously they would love Bridgewater. It could be possible that they go Clowney in the 1st, and maybe Carr or Mettenberger or Murray later in the draft. Jags have a DC minded HC, and he wants to stack the D. Or they will just ride one more bad year with Henne / Gabbert and go Mariota or Winston next year which sounds a lot better.

                still have a long process.. I wouldn't be shocked if Bortles goes before Bridgewater.. and Houston should take Clowney

                  Not a huge huge Clowney fan, because of how he played off this past year, but pairing him with Watt would be pretty cool.

                      I like Bortles. More importantly the NFL scouts like him too. Go on over to Walterfootball and check out the rumor section. There are numberous reports (1 was not a rumor but a NFL network report) that scouts have not been overly impressed with any of the QBs at the senior bowl and that despite not being there, a majority of the discussion has revolved around Bortles.

                      Some team will take a chance on Bortles very early in the draft.

                      Here are some of the things I like:

                      The part of his game that amazes me the most. He doesn't throw at 1 velocity. He uses touch passes when they are needed and he uses bullets when they are needed. This is something he does better right now than many current NFL QBs.

                      His natural inclination when he feels pressure is to step up into the pocket rather than float back or go laterally. This seems simple, but it is important in the NFL.

                      He doesn't stare down recievers and will actually look guys off. This is something you don't see a lot of guys coming out of college do well.


                      His ball placement is excellent. He does the little things in this regard like put the ball on the opposite side of the receiver from the defender.

                      Most importantly he played well in big games.


                      I know most don't agree with me but if I am a top 3 team and I need a QB, I do not necessarily automatically take Bridgewater. I think Bortles requires some serious consideration.


                      He definitely is a better prospect than Gabbert, who I never liked as a 1st rounder. He was a perfect example of teams falling in love with a guys arm, rather than actually looking at the small things like ball placement and tendencies under pressure/ passrush.

                        Blake seems like a NYG type QB... One we could take and mold into another SB type QB like we did with Simms & Hoss and now Eli. No way we can get him though as we won't come close or drafting a QB this season. They are going to want to see what coach Mac can do with Eli and Nassib forts and besides to many holes in other area namely OL WR DE DT LB RB etc lol

                          I believe depending on the type game he has in Senior bowl that the giants may go after garoppalo. If he drops far enough you never know

                            I could see him going in the 2nd round to be honest. He is making a name for himself for sure now.

                            I also hear Carr is shining right now at the senior bowl practices. I heard Mayock say he has the best of all the QBs so far, really saying it wasnt even close.
