    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.

    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.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    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?

    Seems like just recently though. I guess that final game leaves a lasting impression in peoples minds, but you do have 3 years of tape. It just reminded me of how Gabbert shot up the board out of the blue.

    Personally, I think I like Bridgewater better. Maybe even Tajh Boyd, who slipped to the 3rd for some reason.

    I think Gabbert and Bortles are completley different QB's, I never understood the hype about Gabbert, not saying that Bortles is head and shoudlers better but I think Bortles is a more prototypical Pro QB with the offense they run at UCF, Gabbert looked good in the spread cause he was just a system QB. I could be wrong, just my take.

    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'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.
