Blake Bortles: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bortles is not expected to enter the 2014 season as the Jaguars' starting quarterback, ESPN.com reports.

The Jaguars selected Bortles in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, third overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bortles is a surprising selection at the third spot, as his stock reportedly had cooled off a bit relative to what it was in February. He will in any case stay in the state of Florida and give the Jags a new hope for a franchise quarterback, and hopefully an immediate upgrade over Chad Henne. Bortles won't run in the pros as much as he did at Central Florida, but he's a big quarterback (6-foot-5, 232 pounds) with the ability to find the end zone occasionally with his feet. He likely won't be very effective as a rookie passer, however, and his immediate fantasy value is limited further by the fact that he'll likely play in a fairly run-heavy offense.
Bortles had an impressive pro day workout Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bortles completed 56-of-65 passes at the workout, with five attributed to drops. The narrative on Bortles' pro day is solidly in his favor, and the consensus continues to push him toward the Texans with the first overall pick. Teddy Bridgewater received mostly negative reviews for his pro day Monday, yet his 57-of-65 completed with two drops is an adjusted completion count difference of just two. And while such takes might not find their way into mainstream print, Houston Chronicle writer John McClain and CSN Houston's James Palmer both noted that Bortles' receivers helped him out on some off-target throws. We think Bortles is a strong all-around prospect likely locked into the first three picks, but we don't think his decision making, accuracy, field vision or release are as good as those offered by Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel.
Bortles measured in at 6-foot-5, 232 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Bortles is preparing to throw at the NFL Combine, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bortles and his camp have not made a decision yet, but for now it appears that he's at least pursuing the possibility. He'll presumably throw in a pro day setting after the Combine, regardless of whether he throws at Indianapolis. One interesting note in the Orlando Sentinel article is the fact that Bortles claims he stands at 6-5 and a half, which is higher than his listed college height of 6-4. He looks like a plausible top-five pick and a probable top-10 pick at the moment.
Bortles, a quarterback from Central Florida, received praise from Houston coach Bill O'Brien, the Houston Chronicle reports. "Blake is a good-sized guy. He's an athletic guy for his size," O'Brien said. "He's an accurate passer. The guys who coached him at Central Florida think highly of him as a young man who really studies the game. He works hard at the game.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Speculation regularly links Bortles to O'Brien and the first overall pick. Bortles has the best combination of size and athleticism among the quarterback trio of himself, Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel, so it's entirely possible that he'll be the top-ranked quarterback on some draft boards. Bortles will likely earn high grades for his work ethic and smarts, as he earned the starting quarterback role at UCF despite facing off against much higher-ranked recruits like Jeff Godfrey and Tyler Gabbert. Bortles led UCF to huge upset victories over Louisville and Baylor in 2013, and nearly defeated South Carolina in a 28-25 loss. He completed 67.8 percent of his passes this year while throwing for 3,581 yards (9.4 YPA), 25 touchdowns and nine interceptions. His fantasy upside in the NFL is greatly aided by his running ability, as he ran for 14 touchdowns in the last two years. He shows good accuracy and adequate velocity as a passer, but Bortles hasn't shown much downfield passing ability, and he'll have questions to answer about his ability to read defenses after playing in an offense that relied heavily on short passes and fixed reads. Both Bridgewater and Manziel have considerably more convincing film when it comes to the question of making NFL throws, so for now we suspect both quarterbacks will get drafted ahead of Bortles. Bortles in any case is a good candidate to go in the first 10 picks, and seems safely locked into the top 20.
