NFL Scouting Series - Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

*this is the first post in a series that will go over what i think of some of the top players in this years upcoming draft.

Name: Blake Bortles
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 232
40 Yd Dash: 4.93
Accuracy: 6/10
Vision: 8/10
Arm Strength: 6/10
Pocket Presence: 7/10
Anticipation/Elusivesness: 8/10
Size: 9/10
Overall Score: 7.3/10

Blake Bortles is the traditional sized QB out of University of Central Florida. The person he reminds me most of is Geno Smith but more elusive. He is accurate in the 0-15 yard range. In the 4 games that I watched every throw in, he threw 121 total passes, and only threw 16 20+ yards.  His deep accuracy is very suspect, only completing 8 of the 16 and 2 were intercepted. Bortles has good vision and awareness to escape the pocket when pressure is coming.  He will go early in the first round, but I would personally wait to  take him until the late first or early second.
