Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

At the beginning of the 2013 season, Bortles was a little known redshirt senior coming off a pretty good 2012 season in which he led the Knights to a 10-4 record. Now, he's a high-rising star who could challenge Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater as the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Bortles has the ideal height and build for NFL QBs. Can evade out of the pocket and pick up tough yards. Surprisingly good scrambler a la Andrew Luck. Sees the field really well and flows right through his progressions. Very good arm strength, not quite elite. Accuracy comes and goes, but that could be cleaned up with technique improvements. Takes chances with the football. Improved every year he was at UCF. Outdueled Bridgewater to lead UCF to huge win that really put them on the map in 2013.

Very confident in his decision-making. Displays good leadership. Plays under control emotionally. Hangs in the pocket to deliver the football when under duress.

Bortles projects as a mid-first round pick who could move up with a great evaluation period leading up to and after the Scouting Combine.
