Full Blake Bortles News Wire
Bortles popped up on many peoples' radars with an oustanding effort in an upset bid against South Carolina at the end of September that fell short.
Bortles shows a confident, gritty attitude and, assuming he stays for his senior year and continues to develop, will enter next season as one of the better quarterback prospects in the country. Get to know him now. (10/4/13).
Strengths: Prototypical size and is big-bodied rusher with better athleticism than given credit for. Good arm strength with a smooth release with enough zip to fit the ball into small windows. Poised to deliver accurately under pressure and shows terrific peripheral vision and overall feel to see the entire field and not just lock onto his top progression.
Weaknesses: Needs to improve his spatial awareness in the pocket and improve his climbing ability.
