    Draft buzz around UCF QB Blake Bortles continues to grow

    Draft buzz around UCF QB Blake Bortles continues to grow

    UCF quarterback Blake Bortles has seen his name rocket up draft boards in recent weeks.

    The frenzy started when ESPN's Todd McShay rated Bortles his No. 2 overall quarterback prospect. Other mock drafts and NFL rankings began to follow suit. (CBSSports.com has Bortles going No. 7 overall to the Cleveland Browns.)

    On Sunday night during NBC's Football Night in America, Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King said Bortles is the top quarterback on the board for some NFL teams.

    "The fastest rising quarterback in the first round, should he choose to come out, is fourth-year junior Blake Bortles of Central Florida," King said. "Iíve spoken to a team thatís likely to have a top 10 pick, and they like him better than any quarterback in this draft.Ē

    Bortles' father told the Sentinel that Bortles will not be evaluating his draft stock or making a decision until after the Knights' Fiesta Bowl match-up with No. 6 Baylor on Jan. 1. With the hype building, however, it may become extremely difficult for the Oviedo native to walk away from a first-round grade and a potential top-10 selection.

    Back when he was in Oviedo and we went to scout him, I knew teams were crazy not to offer him a scholarship besides one to be a TE and man does it feel good to be right lol
