Two days after Teddy Bridgewater's underwhelming performance at his Pro Day, fellow top QB prospect Blake Bortles impressed at his.
Bortles, one of three quarterbacks vying to be the first taken in the NFL Draft in May alongside Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel, helped his cause by impressing scouts with a clean performance at the UCF Pro Day Wednesday, according to reports.
The 22-year-old UCF product looked good in throwing 65 scripted passes; so much so that many draftniks believe Bortles is very much in the conversation to be taken first overall.
Bortles' big day comes on the heels of Bridgewater struggling during his audition Monday. Reports said Bridgewater was inaccurate on a lot of throws and according to respected draftnik Mike Mayock of NFL Network, was “average at best.”
Part of Bridgewater's problem may have been that he shed the glove he normally wears on his throwing hand, something he said he won't do any more moving forward.
