Bortles measured in earlier today at 6′ 5″ and 232 lbs, easily the biggest of all the top QB prospects in this years draft. The UCF product burst onto the scene this season and has vaulted up draft boards. With recent reports that Bortles would be the first overall pick if the draft were to start today, makes everything Bortles does something to look out for. He is also the only QB on this list because of his recent announcement he will be throwing at the combine. Participating in the throwing drills gives him the opportunity to answer any questions scouts have about his arm accuracy (the biggest question about his game right now). Bortles is the only big name QB throwing at the combine this weekend. With a solid performance at the combine Bortles has a chance to cement himself as the QB Houston should take with the first overall pick. While there is an outside chance the Raiders draft him in the first round he is still a prospect they should keep their eyes on this weekend, as he could potentially be the franchise QB Oakland has been looking for.
