Wrench in the Works

The one player who could really set the 2014 NFL Draft off is University of Central Florida QB Blake Bortles.

Reports say that he's about 70% sure that he'll be coming out for the draft.  The NFL Draft Advisory Board will likely give Bortles a favorable grade...probably a 1st or 2nd Round, but it's likely he will be drafted somewhere in the Top 15 picks if not higher.

If you haven't seen Bortles play, he is a very good player and has a lot of versatility in his QB play.  He and the Knights will take on what could be their biggest challenge this season in the Baylor Bears in the Fiesta Bowl.  UCF and Baylor will play at 5:30 pm PT on New Years Day, live from Glendale, AZ.

He could also very well be the Raider pick in the 1st Round should he be available in the Oakland slot.  A solid Bowl performance, in what should be a shootout, could help persuade McKenzie and Olson to go after the kid.
