Blake Bortles entered the 2014 NFL Draft as the consensus #1 quarterback, coming off of three strong seasons with the University of Central Florida. The Jaguars took Bortles early in the draft and had him start in week one of his first season. With a very underwhelming start to his career, many wondered if he was worth the early draft pick. With many doubts entering the 2017 season, Bortles began to prove all doubters wrong with an excellent postseason run. With a great year behind him, the Jaguars gave him a big extension, believing that he could replicate the past year’s success. However, Bortles did quite the opposite. With a league leading 10 interceptions, he has nearly thrown as many picks as touchdowns (13) and was even benched twice for Cody Kessler. The team made it clear today that they will be moving on from Bortles next season and will try to find a new quarterback. In just 5 years, the top prospect has become a below-average quarterback. Thoughts?
