QB Blake Bortles will enter 2014 draft; Hundley to stay at UCLA


QB Blake Bortles will enter 2014 draft; Hundley to stay at UCLA

UCF QB Blake Bortles will parlay his excellent 2013 season into a likely first round pick in the NFL draft this spring. Bortles had 25 touchdowns and threw for 3581 yards leading the Knights to a 12-1 season and a Fiesta Bowl victory.

Meanwhile, 3000 miles away, UCLA QB Brett Hundley has reportedly decided to return to UCLA for his Junior season, refining what some are calling a unique, but raw talent. He'll compete with Oregon's Marcus Mariota to be the top QB in the 2015 draft.

Fantasy Analysis:

With five of the top ten teams needing a QB somewhere in the draft, expect to see Bortles in a starting line up next fall. While some experts have Bortles behind both Loiusville's Teddy Bridgewater and A&M's Johnny Manziel at the position, ESPN's Todd McShay currently has Bortles rated ahead of Manziel. If Bridgewater goes first to Houston, don't be surprised to see Jacksonville, Cleveland or Oakland take a shot with Bortles in the top 5.

Depending on what team grabs him, he may be a nice late round fantasy pick next year and definitely someone to keep an eye on in dynasty leagues.
