Jaguars take their latest QB of the future, UCF's Blake Bortles

Blaine Gabbert is long gone, and the Jaguars didn't wait long Thursday night to take who they hope can be their quarterback of the future, for real this time: UCF quarterback Blake Bortles @BBortles5. He was the third overall pick.

Fantasy Analysis:

Pardon me. Before I start this fantasy take section, I have to say, as a UCF alum, that I am pretty damn happy right now.

Now ... please don't ruin him, Jacksonville. And that means please don't play him in Week 1 of the regular season. Bortles isn't ready for that. I believe he has the most upside of any quarterback in this draft, but he is an unfinished product. He is a big, athletic quarterback in the mold of an Andrew Luck -- although Luck is much better. Bortles still needs to work on his accuracy and arm strength. I fear that if Jacksonville starts him from the beginning, he is going to get swallowed up by the league because that team isn't ready to support a talented-but-raw rookie quarterback. Bortles shouldn't have much fantasy value this season. Chad Henne should have the greatest odds of being the Jaguars' starter.
