Blake Bortles will throw at NFL combine

Published Add your comment

NFL hopeful, Blake Bortles has revealed that he will be participating in throwing drills at the combine this weekend.

The former UCF quarterback tweeted today:

"Dreamt about the combine since I was a kid! Fired up to compete in all aspects of it, especially throwing!"

Bortles was known as a decent pocket-passer during his college career and had a completion percentage of over 65% last season.

Johnny Manziel has already revealed that he will not throw at the combine or the Texas A&M pro day but will throw during his own personal pro day before the draft.

Alabama quarteback, AJ McCarron has yet to decide whether he will participate in the throwing drills in Indianapolis. 

Many quarterbacks do decide against participating as they do not want to be unfairly judged when they throw to unfamiliar receivers during the drills.

Bortles however has bucked the trend as is expected to be looked upon in a good light by NFL scouts as a result. The UCF grad has been predicted to be selected in the first round of the draft in May by many analysts and is even be as high as the number one overall pick on some boards.
