University of Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles will enter the 2014 NFL draft, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

The 6-foot 4-inch star has reportedly already decided to forgo his last year of eligibility with the Giants and is expected to confirm the decision in a press conference on Monday.

Bortles is considered one of the best quarterback prospects in the drafts with CBSSports placing him as the second best in his position behind Johnny Manziel and 12th overall.

The 22-year-old lead a 12-1 UCF to an American Athletic Conference title and a win in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, passing 3581 yards in the process.

For a second consecutive season, Bortles threw 25 touchdown passes and ran for six touchdowns this season.

Bortles redshirted in 2010 before playing sparingly in 2011. He finally caught the attention of NFL scouts as a sophomore in 2012 by throwing 3,059 yards and 25 touchdown passes.

After an even better 2013, Bortles is expected to come in as one of the top picks when the draft starts on May 8th.

With scouting combine and other opportunities to impress before the draft, Bortles will have plenty of opportunities to boost his draft stock even further before May.
