Blake Bortles is hoping for a round one selection in May's NFL Draft, but it's his skills off the field that continue to game him fame. 

Bortles' girlfriend used yet another photo opportunity to gain her fame, whilst simultaneously putting the former UCF quarterback on the map yet again in terms of internet searches and media coverage.

Bortles' fame came from left-field when his girlfriend appeared in a photoshoot that went viral, and he became famous across America overnight for his skills off the field.

On the field he started to gain his own reputation when he carved open the Baylor defense on the way to securing UCF a Fiesta Bowl win in January, a feat which has led to Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien to state his interest in the quarterback.

The Texans have the number one pick, and although they could pick owner favorite Johnny Manziel, it's understood that coach Bill O'Brien likes Bortles.

Houston will likely make their mind up at the NFL Combine, where Bortles will show his physical capabilities to all over his skills off the field. 

In the mean-time, lets enjoy the photo above.
