NFL scouts want to take Blake Bortles' girlfriend to dinner

Blake Bortles has had to deal with some interesting questions at the NFL Combine, he revealed.

Thanks to several provocative photos, Bortles' girlfriend, Lindsey Duke, is perhaps more famous than the QB just now and her celebrity has reached the offices of NFL franchises across the country it seems.

While scouts often ask potential draft targets about their personal relationships, Bortles revealed that he had to field several questions about his better half as part of the Combine interview process:

"There's kind of some awkward (questions), like 'if we come to town, will she be there for dinner? Stuff like that," he told the Dan Patrick show.

"They knew about her going into the meeting. I think that was the angle, to see how I'd react to it."

So even as the quarterback tries to justify the hype which sees him amongst the favourites to be picked first in May, his girlfriend is continuing to outshine him even when it comes to talking football.

In the interest of impartiality we feel it only fair to mention Bortles on field ability here.

In 2013 he threw for 3,581 yards and 25 touchdowns for the University of Central Florida.
