With the free agency period now in full swing, NFL draft prospects continue to show off their skills at pro days around the country in the build up to the draft. One quarterback prospect eager to impress is Blake Bortles.

The UCF signal-caller has rocketed up draft boards in recent weeks and his pro day on March 19th is sure to be well attended.

The quarterback himself took to twitter today to show his excitement and readiness for the exhibition day: "Feels good to be back home in Orlando! Can't wait for #UCF pro day!" Bortles' message read.

Bortles was among only a few quarterbacks who actually threw at the scouting combine so NFL scouts have actually had a chance to evaluate the UCF man in all the drills. However, it will be a way for interested teams to gauge just how he has developed throughout this offseason.

Bortles threw for 25 touchdowns and over 3,500 yards during his senior year at UCF as the Knights won the Fiesta Bowl to cap off a 12-1 season.

Although Bortles' girlfriend, Lindsey Duke may be receiving more attention than the star QB that will all change if he is selected early in May.
