What I like about Bortles is his height and weight as an NFL quarterback. He seems to be physically ready to play in the NFL, but I read about how some teams are worries about the size of his hands.
I know holding onto the football is important, but Bortles, after the combine, seems to have improved his position in the draft, and I believe he’s a big player for the Texans at the No. 1 overall selection.
