Quarterback: Jacksonville Jaguars
Career Highlights: Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles led the team to two exciting wins over the Buffalo Bills and heavily-favored Pittsburgh Steelers in last season’s NFL Playoffs, and the team’s first AFC Championship Game since 1999. After only four seasons, Bortles holds numerous Jaguar single-season records including passing touchdowns, passing yards, pass completions, and pass attempts. In 2015, he threw a touchdown pass in 15 consecutive games and five touchdown passes in a single game (vs. Tennessee Titans), both franchise records. In his 2014 rookie season, Bortles connected on 11 touchdowns and rushed for 419 yards, establishing himself as a dual-threat quarterback. Selected sixth overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, Bortles had a stellar three-year career at the University of Central Florida where he compiled a 22-5 record as a starter. Bortles led UCF to a 2012 Conference USA East Division Championship and the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl champion where he was named the MVP. In 2013, Bortles, named the AAC Offensive Player of the Year, led UCF to an upset over eighth-ranked Louisville to win the American Athletic Conference Championship, and followed that with another upset win over sixth-ranked Baylor in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl.
