George O'Leary Thinks Blake Bortles Needs More Time


Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles name comes up in discussions of the top passers in this years draft, but his college coach isnt ready to declare him a franchise quarterback just yet.

Coach George OLeary told Sports Radio 610 in Houston that description should be more rare.

I think a franchise quarterback comes out once every 10 years, and he came out last year in [Andrew] Luck, OLeary said, despite being off just one year. The ones I see succeed are understudies.

OLeary thinks Bortles has the chance to succeed, and has all the tools to get it done, but might need more time.
