3. Blake Bortles (2014, Pick #3)
Blake Bortles is a quarterback version of Frankenstein: all body, no brain. Or put another way, he’s what happens if you take the body of a Spartan warrior, and infuse him with the athletic talent and IQ of the village idiot.
After a rookie season in which he went 3-10 as a starter, the fantasy football aficionados were seduced by Bortles’ 35 touchdowns and 4,428 passing yards in 2015 (though the team went 5-11), failing to realize how much of those stats were generated in “garbage time.”
Even when the Jaguars went 10-6 and advanced to the AFC Championship game in 2017, they lost because the New England Patriots forced the Jaguars to beat them with the arm of Bortles. Mercifully, the Jaguars parted ways with Bottles after the 2018 season, and handed a big money contract to Nick Foles.
