Paul Pabst of The Dan Patrick Show tweeted out the following: "Blake Bortles said he was asked about his girlfriend at the combine.."They said, if we come to town...will she be coming to dinner with us?"
The numbers astonished few, and even Bortles' UCF coach George O'Leary admitted she's worthy of the attention. "I would hope as a head coach that the numbers would be reversed,' O'Leary said, 'but obviously you haven't seen his girlfriend. She deserves six million Googles."
Bortles may not be the looker of the couple, but he had his own way of turning heads during the Indianapolis showcase. Bortles was throwing frozen ropes all over the place, culmination in a perfect 45-yard post that stunned scouts.
"Bortles was by far the best quarterback,'' former Bears quarterback Jim Miller said. "Bortles is the real deal. ...He probably runs better than Ben Roethlisberger. I'm not going to say he's an Andrew Luck, but when tacklers are draped on him, Bortles can still deliver the football."
At UCF he had a dominant junior campaign, he threw for 3,581 yards, 25 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He was also a scary threat on the ground, picking up 272 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Even still, he doesn't think he'll ever eclipse Duke's popularity.
"Apparently, she is more of a household name than I am,' Bortles told ESPN. 'She's more famous than me and there's nothing I can do about that."
