Gus Bradley impressed with Blake Bortles' accuracy

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars have only had two training camp practices, but coach Gus Bradley is already impressed with what he’s seen from second-year quarterback Blake Bortles.

Bradley said he likes Bortles’ command of the offense and the way he is throwing the ball after Bortles spent the offseason fixing some mechanical issues with his delivery.

"His accuracy is good for this early, especially," Bradley said Saturday afternoon. "I like his mechanics. I think you guys said you had noticed that. His mechanics, his poise [are good]. His big thing is he wants to own the offense so he can play at a higher level without thinking a lot, and that’s what he’s doing.

"You can tell he put in his time over the summer with the knowledge of the offense."

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said Bortles completed 13 of 22 passes in 11-on-11 sessions during his first two days of practice. He went 7-for-12 on Friday, but two of those incompletions were drops. It's potential good news, not only for Bortles, but for the young crop of WRs, like Allen Robinson, and TE Julius Thomas, who will benefit from a potential stronger QB situation this season.
