04:15 PM ET 12.07 | UCF Knights quarterback Blake Bortles has put together an incredible season, which has caught the attention of plenty analysts and NFL scouts around the country. In fact, heading into today's game against the SMU Mustangs, there are some NFL teams that believe the redshirt junior from Central Florida is the No. 1 quarterback in the nation. Bortles could declare for the 2014 NFL Draft at the end of the season and if he does he could immediately be in the top ten discussion. With quarterbacks like Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville, Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel and Fresno State's Derek Carr all expected to be in this year's draft, it says a lot about Bortles that some are viewing him as the cream of the crop.

No shortage of teams that'll draft a QB in round one. The only two in the top ten I think will not for sure are Tampa and Atlanta.

UCF struggled against mighty SMU so I doubt Bortles lit it up.

They like Glennon. Can't imagine they'll draft a QB in the 1st.

Brady struggled against Ohio State. Peyton Manning couldn't beat Florida to save his life. I don't think Terry Bradshaw played in a bowl. Aaron Rodgers couldn't beat USC.

It's all talent evaluation, wins and losses don't mean that much for the draft.
