AFC Notes: Bortles, Ravens, Chiefs, Colts

We checked in on the NFC earlier this afternoon, so let’s head over to the AFC now and round up a few of the latest updates….

  • Blake Bortles had formal interviews with eight franchises at the combine in Indianapolis, according to Paul Tenorio of the Orlando Sentinel. Of those eight teams, three – the Texans, Jaguars, and Titans – were AFC South squads. The Jets and Raiders also met with the UCF quarterback.
  • With James Ihedigbo expected to leave in free agency, the Ravens would like to add a free safety this offseason, shifting Matt Elam to strong safety, writes Clifton Brown of Still, the team feels good about its secondary overall, and safety won’t be the top priority in May’s draft.
  • The Chiefs had formal interviews in Indianapolis with Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy and Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard, reports Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star (Twitter links).
  • Cornerback Vontae Davis and safety Antoine Bethea are potential candidates to receive the Colts‘ franchise designation, but the free agent most likely to be tagged might be kicker Adam Vinatieri, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

    I said it before and as I see more about him, Bortles reminds me so much of Drew Brees.

      Does that mean the Texans can get him with 1st pick in the second round?

        I think it’s certainly a possibility. There are a number of good QBs in this draft. If Texas goes with Clowney at number 1, then it shakes up most of the draft, because more teams probably expect them to take a QB first. Bridgewater, Manziel, and Carr could all go before Bortles. He would certainly be a steal at that pick, and I think him and Carr are going to be the two best QBs in this draft class.
