lindsey-duke-BLAKE-BORTLES

Lindsey Duke is more famous than her boyfriend, former UCF QB Blake Bortles.

Due to her “physical features,” bikini picture heavy Instagram account and the general creepiness of the internet, Lindsey Duke is overshadowing her Fiesta Bowl winning quarterback boyfriend.

In fact, the Fiesta Bowl pregame show even did a feature on this.  And it came up again at the NFL Scouting Combine. It has been revealed that Lindsey Duke will attend the NFL Draft.

Four QBs the Chicago Bears might draft in the middle rounds


aj-mccarron

We know the Chicago Bears will have to go defense in the first round of the NFL Draft. And they probably will go that side of the ball in round two as well. However, they also do need to look at viable back-up options at the quarterback position. Jay Cutler will be the most well paid player in the NFL next season at $22.5 million.

And Jerrod Johnson is not going to be on any NFL roster. At least he doesn’t deserve to be. Time to look at some legitimate back-up options through the draft.
