Bortles quickly takes a three step drop and has his eyes keyed on the corner immediately. Keep in mind the ball must come out fast in this condensed area of the field.

Bortles gets the ball out even with his elongated throwing motion as his slot receiver is getting into his break. This is the kind of timing and anticipation that he must display to give himself a chance to complete passes on a consistent basis.

The pass is complete and Bortles can breath a sigh of relief.
