In a couple of hours, Blake Bortles will likely learn what NFL team he will be playing for come fall. The former Central Florida quarterback is projected by many to be a first round pick in the NFL Draft, which begins tonight at 8 p.m. E.T. from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Bortles is one of two prospects whose girlfriend is just as–if not, more–famous than the player himself (A.J. McCarron the other). The quarterback’s girlfriend, Lindsey Duke, has gained serious notoriety since college football’s previous season. She will accompany Bortles in the Green Room at Radio City Music Hall this evening. The two have been together since high school in Florida, and this morning, Duke posted a photo of the two, wishing her boyfriend luck. The photo features the pair back in high school:

Bortles is projected by most to be one of the first three quarterbacks selected.
