Jacksonville Jaguars' Blake Bortles determined to improve mechanics

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles believes that he has improved his throwing mechanics significantly following his work in the off-season.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is hopeful that he will reap the rewards in the 2015 campaign following work on his throwing mechanics in the off-season.

The 23-year-old had a difficult rookie campaign with the AFC South side after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2014 Draft.

Bortles has strived to improve himself under the tutelage of Tom House, who also works with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, in order to become a more consistent player next season.

"To me, it's a big difference," Bortles told reporters. "To the guys that I worked with it's a big difference. It's just more efficient. It's better. It's tough. It's still something I have to think about."

Bortles threw for 2,908 yards and 11 touchdowns to 17 interceptions in the 2014 season.
