Blake Bortles visited Raiders

Former Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles took his visit to Oakland and met with the Raiders organization, according to the Contra Costa Times.

Bortles is likely a first-round pick, though it's uncertain the Raiders would be willing to take him at No. 5 overall. Oakland traded for Matt Schaub this offseason and have already proclaimed him the team's starter. With other areas to address, the Raiders may wait until the second or third rounds to take a quarterback.

Bortles saw his stock rise to the first round this past season after leading Central Florida to a 12-1 record and a Fiesta Bowl win over Baylor.

Bortles threw for 3,581 yards, 25 touchdowns and nine interceptions during the 2013 season before deciding to forego his senior season to declare to the NFL draft.
