UCF QB Blake Bortles treaded lightly when asked to compare himself to Johnny Manziel during his media session Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine, Dann Parr of reports. It didn't take a whole lot of reading between the lines, though, to figure out the perception he welcomed a chance to reinforce -- you can trust me, and you might not be able to trust him.

Bortles was asked about possibly edging out Manziel in terms of maturity, and Bortles started his response by complimenting his Texas A&M counterpart. It didn't seem like he disagreed with the contrast presented to him in the question, though.

"I've had the opportunity to talk to (Manziel) a little bit these last two days," he said. "He's a great kid. Enjoy talking to him. I can't speak on how I do this compared to how he does that. All I know is that I'll be trustworthy. I won't embarrass an organization off the field by making bad decisions or anything like that. I won't embarrass my family's name and will be a trustworthy guy, a trustworthy player."
