2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Tim Tebow, QB, Florida

Tebow enjoyed another outstanding season in 2009 even though he did not score as many touchdowns and did not win any championships. He completed 213 of 314 passes (67.8 percent) for 2895 yards, 21 touchdowns, and five interceptions. His best passing performance of his entire college career came in a Sugar Bowl rout of Cincinnati in which Tebow went 31-of-35 for 482 yards and three scores. On the rushing side of things, Tebow racked up 910 yards on 14 carries and he found the endzone 14 times. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner did an especially impressive job of bouncing back from an early-season concussion sustained against Kentucky. While his ability to excel at the next level remains a question mark, there is no denying that Tebow is an extremely smart quarterback who rarely makes bad decisions. At 6'3 and 245 pounds, he is a load to bring down when he tucks it away and runs. He is deceptively nimble and elusive as well. Off the field, Tebow is as solid as they come; a team leader, humanitarian, and just about everything else. The question, of course, is if Tebow can become a serviceable dropback passer in the NFL. Urban Meyer's Florida offense put Tebow in ideal conditions to succeed, so it remains to be seen how he will respond in passing situations against NFL defenses. Tebow has no fear sitting in the pocket, but he needs to do a better job of feeling pressure. His delivery on passes also starts way too low and has to change before he can become an NFL quarterback (this is the most well-documented red flag). Defensive linemen will have a field day of knocking the ball out of his hand if he continues with this same throwing motion. Tebow will not be as good in the pros (after all, he was one of the best players in college football history), but he cannot be discounted either. He has had some good offseason workouts to the extent that he has been invited to the upcoming NFL Draft. A first-round selection is out of the question, but all bets are off after that.

Prediction: 2nd Round

Tim Tebow statistically is a great college football player, but hey Alex Smith put up similar numbers in Urban Myers offense with much less talent around him, that brings me to my point, if Tebow makes it to the NFL as a quaterback he will be horrible, his mechanics are terrible, his arm strength is a little above average, he has no clue how to read defenses because in urban myers offense everything is almost automatic, without great recievers (Percy Harvin) his passing numbers are suffering. Again another overated gator, he's completely a system player, Terrelle Pryor, Pat White, Matt Grothe, or Christian Ponder would've have probably doubled his number in Urban Myers System. He'll Probably get drafted in the second round because of all the hype but he's a 4th to 6th round prospects as a quaterback, if he can catch he could be a 3rd round H-Back

We've all heard that Jacksonville Jaguars' owner Wayne Weaver has considered taking Tim Tebow in this upcoming NFL Draft. He said, quote, "Star power is incredible, and Tebow is an iconic figure. That's very compelling. He clearly is an outstanding football player and would be an asset to any football organization." Rumor has it they're already conducting a survey to project Tebow's effect on Jaguar ticket sales if he was to be selected. Really, though? It's a simple equation.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hurting for ticket sales. BAD. Tim Tebow is a god in Florida. 1+1=?

If the Jaguars want to put butts in the seats, they'll take Tebow, and they'll need to take him in the first round. Sure, 15-20th overall might be too high for a project player like Tebow, but the reality is he'll probably be gone by that point in the 2nd Round.

Tim Tebow will not be a starter but a reliable back up he is a great leader bu does not have much of a arm he would run wildcat

Prediction: 1st Round

Okay lets start this with the fact that he is not a first round quarterback. He will simply be drafted in the first round. If I am an executive of a team, I have him on my board as an end of the second round type of guy. But I feel that Jacksonville, as they need to, will draft him wherever they end up which is probably in the middle to late teens. And about him being statistically the greatest college football player of all-time. He IS the greatest college football player of all time. Not only statistically. His numbers are fantastic but is the leadership, determination, and legacy he built at Florida that put him as the greatest player of all time. Urban Meyer said of Tim Tebow when he was still in high school at Nease, "if we don't get this kid, it will set our program back ten years." That is the type of impact he has had on college football. And in the NFL, I can see him in the right system being a good starting quarterback someday. A strong, mobile Quarterback who has the potential be effective in this league. He is a smart player so with a couple years to learn, he can pick up the nuances of reading defenses and different schemes NFL teams run. With regards to mechanics and arm strength: I agree they are poor. But Vince Young also came into the NFL with poor mechanics and all he has done was win games. Any good quarterbacks coach in the league can teach Tim the proper ways to throw a ball in todays league and be effective. Arm strength is something that cannot be taught but in a West Coast style offense, Tim can still be very good. Its in his intangibles where I also see a lot of value, and the moblilty he has of a player his size. Arm strength is really the only question mark with Tebow that there is no forseeable conclusion. But the guy can still throw the ball.

Give him a chance. Maybe I will need to eat my words. I am not promising a second coming of Joe Montana. But in the right system, right team, and around the right coaches...Tim Tebow can play

I belive Tim Tebow will be drafted by the Vikings. I say this because Favre is 40 turning 41 next year if he doesn't retire FOR REAL this year he'll be done next year. Even if Favre stays there 2 years this a great learning experience for Tebow. Then when Favre is out Tebow might have learned a thing or two. There's only 3 other teams out there for him the Jaguars, the 49ers, and the Redskins. Out of those teams though the Jaguars got a young QB there which Tebow probably couldn,t top and by the time there QB would retire in 11 years Tebow would retire 5 years after that. The 49ers already have 2 young QB's so Same situation Tebow's career would be over before it would start. Now the redskins Firstly has Camble who wants out so they would probably draft either Colt McCoy or Sam Bradford in which both of them are better "traditional" QB's unlike the scrambaler Tebow. I belive the Vikings are a perfect place for Tim Tebow. There Tebow doesn't need to be Joe Montana because he would have good recievers unlike the other 3 places I told you about before. 2 years ago I would have taken him as the #1 draft pick now... with all the other talents out there I belive he'll go late 1st round and the team that will pick him up..... well that will be the Vikings I mea where else could he go...... Exactly my point. Tim Tebow will wear #15 for the Vikings next year Just watch I'll be right I'll be right. :)

Definitely destroyer12211221 learning how to throw from Brett Favre has to be one of the best learning expiriences a qb could have. Plus he will be reunited with his top reciever Percy Harvin.

I agree with the Vikings being the prime place for Tebow. If Childres thought Jackson could be his starter then Tebow will be a mega star for him??? Nobody really knows what this kid is capable of and I wouldn't write him off just yet. He is a winner and he motivates people around him to play harder and in the NFL, if he can accomplish getting guys to play harder he has a fighting chance. If for some reason the guys don't buy into his raw raw stuff then he will probably sink. I think Bret maybe done after this year and that is concern with Tebow going there. If Farve comes back the Vikes should grab him. If Farve retires they need to address the position differently.

He will be drafted in the first round, but all I can say is "Remember Ryan Leaf". Heading for a short career.
