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

Exactly, he'll be drafted solely for ticket sales. The Broncos will suck even harder with Tebow. He was successful only because the offense was built by Urban Meyer. How can anybody say his arm is "above average?" 99% of his passes were 10 yards or less, with Harvin and the like turning those short yardage situations into 20+. He isn't mobile, he's a bruiser that had excellent players surrounding him. Anyone that says Tebow will be successful hasn't followed the draft for very long. And as for "leadership" qualities, Meyer made him his golden boy for a reason. He was the face, not the brains nor the leadership behind the operation. If "character" is defined by false prayers in front of the camera and wearing passages on your face, I'm glad to say none of the NFL hall of fame QB's ever had character. What garbage.

2-3 rounds, I think Tebow will be a QB in the NFL but he is not ready, he is gunna take a few years to develop so no need to reach for him and draft him in the 1st

Tebow has already shown in a short time that he can change his throwing motion and take snaps smoothly from under center. He's obviously quite coachable and has a desire to succeed, so why doubt the guy? He's not a polished product and he won't step into the lineup from day one, but how many guys do anyway? And where is the harm in drafting him anywhere but the top third of the first for that matter? If he doesn't work out so be it, no big loss.

Imagining him being drafted below the spot where Pat White was taken last year is really nuts. White will never be a QB, and doesn't really appear to be much more than a novelty at this point. Tebow is the best QB in college football history. Where is the justice?

Tebow will go to San Fran with their second first rounder I just gotta feelin. He might? make it as a NFL QB, I hope he does because he has amazing dedication, intangibles, and is fun to watch, but played in the spread, has that supposedly corrected, elongated throwing motion, and lacks solid arm strength. In my opinion, one way he would almost definitely excel is a Mike Alstott-esque fullback role.

Tebow to the Vikes seems like it may be the match. He will be as good in the passing game as Tavaris jackson.

Can't compare Tebow to Ryan Leaf, Jamarcus Russell, Rex Grossman, Wuerrfel, etc. although it is always attractive (and easy) to generalize based upon "fill-in the blank," including that he went to the same University. None of these players were (arguably) the greatest college player ever. Or achieved the accolades that Tebow collected during his college career. Set the records he set. Or has already exhibited a change in mechanics that one NFL professional said "blew him away" at the pro day. I could make the exact same arguments against Bradford. He has played out of the shotgun (primarily) and obviously, has never shown that he can be an NFL qb. He is a system quarterback. Take another look at the scouting report, and what strikes me is that Tebow is smart about where he throws the ball. Had a good laugh about him only being a "system" player. See the film on the Sugar Bowl, 31-35, almost 500 yards passing--and these weren't all dink passes. He has shown the ability to throw deep with accuracy. Anyone who doesn't think he can read progressions doesn't know anything about playing qb. He wouldn't have such a great TD to Int. ratio if he didn't know where to throw the ball--with accuracy. So, naysayers keep your hands over your ears and eyes (obviously nothing over the mouth). Don't watch the pro day film on an improved compact delivery. Don't consider that this was after only 5 weeks. Disregard the opinions of professionals, and keep believing that people keep their jobs if they make decisions on draft picks because of media frenzy and hype! LOL If Tebow is taken in the second round, it won't be because of hype, it will be because people who (alot of the time!) make decisions based upon things like football skills, dedication, integrity, character, and that he is a winner (oh those dreaded intangibles).
