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: 5th Round

You guys are being homers with thinking Tim Tebow is going to be a first rounder. The guy has to completely change the way he plays the game. You will not see anybody take a chance on him until the 5th round. If Minnesota takes a QB it will not be Tim Tebow. Why the f*** would they take him over better pro prospects. Shoot, I would take Tony Pike. Screw all that "Raw! Raw! Look at me, I should have been a male cheerleader!" crap. My main concern about Tebow is how many gallons of tears will he shed throughout his career because losing will happen a lot in the NFL.

i'm going to give tebow his dues - the kid is a winner and that counts for a lot. look at the combine results. not just his ridiculous physical capabilities, but how they are saying he OWNED the interviews and his football IQ is top - notch. to say that tebow is incapable of getting better is simply retarded.

to guarantee, in the SEC, that you will NOT lose anymore games - and that fulfill on that statement says something. it says he has the drive to do what needs to be done. period. i'm sure tim is welcoming the hate - and he'll likely shut the haters up. i dont see him going past the first round - now because he is the greatest QB prospect - but because he will make himself one of the best in time.

Hey andy, you talk like you know everything, and oviously you do not! 5th round pick, please! He wouldn't go that late if he entered the combine as a MLB! Get real! Say what you want about how bad he is, but he is a winner! Won't get past the 3rd round. Why do you act like Suh isn't a stud either? Berry is great and I actually agree with you that he is the best prospect, (which is hard to believe)but not by much, Suh has great hands/strength/quickness and will be a perennial pro bowler. Go wherever you want to get your info, but your opinion isn't valued on this message board!

Prediction: 2nd Round

Tim Tebow would be great in these 4 franchises:
1. St. Louis - lets face it, St. Louis needs help. with Suh and Tebow in the first two rounds, St. Louis will get out of this deep hole they are in
2. Oakland - they have below average quarterbacks. Jamarcus Russell has lost his thunder and the Raiders need something new to get back to what they once were, Super Bowl Champions
3. New England - Bill Bellicheck wants his answer to Miami's wildcat formation & with Tebow, they can get it done... plus the need a back up to TFB
4. Jacksonville - David Garrard isnt doing that well with this offense. they need something new ASAP
5. Minnesota - I'm not sure whether or not Favre will return but they need a quarterback to lead the franchise to the Super Bowl after #4 is done. & plus they can have a reunion with him and Percy Harvin
