He has a pretty decent arm.
He's definitely not the most accurate, but a good QB coach can help him
Speed - definitely not
Physical strength - a good asset for a QB who is going to play for one of the bottom half teams.
and qb's that need completely overhauled usually go in late rds or undrafted... they're called pratice squad fodder

Even as a QB, I give Tebow a better position than practice squad fodder. I mean hell even Ryan Leaf had his moment. Then again, that may be the reason Tebow doesn't get his.


I've been wrong before so if I'm wrong here, it's just one more notch in the belt!

A Team that really seems to be interested in Tebow is Jackson Ville with the 10th pick. They are definitely not going to take tebow with that pick and the owner of the Jags lost a TON of money last year. They may look to trade down to a pick like the 18th and maybe we can move up and Take a great player like Joe Haden or Cj spiller. The Fans at the senior bowl chanted we wont Tebow and the Jags need another Q and this would be a great choice money Wise also. The only way to see if it works is to do. i think this would be a great move for us to do.

Tebow will most likely be there in the 2nd round when Jax swings around again. They will RUE the day that they sign Tebow in Rd. 1.

I really believe the Browns will take Tebow, along with trading away either Quinn or Anderson (maybe both). They really need leadership as a team and this guy can give it. Still would like to see another Tim Couch situation though...

I'd LOVE to see Cleveland waste their first pick on this guy. Couch is >>>> QB over Tebow, and he failed miserably. It would be the ultimate worst case scenario for all involved. A kid who lacks the skillset to play the position on Sundays in a poorly run organization that has a long track record of ruining talented QB's.

But it won't happen. Holmgren knows Tebow is 3rd Rd material at best...

I agree with pretty much everything said in this thread

But we're just fans

Perhaps the players should let their organizations do the talking:

Tebow-to-Jags talk isn't sitting well with at least one actual Jag
By Holly Anderson

Remember those rumors, way back in the fall, about the Jacksonville Jaguars setting their sights on hometown hero Tim Tebow before he'd even played his senior season? That owner Wayne Weaver was said to be considering plucking the Tebow Child early in the draft as a sales-boosting gambit? Lately, the scorn of the scouts and his obvious struggles in the Senior Bowl haven't tempered local enthusiasm for Tebow as the draft draws nigh, but at least one member of the franchise isn't afraid to express his, let's say ... misgivings about adding Tebow to the roster, according to the Florida Times-Union:

[Offensive lineman Uche] Nwaneri posted on the Jaguarsí Web site that, while cashing a check, a bank teller started talking about how Tebow will save the Jaguars.

So Nwaneri posted his five points on Tebow, with capital letters:

"1. He can't throw, PERIOD.

2. He can't read any coverage other than probably cover 2 or man.

3. The QB Wildcat WILL NOT WORK IN THIS LEAGUE. PERIOD.

4. He doesnít know how to take a snap from center.

5. HE CANíT THROW, and thatís really something you either have or not."

I guess that settles it, then. Obviously, there's nothing the kid can do to help the team. Oh, and one more thing:

Nwaneri then urged fans to buy tickets because he doesnít want to come out "for pregame warmups to a COMPLETELY EMPTY STADIUM ANYMORE."

Let's talk business, Uche: Whether or not the Tebow Child can make a successful transition to the pro game on the field, putting warm bodies in seats is obviously among the greatest of his many other talents. Give the people what they want. And even if Nwaneri and the legions of critics are right that Tebow is bound for NFL flopdom, I guarantee thousands of Georgia fans would be willing to make the drive down to the site of so many ****tail Party aggravations for the sole purpose of watching their former tormenter operate behind a line that might not feel much like blocking for him.
