If Jacksonville took Tebow at #10, I'd laugh my ass off.
I expect a major reach with him.
Regardless of Tebow’s actual talents, his persona and star power may be too compelling for him to last through the entire first round. We already know that Jacksonville Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver has stated publicly his interest in drafting Tebow, the hometown kid.
“Star power is incredible, and Tebow is an iconic figure,” Weaver said in September. “That’s very compelling. He clearly is an outstanding football player and would be an asset to any football organization.”
This move (JAX drafting tebow with the #10) would rank right up there with the Raiders drafting DHB last year, a real bad move. No value whatsoever.
This is purely a save the franchise for the city of Jacksonville draft choice. Tebow is nowhere near ready to be a NFL QB. He has horrible mechanics and it will require a couple of years under a good QB coach to turn him into a NFL QB.
JAX needs a Pass Rusher in the worst possible way and I would expect them to draft one with their first pick. If they really want to draft Tebow they could get him late in the 1st by trading back up with their 2nd and a 4th to get him, or just wait and get him with their 2nd round pick, #42.
With this kind of mock I go "no trades".
