PASS PLEASE

Sorry but all the things mentioned above trump whatever leadership abilities he has.......PASS NO MATTER WHAT!

Have you guys all forgotten the last qb that took us to the playoffs?? Jeff Garcia wasn't very accurate, didn't have a strong arm or good mechanics he couldnt even set his feet when he threw the ball somtimes. Tebow has the it factor, hes a leader of men & a proven winner.

After watching our timid qb struggle to win (that we drafted 1st overall) I can't imagine not atleast considering Tebow a proven leader in round 2. Especially with some teams looking at him in the 1st.

You guys are to quick to buy into what ever the "so called" draft experts feed you. Tebow is less of a project & more of a diamond in the rough. He has the skills that can't be coached, his upside is through the roof. Not to mention his fire and passion for the game would be well paired with coach Sing.

The guy strives for greatness period, that's the type of qb id like to see in red & gold.

You must be talking about accuracy... and his lack thereof.

But to where I would draft Tebow, I think the 4th is the highest I would go to get a fullback.

lol i think thats a bit harsh. Safety maybe?. If hes gonna play QB in the NFL hes going to have to sit behind some guys and really work on his mechanics. prlly for two years or so. doesnt make sense for us to take someone like him when we already have a project QB in the wings and one thats maybe...just maybe and hopefully..coming into his own.
Tebow would be a great pick, in rounds 3-7. We could cut Noodle Arm, elevate Davis to 2nd stringer, making Tebow our third stringer.

He has Alex's physical intangibles but with the mental toughness, leadership, attitude that Alex is missing.

He will lead a team and put them on his shoulders. He is what we are missing at the qb spot.

I would love to have him in the 2nd even wouldnt mind using our second 1st on him.

picking tebow would be a huge steo back were an o line away from the playoffs and matbe a returner and a saftey away from going really really deep /in the pllayoffs

I have mixed feelings with Tebow. I thought for sure heading into this year that there was NO WAY he could play QB in the NFL. After watching him this year, i'm not so sure. But i'm not intrigued enough to spend a 1st or 2nd to find out.

However, if we were to be aggressive in the offseason and fill 2 needs with a couple of new starters. Then traded down from #13 to the latter portion of the 1st and picked up a 2nd. Then used or 2 1sts on 2 key new pieces. I would be ok with grabbing Tebow with our 1st 2nd round pick. Because getting that 2nd, 2nd round pick it would be like having a free pick to play with. That would be the ONLY way i'd be ok with taking the gamble.

Actually I do remember Jeff Garcia and he was unorthodox to be sure. Two things, he actually could handle snaps from center and he had a quick release. Tebow could learn how to play QB from center and change his mechanics, but I don't want the Niners to be the team to waste a draft pick and have to wait until he does.

Finally, I am sure you watched Tebow's fiery attempt to rally his Florida teammates at the start of the 4th quarter of the SEC title game. Very similar to Singletary's many sideline meetings with his team to change momentum. What was the result? They were shut out in the 4th quarter and Tebow underthrew a pass that was intercepted by Javier Arenas to seal the deal. Enough said..........

tebow will not be a QB very long in the NFL, he will eventually be converted to a FB
One would think that with so much faith, he would have faith in the offense.

Here's what the National Football Post's Wes Bunting wrote about Florida QB Tim Tebow today: "When ... Tebow was able to see the throw, I thought he did a good job accurately delivering the football. However, at this stage he simply isn't a decisive quarterback in the pocket and really struggles when asked to anticipate throws in the pass game." Anyone who has watched the 49ers closely over the last few years knows you could substitute "Alex Smith" for Tebow in that sentence. You have to wonder if Smith's slow NFL development will cause Tebow, another Urban Meyer protégé, to drop in the draft.
his slow-mo release of the football will be his downfall in the nfl. FUMBLE!

Yeah he's got the Byron Leftwich release. Ugh, it's kind of annoying watching all these noobs like ninerforyears and GMNiner invade the draft forum and say a bunch of not too smart things gives me a headache. Pick Tebow! Trade Alex for McNabb! Sign Peppers! Daft Dexter McCluster in the 1st! Don't pick oline!

The only way I think we would consider this is if the 49ers could get him in a later round, and they committed the spread offense for the long term. In the spread, it would make sense, because then you would have interchangeable QB's who are familiar with running that style of offense. But in a pro style offense, Tebow is just too much of a risk. It would be Alex Smith all over again for the first few years.
I'd love to have Tebow too bro! However, I believe we absolutely have to get Iupati in the first and maybe another OT. Gotta get that beef up front first. But, hey Tebow in the 4th or after....Hell Yeah, lets do it.
I am happy for you!
