To be honest, at first I was not even close to being a Tebow fan, actually one of his biggest critics, I admit it. But after watching this kid throughout his career, his leadership, poise, moxie and will to win made me sold. Sure his mechanics will most likely hurt his stock, but IMO, that is a blessing in disguise. Expectations will surely be low, coaches and world knows hes needs to be brought along slowly in the NFL. I'm pretty sure no HC in the NFL that drafts him will be forced or force him into the line-up. So he has mechanic issues, well doesn't our OC and QB coach get paid to teach those kinds of things or do they just take him as he comes with no warranty?? Honestly I'd take him in the 3rd round if he was available, for some strange reason our past few 3rd round picks have been somewhat of disappointments, so why not let him sit and learn how and what it takes to be a QB in the NFL. I'm sure this kid has heard every single word of criticism about him, but the funny thing about him is he has some kind of a knack at proving people wrong.
(And you'd be a fool to judge him off one ALL-Star game, in which they give you one week to learn an NFL playbook, change of mechanics and chemistry with your temporary teammates.)
I would take tebow over Alex Any day .. He truley is a leader and watching him in college and the sugar bowl he definatly has the "IT" factor.. Alex is the Dumbest smart kid and CANNOT lead a team, He is there to pick up the check and Folds under pressure. How many 300+ yards games has alex had ? Not many . pick tebow play alex for 1 last year if he Alex doesnt fold before midseason.

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!
I'm no talent expert, but even I can see that his release is way too f'n slow for the NFL. Unless he can correct that, he's gonna be a horrible NFL QB.
If he's there in the 5th round we'll talk, but I wouldn't consider taking him til then. His skills just don't translate to the pros. He's rushing skills resembles a full back and you're not going to ask your QB to play that kind of style.
