Tebow On NFL Nerwork

Don't know if any of you jsut saw Tebow on NFL network, but it was good. I know there's a lot of Tebow haters here but who he's been working with in Marc Trestman, Sam Wyche, Noel Mazzone, some of the best QB coaching minds. Just by watching the video you can see he's improved his throwing tech.
Plus his work ethic is unheard of! His football iq you can tell is great. I beat you draft him (like mayock says) give him 2 yrs I bet he will be a stud! He will work so damn hard on it, it will pay off & benefit a team...liek us! I wouldn't be surprised if we grabbed him in the 3rd.

I've gotta say, been pretty impressed with Tebows effort in doing what it takes to be a QB in the NFL. I've been one of his biggest critics in the past years, but nothing is keeping this kid down. They or I, have been ripping him about his footwork and release, what does this kid do, go out and get 3 NFL coaches to help him, when he could've just waited till he got on a team to do so. Like I've said in the past though, I love this kids will to win and leadership, things that cannot be taught. I have this feeling that if Tebow drops to the 3rd or 4th round, Sing and McCloughan just might turn in the slip.

Check his interview here, good kid and seems like a pretty football smart one too. Link

I've been in the minority of supporters for Tebow. He understands all his cons and knows what scouts will be looking for. It is a shame that Urban Meyers didn't really prepare him for the pros, but like you said, his will to win and leadership just can't be taught. He's going to do all he can to become a starter in the NFL. It may take a year or two, but he is definitely going to progress.

If we drafted him, he'd be our #3 QB with Davis stepping up as our #2, assuming Smith does good next year. Then there would be absolutely no pressure in Tebow starting, it would fall on Davis.

But I think Tebow will become a sponge in the next few years in the NFL. He"ll sit, learn, listen and work on technique try to translate it to the Pro's. IMO that's the best route he could take to becoming successful in the NFL. I think if he's even thrown in the fire his second year it could take a toll on his career and confidence.

Agreed with everything you said.
He's going to be pretty good. IMO, he's too talented not to succeed. He has a strong work ethic and seems motivated to proving that he can be a QB in the NFL. These QB are over-analyzed every year and still many of them don't pan out. Mechanics can be taught, so why draft a guy early just because better mechanics? Natural talent and work ethic are far more important than a prospect's mechanics. As long as the player is coachable, it can be corrected, provided the talent and drive is there.

BTW, his voice just annoys me. He's too soft spoken. Plus, it's a sin to draft someone early if they still have their V-card. He would need to booze it up and get some ass before I'd let him in my locker room.
I stopped reading at Mark Trestman.

Agree with your fist paragraph 100%. And I think GM's and coaches in the NFL will be forced to take more chances on a spread offense taught QB due to it being the dominating offense in college. We're seeing more and more spread QB's coming out of college, only they're not going as high than the Pro style taught QB.

As for your second paragraph:

He's dating some girl that's on American Idol. She looks good, but if you're not going to hit it, who cares?
I'm in the camp that says Tebow will be a player in the NFL. However, I see no way the 49ers draft him.

If they did, it would mean they would cut Shaun Hill, and that would be silly. Without Hill, if Smith went down early with a major injury, they would be left with two TOTALLY inexperienced QBs to guide a team some think could be the winner in the NFC West.

...not going to happen...IMO.

I expect someone with an established veteran QB to take him in the late first thru late second round. I don't think he will drop into the third.
