The Denver Broncos already have committed to Tebow as their starter, at least for now. However, with a career 47.3 completion percentage, Tebow has some fans clamoring to draft a replacement come April.
Tebow will be in his third year as a professional in 2012. He's a big, strong presence whose strongest attribute may be his leadership skills. Tebow has quickness and a very powerful arm as well.
His biggest challenges will be mastering his decision-making in the pocket and accuracy. I believe Tebow can read NFL defenses well, he just has to release the ball quicker and show confidence in his throws.
If Broncos management stays true to their word, then obviously this is a moot point. It's still fun to speculate, just in case they pull off a surprise on draft day.
