If Collin Klein wants to avoid the Tebow comparisons, it would help if he could improve on his throwing motion, accuracy, arm strength and overall mechanics.
Yes, he has a long way to go.
Klein already had a stellarly horrible week of practice leading up to the game, and his performance in the game itself wasn't exactly a shining testament to why he should be a quarterback at the next level.
I think I'm being fairly diplomatic while saying that.
The saving grace for Klein was that he was the East's top rusher and showed the ability to be a fairly good H-back, tight end or even wide receiver at the NFL level. If I were him, I'd learn from the mistakes made by Tim Tebow, whose constant insistence that he should play quarterback is pushing him out of the league, and be willing to accept the fact that if he is drafted, he will have to move to one of the three positions I mentioned in order to have a long and successful NFL career.
Because as a quarterback, Klein just isn't going to cut it. Hopefully, for his sake, his performance in this game is the wake-up call.
