Tim Tebow: Top Five Teams That Should Draft Him

Whether you love Tim Tebow or despise him, there is no doubt he is one of the greatest college football players in history. He accomplished great achievements as the QB of the Florida Gators. Two National Titles, Heisman Trophy Winner and countless other awards. He may be one of the most decorated college player’s ever. Tebow finished his career at Florida with 145 TDs (57 rushing); 9,286 yards passing and 2,947 yards rushing. These are impressive numbers for any college QB, but especially for one in arguably the toughest conference in college football (SEC). So why is there a lack of respect? Well there is the so called “NFL Draft Experts” that put him as a second or even third round draft pick. The reason for this, they say, is bad mechanics that they love to point out such as:
- Long delivery and throwing motion
- Bad footwork
- Sub-par accuracy
These are areas of his game that are often pointed out to make their case. However, there are some that point out his intangibles that he will bring to an NFL franchise. Tony Dungy, who coached Peyton Manning, said on The Dan Patrick Show that: “As a coach, I always like winners," Dungy said, according to the website. "Tim Tebow doesn't have the classic throwing motion, he doesn't have the accuracy, maybe, right now that some people are looking for, but I think when he gets into a pro system that really stresses throwing the ball accurately, the big thing is he makes the people around him better. And he's won. ... I think he's going to be a great player in the NFL.” Mark Trestman coached QB’s such as Bernie Kosar and Steve Young, worked with Tebow earlier this year and said “There is no formula, for greatness.”Comments like these from great coaches should make people step back and look at what he brings to an NFL team. I will outline the top five teams that should, and will benefit the most from drafting Tebow in the first round. No, I am not talking about a “situational” QB. I’m talking about a full time, starting QB in the NFL.
