When people mention the draft the thing that your most likely to heat about is "Where is Tim Tebow going in the draft". Here is my question: Is Tim Tebow the only player in this draft? You have Sam Bradford, Jimmy Clausen (who just about every sportswriter I have talked to hates), Jevan Snead,Colt McCoy! Those guys are all better pro prospects then Tim Tebow.

Tim Tebow was also badly overrated in college. He is a great leader but when you talk about playing the quarterback position Tim Tebow is average at best! The only reason you would draft Tim Tebow is if you need a Tight End, a Halfback ,Fullback, or if you just need to sell tickets. But if you are talking about a long term franchise quarterback Tim Tebow is not that guy!  


As one Jaguar player said: "He can't throw,PERIOD,He can't read coverage other than Cover 2 or Man, the QB wildcat WILL NOT WORK IN THIS LEAGUE PERIOD. He does know how to take a snap from center HE CAN'T THROW, that's something you either have or not". 

That was actually spot on by a Jaguars player that iv'e never heard of! All the media's attention is on where Tim Tebow is gonna go. While guys like Bradford,Clausen,Snead,McCoy will be playing at the QUARTERBACK position in the NFL. Yeah he does have Two national championships. But you know else has two national championships? Matt Leinart! 

In conclusion to this article I want to add Clausen is a cocky punk but don't forget about Vince Young and how he matured behind Kerry Collins. I think the Seahawks will draft him and sit him for two years and Clausen will have good career. Also to the Jaguars Don't draft Tim Tebow in the first round!
