Forget about Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators losing to Alabama last year to knock them out of the BCS Championship Game. I'm not sure why people are so determined on that one game making or breaking his career in the NFL. What they should be looking at is, how much Tebow has accomplished over the course of his college career.

Recently, actually since Tebow was a starter at Florida, people have questioned how well he will perform at the professional level. Really, I am not entirely sure how people can even question his ability, not only is he a great natural leader, but he is the kind of player with a skill set you can build your whole team around.

Tebow who has won two BCS Championships, a Heisman Award, All-American every year he has played, shattering SEC records in rushing and passing touchdowns, receiving constant Player of The Week Awards, really how is this guy not a good draft choice?

The Miami Dolphin's offense and Tim Tebow practically go together perfectly, Tebow is fast moving and very difficult to tackle or sack. Fast moving is practically the theme of the Dolphins offense, with the latest developments of the Wildcat Formation. Which on a side note has spread like wildfire throughout the NFL, in different variations and styles. Now, the fact that Tim Tebow could be lining up in a receiving slot can be incredibly dangerous, making him a potential threat if not covered. I know, I know, a cornerback on a quarterback, how is that even a match up? Well if anyone watched Florida's games, Tebow easily can juke out a corner, and sometimes, believe it or not, even linebackers.

For all you Miami Dolphin fans out there, can you imagine Ronnie Brown with Tim Tebow in the same backfield together? Because I sure can. With Ronnie Brown, almost as power full as Michael Turner, it begs the question why not mix speed with power? This would be an almost perfect backfield, with the threat of Tebow scrambling out to the weak side and Brown running straight up the middle. I know this is going to sound kind of crazy but, what if the Dolphins tried running the option? Tebow is the perfect QB to run this type of play with. The Dolphins started the Wildcat, a crazy idea, why not start the option up in the NFL?

One more reason drafting Tebow would be a benefit for Miami is Chad Pennington is never going to come back, and even if he does he will be weak and ineffective, to be brutally honest. After having three shoulder surgeries what are the chances he will be able to perform as he did before? Chad Henne is an excellent QB, but realistically he is not a starter, he is a fantastic back up. He proved that after Pennington went out for the whole end of the season. But he did not get them to the Playoff's as Pennington did, which is really what the Dolphins want. Tebow once again restating what I said previously in the article, Tebow is a fantastic team leader, something that the Dolphins are hurting in with their original starting QB and team captain down for the count.

Tebow as far as I can see, appears to be a perfect fit for this team, not only would he be great for their offense, but he would also be playing in his home state. There is no doubt that he would rather play in Jacksonville, that is of course if he is basing his desired team off the closest proximity to home.

I don't see any reason why the Dolphins don't pick up this key player, the problem is when do they draft him? Popular belief is that he will go early third round, now should the Phin's take that chance and risk losing him? A safe bet would be to pick him up in the second round, that way there is no chance of losing him in the predicted third. But the Dolphins have a lot of holes to fill on there defense, and now even some on their offense.
