Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, I am sure you know that Tim Tebow has been one of the most criticized quarterbacks in football.

Tebow has been criticized for absolutely everything from his unorthodox throwing motion to his Christian beliefs. But nothing is wrong with Tim Tebow.

He will not be an NFL bust because he has a combination of three elements that most NFL quarterbacks in today's game could not even dream of having: Strength, accuracy, and speed. 

You see, most NFL QB's today have only arm strength and arm accuracy at their disposal. But Tim has the ability to throw the ball deep with accuracy and he can beat linebackers with his speed.

He ran the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in 4.72 seconds, a good time for quarterbacks, so that proves that he has the speed to survive in the NFL.

Regarding the throwing motion, at Florida's pro day Tebow showed many NFL coaches that he could successfully throw using the new motion, completing the majority of his passes throughout the 30 minute workout.

The Bottom Line: Tim Tebow has the potential to be an average starter to a good starter in the NFL.

The only way Tebow will become a bust is if Denver decides to not work him in slowly but with him behind Kyle Orton and possibly Tom Brandstater, that likely will not happen.
