2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
Tebow enjoyed another outstanding season in 2009 even though he did not score as many touchdowns and did not win any championships. He completed 213 of 314 passes (67.8 percent) for 2895 yards, 21 touchdowns, and five interceptions. His best passing performance of his entire college career came in a Sugar Bowl rout of Cincinnati in which Tebow went 31-of-35 for 482 yards and three scores. On the rushing side of things, Tebow racked up 910 yards on 14 carries and he found the endzone 14 times. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner did an especially impressive job of bouncing back from an early-season concussion sustained against Kentucky. While his ability to excel at the next level remains a question mark, there is no denying that Tebow is an extremely smart quarterback who rarely makes bad decisions. At 6'3 and 245 pounds, he is a load to bring down when he tucks it away and runs. He is deceptively nimble and elusive as well. Off the field, Tebow is as solid as they come; a team leader, humanitarian, and just about everything else. The question, of course, is if Tebow can become a serviceable dropback passer in the NFL. Urban Meyer's Florida offense put Tebow in ideal conditions to succeed, so it remains to be seen how he will respond in passing situations against NFL defenses. Tebow has no fear sitting in the pocket, but he needs to do a better job of feeling pressure. His delivery on passes also starts way too low and has to change before he can become an NFL quarterback (this is the most well-documented red flag). Defensive linemen will have a field day of knocking the ball out of his hand if he continues with this same throwing motion. Tebow will not be as good in the pros (after all, he was one of the best players in college football history), but he cannot be discounted either. He has had some good offseason workouts to the extent that he has been invited to the upcoming NFL Draft. A first-round selection is out of the question, but all bets are off after that.
