Re: Tim Tebow

Yeah looks good.  But "taking chances" is for the second, third, or later rounds!

Re: Tim Tebow

I don't think he's that risky and IMO is the least risky of any QB in next years draft.

Re: Tim Tebow

This is actually one philosophy I like about Carolina not taking a QB in the first.  Yeah we will never get to hit it big on a possible young stud but we will never waste a first rounder either on a QB bust either.  It does make me feel good that we were the first to visit Flacco last year and we had a package ready to pick up Ryan supposedly if he dropped past #5 but he got snatched at #3 so we won't know for sure.  At least we have the scouts to recognize QB talent well so far in their careers.  To be honest I think we have only been busted once or twice in the first all the others we have at least gotten three years out of.

Agreed. He's by far the best QB in next years draft. After he wins his 2nd Heisman and 3rd National Championship this year, maybe his doubters will finally see the light.

Re: Tim Tebow

I wish I could think of examples of other QB's who have done extremely well in college, but their game never translated to the NFL.

I just can't think of any...

I think its because there's so many that fall into that description that my mind can't pin one down.

Not to say that Tebow has no shot of doing well in the NFL, but he'd be more of a project than a complete package and I know the Foxy regime wouldn't want to spend what would be needed to be spent on a project when he can find instant help somewhere else.

Re: Tim Tebow

Any QB taking snaps from the shotgun majorly will be a project he is the furthest from NFL ready IMO.  He may end up being good but his release time needs a lot of work and squaring up his shoulders and his footwork need lots of work.  His mobility will probably give him time to fix these but these issues will give him time to wait in the draft room IMO on draft day.  I mean he basically runs the option for christsakes?????
