A quarterback should be the fire behind the collective desire of a football team. Many fans in the Washington DC area feel that Jason Campbell doesn’t have the same spark to ignite a team as some quarterbacks to, such as Dre Brees and Brett Favre. If the Skins want a leader at this position, Tim Tebow could be a choice.
Walter Football does a breakdown of Tim Tebow, and he would bring to the table. Matt McGuire says:
If I could take Tim Tebow’s mind and put it into the body of some college quarterbacks, then they would be No. 1 overall picks. However, we have seen quarterbacks with outstanding intangibles bust at the next level. It will take Tebow 3-4 years to learn an NFL offense to where he could actually start a game.
Tebow’s best fit at the next level will be at fullback or H-Back because his best skills are his running abilities; there’s too much development involved to draft Tebow as a franchise quarterback, though the success of Pat White in the Wildcat offense could help his draft stock. Looks to be a second-round pick with his great intangibles and versatility.
I feel that Tebow may have a difficult time transitioning to the NFL game. In his early days at Florida, Tebow was a back up who served as a switch up quarterback who came in for short runs/scores. If he will be a quarterback in the NFL he has to adjust a few things, and his throwing motion is at the top of that list.
His ability to move will be a great asset, he can make plays and has a gun as well as the ability to hit the deep ball. He does however have bad footwork and his college offense would not make any impact in the NFL. Some say he can be a good NFL player, but not at quarterback-we shall see. He was invited to attend the draft, we will see what the draft for him.
