READER POLL: Should the Jaguars Draft Tim Tebow?
Tebow played quarterback for Nease High School in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, where he became a Division I-A recruit ranked among the top quarterback prospects in the nation as a high school senior.
In college at the University of Florida, Tebow was a dual threat quarterback adept at rushing and passing the football. He led his team to two national championships and counts a Heisman Trophy among his many awards.
When it comes to the NFL Draft, there is a split of opinion...
According to former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden, he could "revolutionize" the pro game. Says Gruden: "Tim Tebow is 250 pounds, and he's the strongest human being that's ever played the position. He can throw well enough at any level."
Former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy said he would pick Tebow with a top 10 pick, and would take him over any quarterback in the 2010 draft.
On the other hand, NFL analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. believes Tebow does not have the intangibles to play quarterback in the NFL.
"I don't think he can be a fulltime quarterback. I don't think he can be the quarterback of the future for you, but I do think in the third round, maybe the second round, he'll be the same as Pat White," said Kiper.
One thing is for certain, drafting Tebow would likely bring a lot of Gator fans into the stadium and help out an NFL franchise that has struggled mightily to avoid television black-outs.
