2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Tim Tebow

  • Good height and great musculature
  • Solid arm strength
  • Very good deep ball accuracy
  • Great pass rush sense and pocket instincts
  • Athletic and can move chains with legs
  • Extremely powerful runner
  • Good trucking ability; picks up yards after contact
  • Good character and strong work ethic
  • Prototype leader

  • Absolutely horrendous footwork; has not gotten better since freshman year
  • Plays in run-option offense
  • Doesn't throw smooth ball; bad touch
  • Inaccurate on intermediate routes
  • Extremely long release
  • Very bad passing mechanics
  • Locks onto primary receiver
  • No pro reads in offense
  • Left-handed
  • Tucks and runs
  • Doesn't make pro-style passing progression reads
  • Comes from program with bad QB pedigree

    Summary: 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.

    Player Comparison: Byron Leftwich (Passer)/Mike Alstott (Runner). Tebow has a very similar release to Leftwich and he will also struggle to read defenses in NFL. He also has Mike Alstott's elite power running attributes with the ability to get yards after contact.
