There's a lot of debate surrounding Florida's 6'3" signal caller. Some question his mechanics, throwing action and accuracy and suggest he'll change position in the NFL. Others believe his determination, leadership and obvious football talent will overcome any other question marks.
Tebow will be a third-year starter in 2009. He has thrown 67 touchdown passes and only 11 interceptions in the past three years. He will have a new quarterback coach this year, Scott Loeffler, who came from the NFL. Tebow should be a top-10 pick in the 2010 draft.
Can he make it into the top 10? I have no doubts that Tebow will have another productive season for the Gators. However, we'll have a lot of tape on the guy by the end of this year. There's already questions as we've raised here - will this be enough to put off a team willing to spend the big money that comes with a top 10 choice?
I have no insider information on the Seahawks' impression of Tebow. Even so, you have to admit he does sound like your typical Ruskell pick. Big school, big production, big character who stayed in school. This is likely a story for another day...
Personally I'll be keeping a close eye on Ole Miss QB Jevan Snead. If he declares, he's my early tip to make a challenge to go first overall next year, or at least the first quarterback off the board.
