View Full Version : Tim Tebow’s draft stock rising; Cleveland Browns reportedly show interest

In late January, critics pegged quarterback Tim Tebow (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/football/tim-tebow-PESPT008528.topic) as a third- or fourth-round selection in the NFL (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/football/nfl-ORSPT000007.topic) draft because of his struggles at the Senior Bowl.

More than two months later, Tim Tebow's draft stock has soared.

Every day, more teams reportedly show interest in Tebow, possibly as a first-round selection. The Cleveland Browns (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/football/cleveland-browns-ORSPT000038.topic), who have the seventh overall pick in the April 22-24 draft, reportedly are meeting with Tebow.

This comes two days after the Philadelphia Eagles (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/football/philadelphia-eagles-ORSPT000211.topic), who select 24th in the first round, joined the Tebow party, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King.

The Orlando Sentinel's Andrea Adelson reports that ESPN (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/espn-HOC792.topic) draft guru Mel Kiper – a staunch Tebow detractor from day one – has softened his stance on Tebow, claiming the Buffalo Bills (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/football/buffalo-bills-ORSPT000034.topic) could select Tebow with the 41st overall pick.

It's the second round, but that's an improvement on Kiper's earlier stance that Tebow is a third- or fourth-rounder as a tight end or H-back.

The Bills have shown interest in Tebow for weeks, possibly as a first-rounder with the No. 9 overall selection. Keep an eye on the Seattle Seahawks (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/topic/sports/football/seattle-seahawks-ORSPT000058.topic), who have the No. 6 selection. Seattle's pretty high on Tebow, according to reports.

I really can't see any team taking him in the top half of Round 1.

It actually seems unfair to raise the kids hopes like this.

the browns can get tebow , pike,or mccoy in the second.the irish qb could just free fall deep,and right into the 2nd round also.the browns take haden or berry in the 1st.if haden is a true shut down corner,and possible pro bowler.you take the corner over safety.

I heard Jim Kelly took him out to dinner and is very high on Tebow and wants him in Buffalo. I also heard he changed up his throwing motion and is doing great with it. Could explain sudden explosion of interest. Kid has the best character of anyone in this draft probably. leadership.

Teams are showing interest but that doesn't automatically mean first round.

Would love to see it as well. We'd get some top 10 talent falling to us at 12 although I think this is overblown. Jimmy Graham has visited over a dozen teams but I'd be surprised to see him go earlier than the mid-to-late 3rd round.

I can see Tebow being taken after Bradford, Clausen and Colt McCoy but not before but you never know.

This whole time I've been saying that I wouldn't be surprised if the Bills took him at #9. I'd be shocked but not surprised if that makes any sense. The Bills march to the beat of their own drum and they really like him, a lot.

I've been saying it the whole time. Tim Tebow is a 1st rounder. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if he gets taken top 10. The guy has an above avg arm, above avg height, phenomenal football intelligence, off-the charts leadership, off-the-charts work ethic, very good accuracy (I don't care what ya'll say...I've seen him put the ball in some extremely tight spaces), etc. His biggest knock is the slow throwing motion. From what I've seen, his off-the-charts work ethic has already made tremendous strides on that. Sure, he didn't play in a pro offense in college...but why does that translate into he can't play in one in the NFL? From listening to his interviews, it sure sounds like he understands the ins and outs of almost every system out there.

Of course 0.5% of you on here will agree with me, but I see absolutely no reason to not take a chance on him in the 1st. Before 2 years ago, QBs were chosen in the 1st round with the expectation of taking 2-3 years to develop. Why has that suddenly changed? Because of Matt Ryan and Sanchez? Additionally, I also see no reason why Tebow can't be used for the first couple years in the NFL while he develops like he was his first year at UF.

No way a team picks him in the first round, much less the top 10. I think he will likely go earlier than people think, but by that I mean 2nd or 3rd round.

The one place I want to go to for an unbiased opinion on Tim Tebow is Gator Nation.

If the Bills dont take him at 9 i think Seattle could take him at 14

Tim Tebow isn't a bad player. I think he'll do alright in the NFL. The reason he's such a polarizing figure is because the media portrayed him into a poster child...sort of like what Tony Romo is. People think that they have to really hate him a lot or like him a lot with no middle ground in between which is completely untrue.

I'm not sure if Tebow will be good in the NFL or not. Urban Meyer's offense made Alex Smith look really good at Utah, and he's been a bust so far. But, I can see why a team could fall in love with Tebag. If Jamarcus Russell went #1 in the draft, then Tebow could definitely go top 10. He's got size and arm strength, and he definitely fits the mold as team leader. But, I'm not sure he'll be so effective as a scrambler in the NFL. He's an elusive runner and a tough runner, but I actually have never been very impressed with his actual foot speed. I'm not sure that he's fast enough to play any position in the NFL except QB. So if his throwing mechanics and accuracy don't really improve in his first few seasons, Tebow could have a rough experience in the NFL. We all know what being drafted too early can do to a players reputation with sports fans. Just look at Ted Ginn...and his family.

If the the Jacksonville GM doesn't take him in the first round then he is an idiot. How can you argue against picking a guy that is going to fill your stands. If the Jags pick him, they will probably sell thousand of season tickets, the next day. And right now Jags number goal has to be selling tickets because if not this will be their last season in Jacksonville. You can't argue that picking Teabow will not be an instant economic boom for the Jacksonville franshise. He is guaranteed to sell tickets if he is picked by the Jags.

Maybe for 1 or 2 years but eventually the Jags GM will ultimately be responsible for losing the franchise to L.A.

If they don't take Teabow it will be another year of blackouts and empty seats and their will not be a 2nd season in Jacksonville. They have one chance to save the franshise and that is drafting Teabow. Whether you like him or not, you have to admit he will sell tickets in Northern Florida. Even if he is just a roll player there are thousands of Gator fans who will buy tickets to see the Jags play beyond just 2 years.
