    What franchise would be best suited for Tebow, and where will he actually end up?

    This. His skills are all wrong for the pros. I see him in backupville in 5 years or less.

    Maybe so. I think he's better than Colt McCoy in the long haul.

    The NFL, for several years now, has been becoming increasingly pass friendly. Think of your elite NFL quarterbacks. Not a one of them can run for shit, because you just can't do that in the NFL. The defensive players are too good. You may have been a star scrambler in college, but these guys are just as big and bad as you were and they WILL shut you down. Vince Young floundered in the pros because he can't outrun elite DEs and LBs. They're as fast as he is.

    Mike Vick was the only real exception to this recently, and he wasn't a true dual threat...he was an undersized RB that could half-ass a pass when he had to.

    Elite QBs now:
    Manning, Brady, Brees, Rapelisberger, and fast risers like Matt Ryan are ALL passers. Any mobility is used to keep the pass play alive...there are no option plays in the pros.

    Tebow's ground game means nothing in the NFL, which means unless he can pass at an elite level (he can't), he's going to be a development project for several years like any other rookie QB.

    IMO: I think Tebow will do better in than Clausen in the long run. He's got tons of potential which has yet to be tapped into. Clausen is peaking now, but doesn't have room to improve. If Tebow isn't able to cut it as a QB, he'd be one hell of a fullback. Ideally a team with a "wild hog" offensive set would work well with Tebow. That being said, I would love to see him to be taken by NO (if nobody else picks him up first) as Brees' backup. He's just an all around great athlete.

    The best QB in the draft is Bradford. I'm hoping to see him go #1, as has been predicted, and helped the Rams turn their program around. I am also very interested to see how McCoy does in the NFL. He was a great college QB, and I don't think the experts give him enough credit. Had he not got injured in the National Championship, Texas would have gave Bama a run for their money.

    I think he'll work mechanics out. Nobody goes into the nfl, especially a quarterback, and expects to play like peyton manning. Worst part is, i'm a florida state fan, i've hated the guy for four years. I just think he's gonna be pretty damn good in a couple of years.

    College stats are meaningless really and don't translate into someone being or not being an NFL star. Case in point, Tom Brady who was a late draft pick vs. everyone who went in the first round in the 1999 draft class. With the exception of McNabb everyone in that class was a bust. You can be a stud in college and not amount to anything or the other way around.

    The draft would be a lot easier if all players were a given. I really don't think Tebow will be anything exceptional in the NFL. Gotta be saying something that many don't even have him going in the first round. Much better QB's than him IMO. No that it means he will suck cause like I said late rounders have turned into superstars. But I think a lot overhype him way too much.

    I'm not a college FB guy but I'd say from what I read that Buffalo takes him. They need a QB and Jim Kelly apparently raved about him.

    Too bad 90% of his passes were under 15 yards, his receivers are the ones that should be credited with all of those yards and TD's

    I hope Tebow has a great NFL career. Sometimes highly touted guys are a bust ie:Darren Mcfadden, Jamarcus Russell.

    Still nobody has had an opinion on what franchise plays the style of football that would best embody his style of play. Anyone?
