    Meyer's system turned out a #1 overall draft pick QB in Alex Smith... wonder why it didn't hurt Smith but it hurts Tebow?

    because its more than the system, its mechanics as well.

    Tebow will never be a starting NFL QB but could become a very good running back or a tight end. IF it were up to me I would draft him in the 4th or 5th round if he is still available based on his athleticism

    If Pat White can get drafted as a quarterback then so can Tebow. Look for Jacksonville to draft him to boost ticket sales.

    i think he'll make it. some team has to give him a chance and let him learn for a few years. you can learn mechanics. you cant learn size, athleticism and dedication that he does have.

    I agree that he'll get his shot. However, its not unheard of for good and even great college QB's to flop in the NFL.

    absolutely, but think about what they were like.

    not athletic enough
    dorsey
    wuerffel
    hodson
    david greene
    etc

    dumb/lazy
    russell
    leaf
    akili smith
    shuler
    etc

    tebow wont be like these. maybe he'll be like joey harrington though.

    good observation. those listed without a doubt fit into said category.

    you had me til here. thats not a good comparison although there is no comparison for tebow.

    im anxious to see how he does. nothing would surprise me.

    although saints should take him in the 5th if hes still there for a short-yardage back.

    he's like jacob hester on steroids and with god in his back pocket.
