Basically, Tebow is going to be the #3 QB in Denver. Whatever potential he has as a player, it's not going to be developed in Denver. Which brought me back to how hard BB talked him up. Now, I know ole BB will game people all day long, but I don't think he ever lies--he just lets you miunderstand him. And on Teow he said:
”I think it’s obvious, within the last six weeks, his mechanics, he’s worked on them, and they’ve improved, which is a credit to him,” Belichick said. ”He’s very coachable and he works very hard. I’m sure whatever he feels he needs to do, he”ll work very hard at. Whatever that is. Athletically, he tested very well at the Combine, which you could see on the field.”
Is it feasible to put him at other positions?
”My sense of Tim Tebow is, if you asked him to play nose, he’d play nose (tackle). I think he’s that kind of kid. Whatever you ask him to do, he’d do.,” Belichick said. ”I don’t know what a team would do with him, but I think he’s a real interesting player. He’s had a great career. It speaks for itself. Second leading passer in SEC history, whatever it is. He’s had tremendous production. They hardly ever lose.”
What else do you like about him?
”There’s a lot to like,” Belichick answered.
Now, I'm guessing BB didn't like him as a first or a 2d rounder. But when Tebow gets cut, or is offered for a 5th round pick? Wouldn't be surprised if we scooped him up, and developed him at whatever position BB thought he could be valuable at.
