Tebow "pretty damn impressive" Wednesday

Posted on: January 27, 2010 6:15 pm
 
After two days of mostly inconsistent performances, the South quarterbacks -- Tim Tebow, Jarrett Brown and Zac Robinson -- each were markedly improved Wednesday.

Tebow, of course, remains the national story and was the biggest surprise to scouts to play so well Wednesday, widely felt to be the week's most important practice.

As one longtime scout told me following practice, Tebow "was pretty damn impressive" today.

Another forecasted that Tebow's big name and brewing confidence could easily result in his enjoying a MVP-performance in Saturday's game.

His elongated throwing motion remains a concern, but there was a night and day improvement today in his accuracy. Tebow zipped slants, threw with touch down the seam and completed various deep balls, including one to down the sideline over Kentucky cornerback Trevard Lindley that was as perfectly placed as Brett Favre's touchdown pass to Sidney Rice that began the Vikings' scoring against Dallas in the NFL Divisional playoffs two weeks ago. Hitting his receiver () in full stride, with perfect trajectory and over the outside shoulder, the pass couldn't have been throw better.

The rapid improvement over the past three days will force scouts to re-think their preconceptions about how quickly Tebow could adapt to the NFL.

Why Senior Bowl Shouldn't Effect Tebow's Stock

I have never and will never understand the NFL talking heads.  They are so sure about their draft analysis, and yet you get guys like Tom Brady- not exactly an under-the-radar prospect, considering he came from Michigan.

Since Tim Tebow has left Florida, the anti-Tebow (as an NFL QB) sentiment has grown louder- and probably will continue to grow louder over the next several years.

Critics point to his mishandling of snaps during Senior Bowl practices, and his elongated delivery.  Let's explore what we really learned from the Senior Bowl, and how it should effect Tim Tebow's NFL Draft Stock.

Tebow "pretty damn impressive" Wednesday

Tim Tebow is a coachable talent. His mechcanics need work, but his work ethnic will allow him to star in the NFL. Not right away, but within a few years in the right system.
