I love it that Tebow went in the first round. He’s a winner, and the Broncos won’t look back on this decision. Here’s an excerpt of the report from the Palm Beach Post:
ESPN’s Mel Kiper trashed Tim Tebow at the Senior Bowl, calling him a fourth-round pick who will have to switch to tight end in the NFL. Former quarterback Joe Theismann suggested that Tebow retire in January to save himself from embarrassment as a professional.
Few people thought Tebow would be a first-round pick.
Instead, the quarterback with the strong faith and growing endorsement list proved them all wrong Thursday night when the Denver Broncos selected Tebow with the 25th pick of the first round of the NFL Draft. Tebow was the second quarterback taken, behind Sam Bradford (No. 1 overall) but ahead of Colt McCoy and Jimmy Claussen, who many expected to be selected ahead of Tebow but who were not drafted in the first round.
