Tim Tebow is on his way to Denver. In arguably the most surprising draft story of the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos made a stunning decision to trade several draft picks (second, third, and fourth round pick) to move up and select Tim Tebow with the 25th overall pick. The uncertainty regarding where Tim Tebow would ultimately be drafted – many scouts and critics believed he would fall into the early second round – was a hot topic leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft; however, few would have predicted this.
Drafting of Tim Tebow Makes for Interesting Quarterback Battle in Denver
The Denver Broncos have an interesting quarterback situation and subsequent depth chart battle brewing after their 2010 NFL Draft selection of Tim Tebow. Before adding Tim Tebow, a former Heisman trophy winner and University of Florida legend, the Broncos had already worked in the off-season to retain last year’s starter, Kyle Orton, and acquire Brady Quinn, himself a collegiate fan-favorite, from the Cleveland Browns. Now that Tim Tebow is in town, a move that really makes one wonder what kind of position competition second-year coach Josh McDaniels is looking for, the Broncos look like they’ll be heading into an extremely motivating training camp.
The Denver Broncos have obviously made clear that they expect Tim Tebow to be their quarterback of the future; whether or not he will win the quarterback battle soon is completely unforeseeable, however. Regardless, by selecting Tim Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, we all know that the Broncos aren’t looking to conduct some kind of experiment. It’s obvious that they saw something in Tebow that validates his high draft picking.
Tim Tebow Brings Intangibles and Class to Broncos Locker Room
Personally, I believe that the Broncos have a good player coming their way. I’m not exactly sure if the surrendering of all the draft picks was necessarily worth it for a team that is rebuilding, but, if anything, the Broncos can be confident that they are bringing in an extremely high-quality individual. Just a week shy of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Broncos traded star wide receiver Brandon Marshall, a player who was constantly struggling with off-field issues, and now it is clear that the Broncos are looking for players who can represent their organization with class. Tim Tebow is definitely the man to do that, and he certainly has what it takes to be a solid player in the NFL.
