A Tim Tebow Broncos jersey didn’t seem like a possibility – at least not for round one. But a Tim Tebow Broncos jersey will be made for the first round draft pick, after the Broncos surprised pundits everywhere. For all of Tebow’s accomplishments, no one had him picked in the first round and not before Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy. In any case, Denver had things settled at quarterback, with Kyle Orton starting and Brady Quinn brought in at backup. But because of their surprise pick, the Tim Tebow Broncos jersey will outsell them all, while he tries to make a Mile High impact.
The Broncos did a lot of moving around last night, as they traded their higher draft picks. But they made another trade to get the 25th pick from Baltimore, and that’s where they made their gamble. Instead of getting higher rated prospects, they traded down to get Tim Tebow in a Broncos jersey.
The Heisman winner and national champion is now finally ready for his NFL career. But if he still wants to do it as a quarterback, he has an uphill battle. Leaving aside his mixed reviews from experts, Tebow will be third on the depth chart at best, behind Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn.
Although the Tim Tebow Broncos jersey will be a best seller, it may not be seen on the field that much early on. Denver got Orton in their trade with the Bears last year, and has made a major commitment to him. Meanwhile, Brady Quinn will now be next in line in case Orton gets hurt, or struggles.
Both Quinn and Tebow are among the most hyped college players of the last decade, yet Tebow is a much bigger commodity. The Tim Tebow Broncos jersey is already been bought up online, even though an image of it hasn’t been revealed yet. It will likely outsell the ones for the top picks, and perhaps even outsell those of Broncos’ veterans.
Denver made a big splash in the short term to get Tebow, but success in the long term is more uncertain. They have made draft gambles before, as they took running back Knowshon Moreno first last year, although many said they didn’t need another running back. The Broncos have a lot more problems – as evidenced by their late season collapses the last two years.
For now, Tim Tebow Broncos jersey sales are the biggest immediate upside. But since there are low expectations for him, and since they already have quarterbacks, they may not suffer too much if Tebow fails. Yet Denver could easily exploit his running abilities, since their running game has been powerful in recent years.
In the meantime, the Tim Tebow Broncos jersey is already for sale, for $79.99 on NFL.com.
