If Tim Tebow’s agent pretty much knows where the former Florida quarterback is going, and if Tebow’s dad is confident that his son will be a Top 15 pick, might the Denver Broncos, picking 11th, be the team to take him?
Mike Klis of the Denver Post writes that 11th overall would be too high for the Broncos to pick Tebow. But he adds that the Broncos just might take him, especially if they can engineer a trade that has them picking somewhere in the 20s.
Of course, if Tebow’s dad is right, he’ll be gone before a pick in the 20s. But the Broncos have been showing plenty of interest in Tebow lately, and the closer we get to the draft, the more that interest seems to increase.
According to Klis, Broncos coach Josh McDaniels would love to make a bold move, would love a quarterback who’s at least 6-foot-3, comfortable in the shotgun and a proven winner, would love an intelligent, high-character player, would love a passer he can develop as a project, and would love someone who can help the Broncos’ offense in short-yardage situations.
That all sounds like Tebow. Does all this Tebow talk suggest that where there’s smoke there’s fire, or is this a smokescreen? We’ll find out in a few hours.
