NFLdraftcountdown Updated Mock
Scott Wright from NFLdraftcountdown has updated his 1 round mock:
Draft Countdown - 2010 NFL Mock Draft
At #22 he has the Pats taking ... Tim Tebow, QB, Florida.
"Surprised? Crazier things have happened on Draft Day and I really believe someone will select Florida’s Tim Tebow much earlier than they should. Remember, it only takes one team. It’s no secret that Bill Belichick is a big fan of the Florida program, plus he has been searching for the right guy to implement the Wild Cat into New England’s offense. That is why they showed a lot of interest in Pat White last year and one of the main reasons they selected Juliun Edelman, who was an athletic college quarterback. Plus the Pats have four picks in the first couple of rounds so they can afford to play around a bit. Tebow is going to be one of the most controversial prospects the NFL Draft has ever seen. An amazing leader with out of this world intangibles, Tebow will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest college football players of all time but there are some serious questions about him as a pro prospect. Some feel Tebow profiles as more of a tight end or fullback at the next level but he wants to play quarterback and will likely be given that opportunity. After spending four years in Urban Meyer’s system Tebow will essentially have to be reworked from the ground up. Whether it be his throwing motion, footwork, taking snaps from under center, reading coverages or going through progressions there is just a laundry list of things he will have to work on. The bottom line is Tebow’s probably 2-3 years away from being able to run an NFL offense but he has the talent and work ethic to eventually do it and you know he will charm the pants off of decision makers and coaches in pre-draft interviews. While he is being groomed as Tom Brady’s backup and eventual successor the Patriots, who place a high value on versatility, could utilize Tebow in the Wildcat, as a short-yardage runner and an H-Back."
Excuse me while I go vomit ....
There, I feel better now. Jesus Christ, what crap. And he has us passing on OT Bruce Campbell, DT Dan Willians, DT Terrance Cody, and OG Mike Iupati, among others.
The most interesting thing is that Wright has Rolando McClain going #15 to the Giants. No way he falls that far, but if he did slip a bit I would hope we would trade up for him.
