    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. :eek:

    "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.

    Jesus tapdancing Christ would that be horrible. If they are gonna get Tebow, take him in the 3rd or 4th and make him a backer.

    If McClain is only 7 spots away you go get him.

    I would bet all four of my limbs that the Patriots do not select Tim Tebow at pick 22. They had better not, because my head would explode, and then I'd be a headless, limbless, unhappy guy on draft day.

    Methinks Patriot Nation would all look very similar.

    It would almost be enough to drive one to be a Jets fan ... almost.

    That is one awefull pick. He graded Tebow as a second or third round choice in his scouting report. This pick not only doesn't makes much sense if you consider the Patriot's needs, it is also a huge reach.

    It's a good site for information. I take their mocks with a large grain of salt, but they aren't always this bad. They had us taking Darius Butler at 23 last year in their final mock, and they had us taking Brandon Meriweather in 2007. But this mock is absurd.

    We already have a pretty good Wildcat candidate on our team in Julian Edelman if we really wanted to run a few gimmick plays a game.

    Yeah let's get Tebow, then get to wait "2-3 years" while he's "rebuilt from the ground up" just so he can run a handful of offensive plays out of a single formation... no no no it's not an entire offense, just 1 formation.

    Also, you can definitely tell how serious the Patriots were about getting Edelmen into the wildcat since they let him take exactly 0 snaps from center this season. Yeah, the wildcat's exactly what will get the Patriots deep into the 2010 playoffs.

    I just wish that God would give Tebow another season at UF so we could watch him there again, and then the Patriots could use the Raiders' 2011 draft pick to get Tim #1 overall, where he deserves to be taken.

    While I can not see BB drafting Tebow, because Tebow fails the three down test, I do actually like the thought of Tebow coming to Foxboro.

    Depending on what happens with Wilfork, I would not mind seeing BB take Tebow in the first.

    On a different perspective if we could take Mcclain and Tebow in this draft that would be great leadership on the team which is something we need....i am not suggesting we take Tebow but i was just making a point....We NEED LEADERS

    I hear the word "Leader" and I cringe a bit. I think this whole concept of leadership is vastly over rated.

    Having spent 5 years on a college football team, the guys in the locker room that I respected and feared, especially as a younger player were the "enforcer" types. These are the guys that hold all the other guys accountable; whether it is in games, on the practice field; in meetings or even in film study.

    These enforcer types get in your face and get vocal and/or physical with you. They are very forceful; but mostly I think they are the glue that keeps 76 plus different personalities all fairly focused on the task at hand. (FYI the reason it is not 80 is because nobody reaally cares what the kickers are doing.)

    A "leader on the field" like Brady is a great example. A leader in the locker room like Faulk or Sanders or Mayo is nice as well. But an enforcer like Bryan Cox, Willie McGinest, Lawyer Milloy or Mike Vrabel gets the attention of other players and that is what I think our 2009 team lacked.

    01/22/10 - In nine years of preparing draft-eligible players for the interview process at the NFL combine, Ken Herock has worked with more than 500 players, including 40 quarterbacks, readying them for the crucial Q-and-A session that each prospect must undergo at the February audition in Indianapolis. But never has Herock - a longtime talent evaluator who spent most of his 40 seasons in the league as a personnel director or general manager - encountered a product like Florida QB Tim Tebow. In an unsolicited phone call to ESPN.com earlier this week, Herock, who worked with Tebow for several hours, uncharacteristically gushed about the Gators' star. "He's by far the best [prospect] with whom I've ever worked," said Herock, who operates "Pro Prep," a popular service that simulates a combine interview and familiarizes players on the subjects with which they will be confronted by league scouts. "He walks into a room and he just energizes it. Whatever 'it' is, he's definitely got 'it.' & Even for a guy like me, who's done this for so long, you almost get goosebumps." Said Herock: "His release might be a little low at this point, but a lot of people talked about Philip Rivers' delivery too before he was drafted, and look at what he's done. I've heard all the supposed [negatives]. But I watched [Tebow] on the field and his velocity is good enough, and so is his accuracy. As far as his learning, you don't have to tell him anything twice. And he's a student of the game. I recommended that he watch some tapes of Steve Young, and he said, 'Oh, I've already done that.' He wants to be good. He wants to succeed. And he will succeed." - Len Pasquarelli, ESPN via NFL Draft Scout

    Wright loves ruffling the feathers early on. He knows in his mind what his real mock will be which he doesn't put out until the day before the draft.

    Belichick spending a first round pick on Tebow just to have a Wildcat option is hilarious.

    I laugh at you, Scott Wright.

    If Bill drafted T-bow at pick #22 - then that would definately be considered as an early warning sign of Alzheimers.
