Does Tim Teabow have the potential to go #1 overall?
No. He has the mobility to be very successful in the NFL but he hasn't proven that he can throw consistently at a higher level. If he becomes the QB that in high school set Florida state records for passing yards them maybe I'll change my mind but his passing ability is in question for me.
We at least know the kid can run with the best of them, and from his high school footage we know he has a pretty good arm. Obviously he's going to have to adjust to reading defenses and all that, but nothing has indicated he is incapable of this.
My question is if he can nail down all the intricacies of Meyer's offense. The last guy to dominate in this offense was Alex Smith, who was very bright, and the guy who ran it well last year, Chris Leak, was a true student of the game. If Tebow can put in the hours and click with Meyer's offense, he certainly has everything you want physically to be a top draft pick.
If he can show the ability to pass the ball well and make good decisions, sure. His physical abilities and running game would be among the best for NFL QBs, but nobody knows if he can play QB well enough yet.
He already has the size and speed prototype, so in that sense he doesn't really have a ceiling for potential. 3 years of starting experience could improve his passing substantially, therefore he has the potential to go #1.
Well which of the two projects to be a better NFL QB? Stafford or Tebow?
I prefer Stafford myself right now . That being said, I'd like to see Tebow throw more before I judge. All I really know about Tebow is he's good fullback option. I also do prefer pro-style quarterbacks as opposed to dual threat guys, because pro-style guys tend to be more accurate.
