Flash Analysis

The Denver Broncos made perhaps the most surprising move of this year's first round when they selected University of Florida QB Tim Tebow.

By selecting the athletic signal caller, it's obvious head coach Josh McDaniels believes he will be their quarterback of the future--and won't be playing another position.

But when that future is remains to be seen.

Tebow is known to have poor mechanics, so poor that some personnel evaluators believe his skills don't translate to the NFL level.

The expecation is that Tebow will probably sit and learn for at least this season and perhaps two while he gets his throwing mechanics adjusted.
