Call me crazy, but I actually like the Cowboy's pick of Ezekiel Elliot a lot. IMO he's one of the best RB prospects since AP. But the bottom line is if he's as dynamic and effective as he should be, Romo's chances of getting injured much less hit are significantly decreased. Plus if Romo does get injured, Moore (or if they draft a QB) will have much less weight on their shoulders coming off the bench.
Good trucking ability; picks up yards after contact
Good character and strong work ethic
Absolutely horrendous footwork; has not gotten better since freshman year
Plays in run-option offense
Doesn't throw smooth ball; bad touch
Inaccurate on intermediate routes
Extremely long release
Very bad passing mechanics
Locks onto primary receiver
No pro reads in offense
Tucks and runs
Doesn't make pro-style passing progression reads
Comes from program with bad QB pedigree
Summary: If I could take Tim Tebow's mind and put it into the body of some college quarterbacks, then they would be No. 1 overall picks. However, we have seen quarterbacks with outstanding intangibles bust at the next level. It will take Tebow 3-4 years to learn an NFL offense to where he could actually start a game.
Tebow's best fit at the next level will be at fullback or H-Back because his best skills are his running abilities; there's too much development involved to draft Tebow as a franchise quarterback, though the success of Pat White in the Wildcat offense could help his draft stock. Looks to be a second-round pick with his great intangibles and versatility.
Player Comparison: Byron Leftwich (Passer)/Mike Alstott (Runner). Tebow has a very similar release to Leftwich and he will also struggle to read defenses in NFL. He also has Mike Alstott's elite power running attributes with the ability to get yards after contact.
