One of the interesting storylines as the Patriots prepare to face the Broncos is which player will be given the role of quarterback Tim Tebow in practice. The Patriots place a high value on their scout team, regularly touting which players best prepare the team in the days leading up to a victory. As for who place the role of Tebow, here are some options:
1. Julian Edelman: Receiver/defensive back would seem like a natural choice given his background as a college quarterback who runs well.
2. Brian Hoyer: Backup quarterback usually plays the role of the opposing team’s quarterback.
3. Kevin Faulk: Veteran running back has four career pass attempts with two completions and is the consummate team player.
4. Other: The Patriots could sign a practice squad player just for the purposes of mimicking Tebow. It might help if he’s left-handed, like Tebow.
