AFC West: Where Tim Tebow might land

By Bill Williamson

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is working to refine his throwing motion. Will he play QB or some other position in the NFL? Let’s assess his chances of landing in the AFC West.

Denver: The Broncos will likely be looking for a quarterback in the first three rounds. It all depends if Denver coach Josh McDaniels believes he can make Tebow a quality quarterback. There had been speculation in recent months that Tebow could fit in with New England. If that’s the case, he’d fit in with Denver. McDaniels is a Bill Belichick protege who believes in the Patriot Way. Denver is looking for a talent it can develop, but there is no major urgency. That could play into Tebow’s favor because he is going to need time before he is ready to play.

Draft probability: Medium.

Kansas City: Kansas City isn’t necessarily looking for a quarterback. There has been some talk the team could be interested in Jimmy Clausen to reunite him with new Kansas City offensive coordinator and Clausen’s former Notre Dame coach, Charlie Weis. But that’s a unique situation. I don’t see Kansas City looking at quarterbacks with other top picks.

Draft probability: Low.

Oakland: This is an interesting situation. Oakland will likely be looking for a quarterback in the early rounds, and we all know how unpredictable Al Davis is when it comes to the draft. It wouldn’t be a shock at all if Davis went against the grain and took Tebow in the second round. Davis doesn’t care if a player is raw or if he is considered an unfinished product. If Davis thinks a player is a winner, he will strike quickly. Yes, the squeaky clean Tebow doesn’t exactly seem like the perfect Raider, but it could happen. What a great story that would be -– Tebow in the Silver and Black.

Draft probability: Medium.

San Diego: The Chargers are set at quarterback and won't look to draft one.

Draft probability: No chance.
