One of the many reasons why no one knew where Tim Tebow would be drafted was because no one really knew where he’d play in the NFL. Is he a quarterback? Will he play tight end? Fullback? Wildcat QB?
Well, the Denver Broncos nabbed Tebow with the 24th pick in this year’s draft and they are now answering that question.
“He’s a quarterback,” McDaniels said Saturday afternoon. “He’s a quarterback. That’s all he’s going to do.”
So that’s that. Unless and until he shows he can’t play QB at the highest level, in which case he’ll be tried somewhere else like tight end or something. But, McDaniels said that Tebow will come in and compete for the starting job immediately.
“Like everybody, he will be competing for a job,” McDaniels said.”I don’t care if a guy is a rookie. If he’s earned the job, he’ll play. That goes for any position. But I’ll say this, he has a long way to go to get there. But he is starting the process.”
