I will give Klis credit where credit is due!
I dont believe its a co-incidence that Tebow was being worked out by the Broncos TODAY....the same day that Scheffler was traded away to Detroit.
I have maintained that Tebow is not quick enough to be a running back, not tall enough to be a Recieving Tight End....but as a H Back like Dallas Clark (6'3 and 255lbs) he holds some REALLY interseting value.
Dallas Clark was a CONVERTED LINE BACKER that only went to H Back in his SECOND year of college.
He ran a 4.65 in his 40.
Compare Tim Tebow. 6'3. 236lbs. Ran a 4.71 with a low of 4.62 at the combine. Very similar to Clark.
NOW....consider this. Tebow has room to bulk up, and is an experienced runner with the ball. ANY CHANCE THAT MCD AND XANDERS WORKED HIM OUT AS A H-BACK AT DOVE VALLEY TODAY?????
Tebow could be a WEAPON at H Back.
As Mike Klis points out in his article here.
This makes sense on so many levels:
- Gets Tebow involved in the game in his first season.
- Plays into McD's strategy of multi skilling.
- Still allows Denver to use Tebow's QB skills as well.
- McD might be one of the only coaches to go with this thinking and have the BALLS to try.
- Allows Denver a lot of flexibility with its roster on game day.
- Makes picking Tebow in the 2nd cost effective and have value.
- Tebow has an understanding of routes from being a QB.
- Tebow already possesses many of the skills needed for H Back.
Tebow could be the ultimate weapon.
Hat tip to Mr Mike Klis. I am the first to give him a hard time, but he is onto something here. Tebow is tougher than Kordell Stewart and has a bigger skill set. Are we looking at Denver's new weapon???
READ his article here. It is very thought provoking....and makes sense.
