Tebow has another supporter
As the speculation surrounding one of the most popular players in college football history increases with every passing day, coaches, analysts and experts continue to weigh-in with their thoughts and predictions on the future of Tim Tebow.
Can he start at quarterback in the NFL?
Will he get drafted in the first round?
What did he have for breakfast this morning?
But if you really want to know about Tebow the quarterback, one of the more qualified individuals to speak on the matter would have to be Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman, who spent time this past winter working with Tebow on his throwing mechanics.
"I can only imagine what he's going to do in one year or two years, because he's going to outwork everybody else and find a way to figure it out,” Trestman told Jeff Schudel of the News-Herald in a recent interview.”
Trestman has some experience in the quarterback department, having coached NFL greats Rich Gannon, Steve Young and Bernie Kosar, to name a few. The guy obviously has an idea of what an NFL quarterback should look like.
"I believe in the right environment Tim Tebow will figure this out. He doesn't have explosive arm strength, but he has more than adequate arm strength to throw the ball in the NFL and make all the throws. I saw him do something totally different in seven or eight days.
That environment Trestman is referring to will be determined in roughly 16 days when the NFL draft kicks off in New York City.
Until then, we can only wait and speculate. But as the positive reports from people who have worked with Tebow continue to surface, one thing is becoming more and more clear: The former Gator quarterback is going to get drafted higher than most people originally thought.
