the load up and hop isn't going to work for little Timmy in the NFL.
What are you talking about? You are essentially just throwing out some random thoughts and none of it is making sense. Troy Smith didn't get much of a look in the NFL because he was simply too small. With Troy Smith, think Chase Daniel or Todd Reesing. That group is great college QBs who just didn't/don't have the measurables. Vince Young had a lot of leadership qualities and great size. He didn't have accuracy that extended past 15 yards and he didn't have very good arm strength. He throw a lot of wobbling balls. Vince Young was also a run first QB, and that running style was a finesse style. Vince avoided defenders on what essentially became stretch plays. That was a gimmick offense that hid all the decencies. Tebow has great arm strength and stays in the pocket well. His runs are mostly on designed run plays because of natural ability, and if you actually pay attention to his career thus far, you will see that his running has gone down. Tebow is developing as a QB and that has been apparent this year.
Tebow actually is pretty far from Vince Young as a prospect aside from size. Tebow runs up the middle when he does run, but he has developed his patience in the pocket. He steps into the throw well and finishes on his front foot. He has shown the ability to make the NFL throws 35 yards down the field. I don't actually think Harvin is that great of a NFL receiver right now due to his poor route running.
Tebow is a legit prospect.
