Tim Tebow (610) leads the NFL in rushing among quarterbacks as he has a one-yard on Cam Newton (609). At 6’3″ and 235 pounds Tebow also is built like a running back and Buffalo’s defenders know he’s not afraid to deliver a hit or take one when he’s off and running.
“He can run the ball and he can put his head down,” said Nick Barnett. “We put our head down too and try to tackle him and hit him hard. So it’s one of those guys you’ve got to bring your load and make sure you wrap him up and bring him down.”
“He’s a guy that can spin and shake out of tackles. he’ll lower his head, he’ll try to run over you,” said Chris Kelsay. “He’s a running back at the quarterback position. In their empty sets, they will get all the running backs out of the backfield and run typical running plays with him as running back. Linebacker traps with the quarterback running the football. He’s a guy you have to swarm and get a lot of hats on.
