Assessing Tebow landing spots

Posted by Chris Brown on January 28, 2010 – 10:09 am

It’s been nothing but Tebow time this week at the Senior Bowl for better or worse. National Football Post columnist Michael Lombardi had an interesting look at what teams fit the profile for drafting the Florida QB, and the Bills are on his list… sort of.

Lombardi maintains that teams with an offensive mind leading the coaching staff and with final say are more likely to draft Tebow. The Bills have the first part in Chan Gailey, but not necessarily the second part as it is clear that GM Buddy Nix has final say.

Still the Bills made his list as a possibility. Here’s what he wrote.

What about Buffalo? I’d say the Bills fit the profile based on what new head coach Chan Gailey likes in a quarterback, but it might not be appealing to the front office. As a result, they don’t fit the profile completely. When considering where Tebow might go, think offensive decision maker and a team that needs a quarterback. 

Lombardi also listed Washington and Denver since they fit his criteria.

One other thing I’ll throw in is the fact that Gailey, like Tebow, was a quarterback for the Gators in his college days. Not trying to stir anything up, just mentioning a simple fact.
