Rick Neuheisel on Tebow's NFL Future

Dan Patrick seems a little obsessed (in a good way) with Tim Tebow's NFL future. He asked Joe Montana about it earlier this week, and yesterday, he asked UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel about it. From DP's blog:
Neuheisel agreed with what Joe Montana said about Tim Tebow yesterday. Tebow needs experience under center and dropping back.

"You have to learn your feet as kind of a metronome," Neuheisel said.

Neuheisel compared Tebow to current Titans quarterback Vince Young. He said that Young [ed. sic-Neuheisel?] was working in the NFL when they were evaluating Young, and realized VY was going to have to use his legs to make plays in the NFL. Neuheisel said that trying to make Young into a drop-back passer was going to be tough. Young didn't want to make plays with his feet and he's run into trouble.

Neuheisel says he thinks Tebow can play quarterback in the NFL, but the transition could be tough.

More on this quote/topic in a little bit.
