Next Up: Tebow's NFL Future

What is next for Tim Tebow? How about becoming the most intriguing name of the 2010 NFL Draft? Both the New York Times and ESPN College GameDay had features focusing on Tebow's NFL future.

Much much more about this starting next week, but I do think that the mainstream takes are focusing too much on Tebow's potential as a traditional, pro-style 60-snap-per-game QB.

His more likely NFL future is as a QB -- but a non-traditional one, even a transformational one. Used opportunistically and creatively, Tebow can have an impact in the NFL. Most important: That Tebow be connected with the right coaching, which is something that Urban Meyer continues to hammer home:

"I hope he goes to the right place. I get very concerned about that. There’s no doubt in my mind that he can play quarterback in the N.F.L."
