NFL Tebow: No. 9 Overall to Bills?

National Football Post throws down the gauntlet: Tim Tebow going No. 9 -- overall -- to the Bills.

As I have written, this is Tebow's ceiling. This will be the highest you see him in any mock draft. (It doesn't seem to be informed by reporting, but as a stunt to get attention: NFP FTW.)

Ironically, Mel Kiper got a lot of attention today for upgrading Tebow to Bills taking him with the No. 9 pick... of the 2nd round. Umm...not quite the same.

Here is the situation for Buffalo: How badly do they want Tebow? Because there is a very very good chance that he won't make it to them when they pick again at the 41st overall pick.

They could try to trade down, because Tebow would likely be available in the teens or early-20s, but (a) there's no guarantee, and (b) doubt anyone would trade with them.

If they really want him and think that there is no other way to get him? That's the once-improbable scenario where Tim Tebow is taken in the Top 10 of the 2010 NFL Draft.

UPDATE: Bills beat reporter Allen Wilson has a response to this "NO WAY," and it's based on conversations he has had with players in the front office. I think Wilson is right -- if the Bills want Tebow, they will have to hope he drops to that 9th pick of the 2nd round... or trade up into the back of the 1st round.
