INDIANAPOLIS — His mechanics, delivery and arm strength might be questioned by some, but there are no doubts about Florida QB Tim Tebow‘s leadership skills.

In talking with several team representatives Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine, I was told that Tebow conducted some of the best interviews of all time. His positivity, composure and passion were on full display.

Tebow’s legend precedes him, and his ability to handle the attention and pressure also impressed teams. The fact that he would come to practice at Florida over an hour early to sign autographs for fans especially stood out.

Having a player who connects with the fan base in such an intimate way is important and sometimes more difficult to find than a chiseled frame, which Tebow also possesses.

Another interesting note: Tebow is the rare combine participant without brand-name shoes. He simply sought out the lightest shoe he could find, regardless of the maker.
