Finding opinions on Tim Tebow’s pro prospects isn’t difficult. Some, however, are closer to the source than others.
The latest comment comes from Bengals WR Andre Caldwell, who played with Tebow for two seasons at Florida. Caldwell told Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com that Tebow will never be an elite passer, but he praised the QB’s work ethic and said he would take his former teammate in the “late second round” if he was the general manager.
“He needs time,” Caldwell said. “He needs to sit behind one of those good quarterbacks for about three years because I know he’s going to put in the work and the effort to be a great quarterback. He’s going to learn. I don’t think he’s going to be an elite passer ever. But he’s a playmaker. He’ll get the ball there. He probably can’t make the prettiest looking passes. But he’s going to use what he has to his advantage. Running. Scrambling. Making passes. He’s got a strong arm and I think he can make the throws, but they may not be the prettiest.”
