Former teammate Andre Caldwell says Tebow should be a late second round pick



Former Gator receiver and current Cincinnati Bengals receiver Andre Caldwell is among the latest to weigh in on the NFL draft status of former UF quarterback Tim Tebow.

Caldwell told Geoff Hobson of that he thinks Tebow should be drafted in the late second round and that he'll need time to develop in the NFL.

“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.”
