Fill in the blank

And with the x pick of the third round, the _____________ select Tim Tebow, Quarterback, Florida.

Tim Tebow wants to play quarterback in the NFL. After the senior bowl awkwardness, everyone except for Tim Tebow knows that just isn't going to happen. But this kid is a gamer, a born leader, and he will make an impact-- but where?

I've heard that Jacksonville is so desperate to boost ticket sales that they might take the hometown boy. This would be consistent with the Jaguars' paying good money for bad "skill position players" but it seems like a stretch to me. They need to fill other holes.

Some people have pointed toward New England because the Patriots incorporate elements of the Florida Gators' offense and they also like utility players. Possible, but the Pats don't have a third rounder this year. Would they really trade up to get Tebow? Not likely.

You know who should take Tebow?

Wait for it....

The Miami Dolphins! Tebow is perfect for them. After the Fins' season went down when Ronnie Brown did, they realized that their offense requires two things, either RBs who can throw or QBs who can run. Tebow fits this perfectly. Deep down, even Tebow might agree this is the best fin.

No speed. He can pound out three yard gains but the Fins already have Lousaka Polite (best short yardage runner in the league) to do that. I think he'd be best on a cold weather team that needs some power, like the Bills or Seahawks.
