Bubba Caldwell On Tebow: A Chance To Be A Great QB, But Not An Elite Passer

New, comments

Bubba Caldwell is in Tampa working out, but spoke to Bengals.com this week about his former teammate. Caldwell gives Tim Tebow credit, but notes the same thing everyone else does; Tebow may never be an elite NFL guy.

"He needs time. 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."

Caldwell also said he would pick Tebow in the late second round.
