Default Clausen, McCoy, or Tebow?

I remember last spring there was a lot of talk about these three QB's; they were big names coming out of college, but there was no real consensus on when they'd be drafted, or if they were good bets to pan out. So now that their rookie year is complete- who do you think has the best career ahead of them?

I think McCoy, he looked alright against the Steelers in the first meeting, not so much in the second tho. Tebow has shocked me in his first start, but I am still not a believer. I think Clausen is done already, I always thought he was overrated anyway. Carolina will go out and get another QB this off season and Jimmy will never see the field again.

if we're talking about "the best career ahead of them", then i'm going with Tebow...

i don't know if he'll ever be a "great" nfl qb, but i believe he'll have a great career no matter where he plays...he's a leader, he says the right things because it's natural for him, not because it's a cliche, he's tougher than nails, and he's smarter than a whip...you add all that with the most humble mentality and you get Tim Tebow.

i believe his career will most likely flourish off the field as well, and i don't feel the same way about McCoy or Clausen.

Last year there were more than a few "experts" that thought Clausen was the better choice.

Out of the 3 listed, I'll take McCoy.

That's all great, but what about playing the positon?

If Orton played the wayTebow did in the last game he would have been booed off the field.

McCoy
Clausen
Tebow.... and he's only 3rd because there's only 3 options.

Tebow in a close one over McCoy. Both are tremendous players as well as fine young men. Win/win situation.
