Tebow to Bills at No. 9?

With all the mock drafts floating around on the internet, you're bound to find one with some outrageous picks. One such website is the National Football Post, which has the Bills taking Florida quarterback Tim Tebow in the first round.

I know the Bills like Tebow and he has the strong endorsement of Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly. But there is no way -- NO WAY -- the Bills used the ninth overall selection on Tebow.

When drafting in the top 10, you're expecting the player to either start immediately or at some point in his rookie year. But Tebow is at least a year away from being ready to play much less start in the NFL.

The Bills have too many other positional needs to waste a high draft pick on a project. ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. has the Bills taking Tebow in the second round, but even that might be too high. I could be wrong but if the Bills don't take Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen in Round One, the earliest they'd draft a QB is the third round unless they brokered a trade to move up.
