Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: Broncos Quarterback Worth Fifth Round Draft Choice

Tim Tebow is going to get traded. The only questions now are about the destination and the cost. While we previously reported that the Broncos were hoping for two picks — a second and fifth round choice — in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft, Charlie Casserly has bad news for the Broncos — he doesn’t think Tebow is worth much at all.

“I’d be surprised if there is much of a trade value for him,” Casserly told the USA Today. “I think it’s true that he could move the ball in the Denver offense, but if you break down the majority of his games, he didn’t throw the ball well. Coming out, there wasn’t a lot of interest in him, and that’s usually a pretty good indicator of trade value down the road. I’d be surprised if he went for much better than a fifth rounder.”

While Tebow definitely represents a media circus around him, he also took the Broncos to a playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last season. He’s a hard worker, a solid citizen and an incredible athlete who could help the team in a number of ways. It’s hard to see a team like the Jaguars or Dolphins not trading for him, especially at such a cheap price.

That said, it would not be surprising if a team like the Patriots came in and grabbed Tebow while his price is low and the Broncos desperately want to move him.
