Broncos pick Tim Tebow

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

ENGLEWOOD, CO (AP) - Josh McDaniels made college quarterback sensation Tim Tebow a first-round NFL draft pick Thursday.

The Denver Broncos, who selected wide receiver Demaryius Thomas of Georgia Tech with the 22nd pick, moved back into the first round by trading three picks to Baltimore for the Ravens' first-round pick, then took Tebow at No. 25.

The Broncos gave up choices in the second (No. 43), third (No. 70) and fourth (No. 114) rounds to move up and take Tebow, Florida's southpaw quarterback whom McDaniels raved about last week.

Although it's highly unlikely he'll be the starting quarterback in five months' time, Tebow will begin his NFL career Sept. 12 in his hometown of Jacksonville when the Broncos play the Jaguars in the season opener.
