Wise words and great point from Gene Frenette about drafting Tebow

Next to Terry's piece (see and read here: http://blackandteal.com/2010/02/05/no-tim-tebow-hatred-here/ ) this is the best Tebow-Jaguars article I read recently. Great credits for it to Florida Times Union's Gene Frenette. The second half of the article is very; very good read. And this part concluding the whole Tebow question the best: Anyone thinking the Jaguars should draft Tebow because he'd be a box-office draw misses the essence of a personnel evaluator's job. Let's say the Jaguars reach a lot higher than Tebow's assigned value, selecting him one or two rounds above his grade on the premise that he might sell "x" number of season tickets. Isn't that shortchanging the Jaguars and fans, by passing up significantly better players on the board for sentimental reasons?
