Sam's "shocking" circumstance -- that he's the "best defensive player in football's best conference," yet only a third to fifth-round NFL pick ("Really?!?")
Sam was a 3-5 round pick prior to his announcement.

That's not to say he's not a great player or that he wouldn't be a great addition to a team regardless of his status, but it is to say that there are ~150 other college athletes turning pro this year that would be better additions to teams.
Third to fifth round still means he's getting drafted and probably playing in the NFL, probably an OLB in a 3-4 system. That alone makes him different from Tebow. People probably would have considered Tebow for some position other than QB.
