That alone makes him different from Tebow. People probably would have considered Tebow for some position other than QB.
People still do. If Tebow wants a shot in the NFL, he has been offered numerous times a contract if he was willing to play FB or TE or some other position that doesn't throw the ball. It's clear that Tebow is a big, physical guy with pure athletic skills, he just can't throw. He just declines to accept those offers, believing he's an NFL-caliber QB. He would have been worth the late 1st round pick he was taken with if he would only convert.
Guys like Manning and Brady are able to play QB well past their mid-30's precisely because they can throw. Guys who never learned to throw properly watch football on TV on Sundays.
