Reader: Tim Tebow pick shows Broncos are stupid enough to draft a punter in first round

Sunday's putrid Broncos-Cardinals game prompted plenty of fans to demand the benching of Kyle Orton in favor of Heisman Trophy-winner Tim Tebow. But one reader has a very different view of Tebow's prospects as an NFL signal caller -- and he's not optimistic that the Broncos will make good use of a top-five draft pick even if they're mediocre enough to earn one.

Even with a top 5 pick, the Broncos would probably draft a punter. I am unclear on why we have Tebow anyway. His NFL quarterback career will be about as good as Bradlee Van Pelt's.
