On April 21, Tim Tebow didn't even know which NFL jersey he'd be wearing this season. Today, the NFL announced his # 15 Broncos jersey was the top-selling jersey for the month of April, surpassing even jerseys that had been on the market for the entire month.
The Broncos shocked the NFL when they took the Florida quarterback in the first round of April's draft despite widespread concerns over his ability to succeed in the NFL.
Tebow was one of the most decorated football players in the history of the NCAA. However, few expected the former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion at Florida to be taken in the first round due to flaws in his mechanics.
Time will tell whether the Broncos' selection of Tebow was a smart football decision, but--as the AP points out--"His celebrity clearly trumps the debate over whether he'll ever make it as an NFL quarterback."
