Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan Says He'd Have Drafted Tim Tebow

New Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan has been putting himself in the public eye around Jacksonville lately. From parking his $112 million yacht in downtown Jacksonville to hitting local media outlets for interviews. Khan recently however made some waves in a radio interview where he told a caller that if he were in Wayne Weaver's position in 2010, he'd have drafted now Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, even going so far as to telling Weaver he should have done it.

Khan's full quote is after the jump.

"You know something? I think I can tell you this. I had a long chat with Wayne (Weaver) that year. Obviously the Rams drafted Sam Bradford, and I was talking to Wayne then on what they ought to do. I should have an offline conversation with you, OK? I'm going to absolutely talk your ear off. Some of the stuff might not be politically correct, but I share your sentiment. I think, when is the next time Jacksonville is going to have an athlete like Tim Tebow? Coming from being raised in Illinois, I couldn't see Red Grange playing for anybody other than the Bears or Dick Butkus playing for anybody other than the Bears. I don't want to get into 20/20 hindsight, and God help us, the draft record has not been the best with the Jaguars."

Khan did clarify later to Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette however that he did not mean with the 10th overall pick, which the Jaguars used to select defensive tackle Tyson Alualu in the 2010 NFL Draft.
