Predicto Mobile Community Finds NFL Draft Tough to Call

Voters at Predicto.com make projections about college star quarterback Tim Tebow's position in the NFL Draft. Snackable Media's Predicto Mobile is the largest premium mobile service, with more than one million members text messaging predictions on sports, entertainment and current events.

“[Tebow] has done everything coaches wanted him to do to change for the NFL.”

While this year's NFL Draft features an especially high number of talented athletes, two prominent stories revolve around the fates of quarterbacks Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow. Both men have racked up impressive achievements during their college careers, yet their value at the professional level remains to be seen. Snackable Media's popular Predicto Mobile community has been sounding off on McCoy and Tebow's NFL prospects, as well as other topics on people's minds during draft week.

Charismatic and hard-nosed, Tim Tebow led the University of Florida to BCS glory and in 2007 distinguished himself by becoming the first sophomore to ever win the Heisman Trophy. However, Tebow's passing is far from picture-perfect, and speculation abounds on his NFL chances. Some analysts opine that Tebow will not be able to hack it on a professional level and that he could even fall past the second round of the NFL Draft.

The Predicto Mobile community gives Tebow more credit, with 52% voting that the Gators QB will be selected even ahead of Texas' Colt McCoy, who's won more NCAA games than any quarterback in history. "Team Tebow" voters cite his higher profile in the sports world and potential for growth. One Predicto member comments: "I think he has done everything...the coaches wanted him to do to change for the NFL." McCoy's fans, on the other hand, feel that Tebow simply cannot measure up. One commenter argues that, "Colt is the higher-rated QB; the college offense Tebow ran will hurt him."

The debate between football fans also includes somewhat superstitious topics, such as the belief that harm will come to those who grace the cover of the wildly popular 'Madden NFL' video game. NFL stars who have received this honor in the past few years have suffered from "The Madden Curse" and seen their stellar careers sidelined by injuries or sub-par play.

Today it was announced that 'Madden NFL 11' will feature Drew Brees, the likable quarterback who led the New Orleans Saints to Super Bowl victory last season. Brees beat out two other candidates up for the seemingly-dubious distinction. 79% of Predicto Mobile voters accurately predicted Brees as cover boy - with a large number also hoping that he can evade the legendary curse.
