Collin Klein Should Avoid Mistakes, Similar Fate as Tim Tebow
Collin Klein has to open up to unconventional NFL opportunities or he may see his career disappear before his eyes.
The former Kansas State quarterback finished third in Heisman Trophy polling last season, but he was undrafted coming off his senior season.
Klein was given an opportunity to workout for the Houston Texans this week, and while impressing coach Gary Kubiak, he was not offered a contract with the team. He was asked to workout with the tight ends during the NFL scouting combine and refused. Klein is dead set on his NFL career happening under center as a QB.
He should be open to other opportunities in the NFL that may come as a TE or WR, or faces the very distinct possibility of his career fizzling out before it ever gets moving.
This attitude is similar to the one that has been shown by Tim Tebow in the past few seasons. Other than a hot streak that included one playoff win with the Denver Broncos, Tebow hasn’t shown that he possesses the skill set required to succeed under center in the NFL.
His refusal to be used more creatively in NFL offenses has led to the frustration of the New York Jets, ultimately ending with his release.
It’s a release that hasn’t been met with any interest from other NFL teams.
Klein must be careful not to suffer a similar fate as his unconventional throwing motion has not garnered much faith from NFL coaching staffs. He would certainly find a spot on a roster if he were open to moving around the field and playing different positions.
The Texans liked what they saw from Klein, but not enough to warrant a contract giving him a shot at winning a position on the team’s depth chart at QB.
Collin Klein ultimately needs to check his ego and accept that his NFL future may not lie at the QB position. If he doesn’t, he risks his stubbornness ending his professional football career before it even gets started.
