2. Tim Tebow, Denver Broncos

The former Florida quarterback emerged as a starter later in the season and developed a cult following for his untraditional style that led to victories. Tebow has fizzled into the playoffs, but the fact that there is so much buzz (both love and hate) around him got him to the number 2 spot. In the beginning of the season, Tebow was completely outside the top 10.
