Tebow:

AYPC:
5.4

Long Run:
32

TD Rushing:
6

From the NFL combine:

Newton Tebow Advantage
40 4.56 4.71 Newton
20 2.6 2.66 Newton
10 1.58 1.55 Tebow
Verticle 35 38.5 Tebow
Broad 10'06" 9'7" Newton
20 Shuffle 4.18 4.17 Tebow
3 Cone 6.92 6.66 Tebow

Slight edge to Tebow on the measurables from the combine...but I'll take Newton's accuracy over Tebow's superior athletic ability.

What QB will have more success in the spread option?

Can't call Tebow "dramatically" more athletic than Newton, that's for sure.
