When you compare a player to another you compare the entirety of their career whether you want to or not.
TD being obscure and then leap frogging others to make the roster and have meaningful playing time is rare for a UDFA to do.
Even rarer for one team to do it more than once.
If you wanted to say you had faith in him to become a player for us that's one thing.
But to mention TD and then attempt to qualify it as a comparison in situation only when they're not similar it not feasible.
Steve Young and Tim Tebow are both left handed. Oh but wait I can't make that comparison unless they have similar career trajectories.
