In today's NFL, spread offenses and defenses with multiple fronts are commonplace. Coaches crave offensive players who can not only play wideout or running back, but can also return kicks and punts. On defense, tackles who can drop back into coverage and also rush the passer are able to stay on the field all three downs. Versatility allows these players to stay on the field and use their talents for the most time every game.

Here are the 10 most versatile players in the AFC:

1. Tim Tebow, QB, New York Jets
