Here's one that might prompt more than a few people to mutter something along the lines of, "What the hell?" (Possibly with a different four-letter word at the end.)

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has been invited to New York for the draft.

This is so lame. Players that get invited are guys that are a lock to be in the top 10 or 15 picks. Not a should be 6th round q.b.

I know Tebow was a great college football player and all but I am so sick of the guy. I hear his name and I just get angry now.

I hope Tebow has fun sitting around until Saturday afternoon. He will enjoy watching the draft Thursday and Friday night with all the Jets and Giants fans. Hopefully one of those teams draft him so they can boo him out of the building.

How is this good for Tebow? It is always embarrassing for the last guy picked, who has to sit around and look like the last kid picked to play kickball at recess, and that is when the guy has to wait until the 42nd pick, not the 238th. How is it going to be when Tebow is sitting there all day? Isn't it true that the draft is going to be spread over 3 days this year? So is Tebow just going to keep coming back, day after day?

Maybe this means that the NFL has information that idiot is going to take a flyer on Tebow early.

I don't think it is good for Tebow. Yes, the draft is spread out over 3 days this year.

You'd have to think this is because one or more of the teams said enough to the NFL office to convince them this was a good idea.

Yep someone has made a promise.

Or maybe Goodell is going to step down and hand over the reins to St. Tebow.

How awesome would it be if Al Davis drafted him in the first round?

There's been more than one time that I've told myself, there is still something worse than being a Redskins fan these days.

ESPN is reporting that he was invited based on his recent workouts.

Well that is great that he was able to throw a little better today. I am sure what he did today will directly show how his mechanics will be when there is a rush in his face or he is trying to read a defense.

This is a joke by the NFL to invite him. And if any team takes him higher than the 4th round, their entire front office and scouting staff should be fired.

It really does make you wonder what he possibly could have shown that would change minds that quickly. If he is selected in the first few rounds I have to think it's a team using him as a publicity stunt in some sense.

Someone that covers the NFL that was there this morning tweeted that he made some changes but he also now has a pause in his throwing motion that hurts his throwing motion as well.

I can't remember who tweeted it. I will try and find it.

Tebow looks better. But looks like he's still got some kinks in that motion. The windup is still there under simulated pressure


Ball still going down low whenever Tebow is on the move. Looks like he's kind of forcing that new motion. Accuracy just mediocre.


Looks like Tebow worked out one kink and developed another. There's still a small loop & now a bit of a pause in motion. Mechanical looking.


Tebow doing throw-on-the-move types of drills. Still has a little loop in the motion. Looks more compact still

This former NFL scout thinks the Browns could target Tebow in the 2nd round:

@MoveTheSticks: Maybe the Browns are a sleeper Tebow team... Holmgren took David Greene in the 3rd and Tebow is much better coming out (http://twitter.com/MoveTheSticks/statuses/10638816054)

@MoveTheSticks: RT @BeatdownRadio: You've got to be thinking 2nd round when you say the Browns right? > that's my guess.. (http://twitter.com/MoveTheSticks/statuses/10638885853)

As much as I'm sick of Tebowmania, I'm guessing that he'll conduct himself a bit better about not being the overall #1 pick better than Steve Francis did.

Why not? If Brady Quinn doesn't work out, draft Tim Tebow.:blink:

MH thinks he can build NFL QBs with his bare hands. He might be up for the challenge. He is also very much into the ‘character’ dudes.

If there was a QB coming out of college who was the exact opposite of Dan Marino in terms of almost every basis upon which you judge a QB, then Tebow is that guy (well, except for the fact that they both had mediocre wonderlic scores).

Tebow's release is ridiculously slow. The point at which the ball is released from his hand is far less than ideal. He doesn't appear to have adequate arm strength. With the exception of the wishbone and triple option, Florida runs an offense which is about as far away from the pro game as you can get. This all adds up to Tebow having the inability to make the throws that have to be made in the pros. There are plenty of QBs that aren't ideal in the above categories and have still been good, but I can't think of a single one that's been deficient in all of them and has still played well in the pros.

Tebow shouldn't be picked any higher than the fourth round unless someone wants to convert him to a tight end or a linebacker.

The reason is obvious. The NFL wants revenge for the abortion ad/lie. They're going to embarrass him

Mel Kiper is saying the Vikings will pick him at #30.

IMO Tebow in the 3rd round is a great value. Tebow in the first round is a bad, bad pick. There's been a lot of smoke about the Broncos taking him at #42, and I would be grateful to see the Vikings take that decision out of their hands.

The thing is, he's already made huge improvements in his throwing motion, feet, etc. And he's an exceptional runner. A guy that can take coaching and is willing to improve is a positive, and Tebow is highly coachable. Give him two years under an NFL staff and he could be a decent NFL QB.

Has he improved his thinking motion?

I think this is posturing.

The kid is smart. Charging ridiculous coin for autographs and public speaking engagements, he's a businessman. He may never have a successful NFL career, but he will make a whole lot of dough on the Christian circuit. Pretty brilliant if you ask me.

His advisors are smart. They know the draft will only decrease his marketability.

I bet his autobiography is already written.

Better said.

I have been on the Tebow bashing wagon for a long time, but there is something about him that makes me want to see him become a great NFL QB now. That probably is Mel Kiper and Todd McShay's fault though.
