But if Tebow showed roughly the same kind of attributes he did at Florida, or even a slight improvement based on his off-season work, opinions would probably stay the same overall. There are teams still convinced that he's worth a two-year "redshirt" to get the hang of the pro game, just as there are other teams that wouldn't spend a third-day pick on him.
We'll have more to add from those who are on the scene, but here's an initial Tweet from Michael C. Wright of the Florida Times-Union:
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.
The "slight pause" comment has me thinking of Charles Barkley's golf swing. Maybe Hank Haney's available to work with this kid?
Of course, Wright's already getting flak from his followers - there's a very large group of fans (specifically, all the Jaguars fans in attendance holding up different signs exhorting the Jags to draft Tebow RIGHT NOW) who want this to work on a no-matter-what basis. There's also a pretty good-sized cadre of journalists and coaches, looking for the next Favre to fawn over, who will blow smoke up whatever Tebow does. ("I don't care if he digs a tunnel with his throwing motion - this guy's a winner!") The truth will most likely be somewhere in-between the true believers and the non-believers, and that's what we'll bring to you today.
- Tim Tebow
