Report: Tim Tebow will have workout with Redskins

On a day the Redskins locked up one quarterback, they're apparently preparing to work out another. The Redskins are one of five teams that have scheduled individual workouts with draft prospect Tim Tebow, according to the Sporting News.

Tebow participated in the University of Florida's pro day on Wednesday afternoon in Gainesville, Fla. With a variety of prospects on display, scouts and executives from most teams were on hand, as well as a handful of head coaches. Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen were not present, but they didn't need to be if they plan on viewing Tebow up-close at Redskins Park in the coming weeks.

Tebow will also workout with Buffalo, Cleveland, New England and Seattle, according to the report.

The former Heisman Trophy winner is not projected by most to be a first-round draft pick, but because he could go early in the second round, he reportedly will be invited to New York to attend the NFL draft next month.

The Redskins hold the draft's No. 37 pick, which could put them in prime position to select Tebow in the second round, if they choose. Working out for scouts and coaches Wednesday, Tebow unveiled a new throwing motion intended to erase concerns about his poor mechanics.

Much of the pre-draft speculation has focused on the Redskins possibly drafting a quarterback with their first-round pick, the draft's No. 4 overall. But with a major need at the left tackle position and with the increasing likelihood that Sam Bradford will be chosen by the St. Louis Rams with the draft's first pick, it's certainly possible that
Washington passes on a quarterback in the first round and waits until the second or later. The team signed Rex Grossman to a one-year contract early Wednesday, and Grossman is expected to compete for the team's backup job.

Tebow won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and twice led the Gators to a
national title.

No question Tebow would be a great leader, much more vocal than JC has been. You can't coach that competitive hunger and work ethic. Okung @ #4 and Tebow @ 37? Thoughts?????

I think if the Redskins had him as a choice in the second round he would be a good pick. It would let the Redskins have their offensive tackle with the 4th pick and it would get people excited about a new quarterback. It's be like having the cake and being able to eat it too.

#37 is too high for Tebow IMO. However, as has been mentioned, Shanahan has evaluated all the top prospects for the past year. He's looked hard at the Gator offense. He could take a flyer on him in the 3rd as a developmental QB, if the Skins secured a 3rd round pick.

Some people apparently don't like Tebow, but I don't have a problem with this, as long as they don't draft him in round 1. If they go OT in round 1 and take a QB later in the draft, that's fine with me. Certainly no harm in kicking the tires on this guy.

Like I said, Tebow would be a great Redzone Wildcat QB, since Mr. Campbell has struggled inside the 20...But , they just discovered a new sub-glacial amphipod that lives deep under the Polar Icecap (or whats left of it...They got these alien hairy lobsters that walk around on the bottom)..Walsh found himself a dude named Jerry Rice from North West-East Louisiana State , and he turned out pretty good...

Yes, Ray, yes. Tackles with our first two picks and then maybe -- maybe -- something other than O line with our third pick. That would be delightful.

F drafting Tebow... does anybody up here really think he's better than a project at QB in the NF of L?

I like Tebow, even though I just want nothing but O-liners. But with the right coaches he could be hall of fame.

Nate, according to reports Tebow's new throwing motion,etc. was impressive today. However, even if it "sticks" he is most likely 2 or more years away from playing.

I think that drafting a QB is a ridiculous and stupid proposition. I would just not do it unless you had a sure thing.

Let's think about QB's that worked out well for the teams that drafted them: Peyton, Eli, Donovan, yes, these were as close to sure things as you can get. But for every Donovan McNabb, there is a Tim Couch. For every Peyton Manning, a Ryan Leaf.

I say, skip the QB's - early round OR late round (Tom Brady was a fluke) and get experienced QB's in free agency or trades (a la New Orleans and Brees). Why risk it? QB's are a crap shoot, at best.

Now, if you think Tebow, Clausen, or Bradford is a sure thing, a la Peyton Manning...., then draft him. But I don't see a sure thing in this draft class....

Can we get away from the idea of drafting a QB, and take some O line and D backs???!!! That is where the real value is!

============================================
Lisa_R I don't care what anyone says, at Tebow's age, you pick up a "new" throwing motion. His mechanics are not that of a pro style QB. I played QB in high school, I went to the camps and clinics and you'd always see guys like Tebow. Those were the guys that Pitched in baseball and were QBs in football. They'd use the same pitching or wind up motion. Coaches would try to get them out of it and they would for a couple of passes, but they'd be right back at their old motion again.

Its hard to retrain yourself to throw in a motion you're not comfortable at doing. The only guy I've seen with the same throwing motion to make the transition without changing the way he threw was Elway. Let's be honest here, Tebow doesn't have half the velocity as Elway did. Elway wound his arm, but he threw it with heat behind it.

At 37, you're wasting a pick, in my opinion. Look at Colt Brennan. 2 hip replacements, 0 passes, 0 TDs. I'll feel bad for Tebow if I have to watch him making tackles on the punt team. It'll just be sad to see.

although, he COULD provide some interesting competition with Grossman for the Point After Holding position.

I mean, maybe Shanny likes some of the kicking game gadgetry that Zorn left behind. Tebow as a holder could be interesting.

Tebow's not getting past Jacksonville @ #10. Jacksonville doesn't have a 2nd rd pick and Tebow won't be there in the 3rd.

This has nothing to do with his ability, it's either reach for Tebow or move the team to LA.

Shanny/Allen are doing their due diligence and meeting with the top 5-10 players at just about every position

Posted by: Diesel44 | March 18, 2010 12:32 AM | Report abuse

They need a running back more than a QB. They need more OLinemen more than a QB. But, it may make sense to bluff interest in Tebow in order to get someone who really wants him to trade up to get him. He'll be nothing but a Wildcat QB in the NFL and I don't see Shannahan running that offensive set.

RE: Tebow - this visit is a total smoke-screen move, only a couple of teams have reason to be genuinely interested in him anytime before the 3rd-4th round.

Shanny and Allen are too smart to get caught up in the hype around a particular player, we've definitley seen that in their approach to free-agency, so I don't see why the draft would be any different?

Posted by: PDXskin | March 18, 2010 12:46 AM | Report abuse

Based on past performance, Shanahan overtly checking out Tebow rules him out of the equation.

Shanahan completely ignored Cutler before he drafted him, no combine interview, no pro day attendance, no private team workout.

At 4 and 37, Redskins need to draft impact players who can and will start from Game 1. Tebow ain't that. I think he would be worth a flyer in the third, but Redskins don't have a third... which is another reason why they cant f' up at 4 and 37.

Posted by: SkinsfaninKaneohe | March 18, 2010 1:02 AM | Report abuse

I would draft this guy at #37 if he's there. This guy was a running quarterback in college. I'm not saying he'll be like a Vick type QB, but he would know how to scramble and avoid being sacked. Take a look at his college stats. He has a lot of potential.

LOL! He beat Colt Brennan and Chase Daniel for the 2007 Heisman Trophy as a sophomore but lost the 2008 Heisman to Sam Bradford BUT Tebow did beat Bradford's team for the BCS Championship.

I've been saying Tebow and Okung for weeks now, though I'm not sure if Tebow is a good thing there. Just have a feeling.

Tebow as a third round pick would be great. Worth the risk since he has potential. 2nd rounds picks shouldn't be used on developmental risks. But maybe he'll impress the coaches.

All I know is you can watch the SEC Championship game and see him play against an aggressive 3-4 defense with several players who are now headed toward the NFL. It wasn't pretty since they kept him hemmed into the pocket.

F Tebow.

Go with Okung at #4, best available OT at #37 and hope that Dan LeFevour is on the board when we pick in the 4th round. If not, next year's QB class is supposed to be way better than this year's. Get your franchise QB then.

The only way I'm even remotely OK with taking Tebow is if it's in the 4th round and LeFevour is off the board.

I agree leadership is important, but you have to have talent first. Tebow doesn't have it. If he's insistant on playing QB, then I wouldn't draft him before the 4th round. If Bradford is gone, then LT at #4 and RT at #37. I'd trade down out of #4 if they can and try to recoup the 3rd rounder they forfeited for Jarmon.

It amazes me how many people dislike Tebow because of his religeous beliefs. Bet these same folks have no problem bringing on the wife/girlfriend beaters, dog killers, serial unwed fathers, and other punks as long as they can play. It also amazes me how many folks think they are qualified talent evaluators, including the talking heads on ESPN. My guess is that these folks don't have a clue about QB mechanics but use that as a cover for wanting and hoping that Tebow fails. I'm a lifelong Skins fan but I might find it easier to root for a team that had Tebow on the roster than one that had Larry Johnson. I'd love for Tebow to be a Skin.

If the Redskins are smart they will take this guy if they can. All of these knocks on Tebow's throwing motion and whether he'll make a good NFL QB or not is nonsense. The guy is head and shoulders above Bradford, Clausen, McCoy -- all if them. The kid wins. Of the four Tebow is the only one who will not be a bust. Better take him if you can otherwise he'll simply come back to beat you.

Grich, I don't think it's that people dislike him for his religious beliefs, I think people don't like him because he feels the need to say something about it ALL the time. I grew up around the Christian church and both of my grandfathers are ordained ministers, so I'm very familiar with the Tebow and Kurt Warner types.

In my experience, people who feel the need to beat people over the head with things of a religious nature tend to fall into one of two categories: either they're trying to project a certain image of themselves for marketing reasons (see Sanders, Deion) or they have a strong obsession over it. Neither seems to be very healthy.

So I don't think there are many folks that fault him for being a Christian and being proud of it...he's getting heat because he can't seem to figure out the appropriate time and place for conveying that.

Well first of all the thought that they are even entertaining the idea of drafting Tebow is crazy...this guy has only shown he can play in Florida/Urban Meyer's offense. And if you take a QB in the later rounds I think i'd be more open to taking Tony Pike or Jarret Brown from WVa, Jevan Snead, Dan Lefevour...oh I hope they don't muck up this draft..

I am not a Tebow fan but I think he'd be a great mid-second round pick, just as long as we don't trade UP to get him as is our usual past habit. Sure there is some risk with Tebow but there is risk with all draft picks. The guy is healthy, very athletic and good character, all of which will go a long way to making him a good pro. Probably not a QB long term but could play FB, H-back or TE, and could augment the QB slot for running wildcat or other gadget formations.

That may be true, brownie. But I think grich should also realize that many people are opposed to TT, because even tho he was an elite college QB, his skills probably will not work at the professional level. What is intriguing about him is his leadership and desire. And those qualities are what you can't teach. And he might be successful, in spite of his lack of throwing skills.

I'd be OK taking him with a 3rd round pick if we traded for one, or even a second round pick if we got an extra one through a trade. But I don't see value for him at #37.

Opinions are like eyelashes -- everyone has a hundred of them. But unlike eyelashes, most of the opinions on this blog are pretty worthless.

I have no idea if Tebow will be a successful NFL player. But being generally recognized as the greatest college player of all time has to count for something.

Tebow is a leader of men. The value of that can't be determined in the mechanics of a throwing arm. Ask Dungy, Ditka, Parcells... or Shanahan. Great teams have great leaders. The Redskins aren't a great team, and they don't have a great leader. Yet.

So glad to hear they are considering this. It's a steal. Draft Okung at 4. THEN take your QB of 2011-2021 at 37. For 2010, lets improve the line, field a competitive team, and let Campbell play himself into a big contract or prove he can't.

The "system" argument only makes sense if you want a starter as a rookie. It's ridiculous to think that a big athlete who works as hard as Tebow couldn't learn the position while sitting for a year. Just ridiculous. Nothing but talking heads who need to fill 24 hour news cycles with opinions.

Remember how sure they were that Vince Young can't play QB in the NFL? How's that working out?

Bottom line - if the Skins don't, then New England will. That should tell us something.

As we have seen the last two years the game has changed - the wildcat. He would fit this bill perfectly. Maybe coming in on third downs and having the option to run or pass - what a weapon. In the NFL world of most players being specialist - first down specialist, third down specialist, snapper - center, and so on,what a perfect fit. He is a winner, loves the game, has faith, and wants to prove everyone wrong about him- going back to the Over the Hill Gang - they won because they wanted to prove the world wrong.

It's a silly distinction. Vick has always been as much a running back as a quarterback. In fact, before he went to jail he was as fast or faster than any back in the NFL. He's also built like a truck. If the Dolphins run the formation with Michael Vick instead of Ronnie Brown at the position, it's still a Wildcat except to the hairsplitting few.

"Remember how sure they were that Vince Young can't play QB in the NFL? How's that working out?"

Middling well. Vince is playing much, much better than the season before, when he really begged to be benched. But the Titans don't depend on him as a passer. He has far fewer QB responsibilities than, say, Jason Campbell. His aptitude for running really freed up the field for Chris Johnson, and that's why the offense began to click and why they began to win. In a normal NFL scheme, he'd struggle.

So my verdict would be: much improved, valuable player, not yet an NFL QB by conventional standards.

An interesting perspective on the "New coach, Veteran QB relationship" here in Washington. It seems as though I'm not the only one who doesn't believe Jason Campbell is the reason for a subpar offense.

The issue in Washington can be summed up in one word: vanilla. That seems to be the adjective of choice for anyone when discussing the state of the Redskins' passing game and, by proxy, the performance of Jason Campbell.

The odd part here is that Campbell's numbers don't back up the idea that he is the weight holding down this offense. His No. 15 ranking in overall YPA last season placed him in the upper half of the league in that metric and he was only eight-tenths of a yard away from equaling such names as Donovan McNabb, Eli Manning and Brett Favre. It is quite easy to imagine that Campbell could post similar or better totals in that category if he had the receiving corps that each of those three possesses.

Even without a significant upgrade in that area, Campbell's production could increase if Shanahan is willing to lean on his arm more often. Campbell threw a vertical pass only 20.5 percent of the time last season, a total that was the third-lowest in the league. It's not as if he was terrible in vertical YPA (his 10.6 mark ranked 17th out of 37 passers) and using this part of his game even slightly more often would add an aggressive mindset to an offense that could badly use that type of thinking.

The common thread among each of these personnel/coaching moves? It is simple: Change is good.
