According to the Washington Post, former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow had a private workout with the Washington Redskins this past weekend in Gainesville.

Attending the workout for the Redskins were new head coach Mike Shanahan (a former UF offensive coordinator), general manager Bruce Allen and director of player personnel Scott Campbell.

Shanahan has said he wants to draft a young quarterback that he can groom for the future in Washington. He really likes Sam Bradford, but the former Oklahoma quarterback likely will be the first player taken in the draft. The Redskins have the fourth overall pick. Washington may be looking at Tebow as a possible second-round pick. Most of the draft analysts project Tebow to be a second- or third-round pick, although a team could pull a surprise and scoop him up in the first round.

Tebow is expected to have private workouts with at least four other teams over the next few weeks — Buffalo, Cleveland, New England and Seattle. According to the NFL, private workouts must take place at a prospect’s university or in his hometown.

Tebow’s draft stock seems to be on the rise after his performance at UF’s Pro Day last Wednesday. Tebow unveiled his new, tighter throwing motion and threw the ball well to former UF receivers David Nelson, Riley Cooper and Aaron Hernandez.

The NFL has invited Tebow to attend the draft in New York on April 22-24, but Tebow said last week he still hasn’t decided where he will be for the draft.

  1. Tebow will do any team proud and will give his all for what they need in a quarterback. He will make such a wonderful difference in the lives of those around him and that is just plain good news for wherever he goes.
    Love that Tebow.
    Love those Gators!!

  2. Washington, Buffalo, Cleveland, New England or Seattle would all be good teams for Tebow to go to for development. I just hope a team like Jacksonville does not grab him just to start him too early in order to sell tickets. Tebow should go in round 2 or 3 and sit behind a veteran to learn the trade. At the very least, he will make enough money as a 2nd stringer to fund his charity organization for years to come.

  3. if i were the redskins i would try to get 2 1st rounders with the fourth overall draft Tim Tebow(Mike Shannahan former assistant gators Coach Scenario)
    than trade Carlos Rogers for a 2nd. Draft Russell Okung in the 1st so Tim can have some protection. Trade Grossman for some mid-round picks. Draft a nasty linemen in Brandon Carter from Texas-Tech, my relative Jahvid Best he’s in my bloodline since were cousins no lie. replace Carlos with Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. J.D. Walton,Nate Allen and Jason Pierre-Paul he can play either 3-4 & 4-3 OLB including Rolando McClain he’s a surereal Starter

  4. I would like to see the redskins beef up there O-line some more
    Ian “THE U” Symonette 6-9,351. Morgan Rosborough 6-6,379 pound two-way player that can play some lefttackle and Guard he’s a mammoth monster in the booth. Devin Tyler from Temple 6-9,308, or draft Chris Scott from Tennessee who can play Multiple positions on the O-line. Chris Fisher from Lousiana Lafayette who held Ndamukong Suh from a sack. My sleeper wideot for the skins Pete Simond he’s 6-6 or Ali Villanueva a 6-11 freak who can play LT,TE, or the slot WR.

  5. You never seen anybody like Tebow,” the reason i like Tebow is he inspired by giving back to the community thats why i’m helping out with a local University like Campus Kitchen. This is a guy who improved on his mechanics, when was the lasttime you’ve seen anybody worked on there mechanics like Tebow who gets better and better. He would bring back a DYNASTY if the REDSKINS drafted him in the 1st or 2nd round.

  6. i got one last thing to say why would the Jaguars draft Tebow since they let their entire O-line talking smack about Tebow huh. Then you got Chad Henne talking about him. He’s a good person i know haven’t met him in person but it would be an honor take the Washington Redskins for example they don’t go around trash talking about somebody, when i was watching Drew Brees he’s the only guy in the league that knows how to fire up a team i never seen Jason Campbell firing up an offense like that in my entire life, but for that matter Tim Tebow can bring so much excitement to any offense but him and the Redskins are a match made in a heaven.
