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.
