Former Florida cornerback Joe Haden and former Union County star running back C.J. Spiller are among the latest players to accept an invitation from the NFL to attend the draft next Thursday and Friday in New York. Gator legend Tim Tebow has an invite, but has yet to make a decision.
Rotoworld.com, a site that specializes in fantasy sports news, reported Monday afternoon that Tebow has decided not to be in New York for the draft, but we could not confirm that with Tebow’s agent or anyone in the Tebow family Tuesday afternoon.
Tebow indicated several weeks ago that he might decide to play it low-key for the draft, possibly going fishing with his father like Wisconsin offensive lineman Joe Thomas did a few years ago. But at this point, there is nothing official from the Tebow camp.
Two other prominent quarterbacks still haven’t accepted an invitation from the NFL, either — Texas’ Colt McCoy and Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen.
