As expected, reviews mixed after Tebow's workout

Posted on: March 17, 2010 2:08 pm
As I mentioned in an earlier post , Tim Tebow wasn't going to convert his doubters or scare off his supporters with how he threw today. Scouts trust their eyes on game film too much to change their opinion based on a workout -- especially one against no competition and in drizzly conditions.

According to those in attendance, Tebow's throwing motion was tighter. He held the ball higher while moving about in the "pocket" and had a higher release point, as well. Tebow has never thrown the prettiest ball. He is prone to wobbly passes, but his passes were tighter spirals today than they've often been in the past.

Tebow was accurate to all levels of the field. He was at his best throwing deep balls , a characteristic I noted during Tebow's best day of practice at the Senior Bowl.

Tebow was obviously focusing a great deal of attention on his delivery and didn't yet appear natural in his motion.

It will be interesting to see if Tebow reverts back to his prior elongated throwing motion when he has a pass rush chasing him.
