and the ESPN love affair continues.....

On the heels of an impressive workout at Florida's pro day, league sources say that Tim Tebow is among those players who have been invited to New York for the NFL draft April 22-24.

Tebow, who unveiled his new throwing motion for scouts, coaches and general managers in his workout, has accepted the invitation from the league, according to an official. Two NFL personnel men told ESPN that Tebow's workout on Wednesday boded well for the Gators quarterback, especially with those teams that were considering him as a high draft prospect.

The league did not release the entire list of players invited, though it is expected to include at least four quarterbacks -- Tebow, Oklahoma's Sam Bradford, Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen and Texas' Colt McCoy.

The league traditionally invites players who are projected to go in the first round. A league official said that even though Tebow could be a first-round selection, the new three-day draft format also motivated the NFL to double its invitation list from nine players in 2009 to 18 at next month's draft.

The new draft format will conduct the first round only on April 22, a Thursday night, and the second round only on the next night. The final four rounds will be conducted on Saturday.

Tebow threw dozens of passes to former teammates Riley Cooper, Aaron Hernandez and David Nelson during a 30-minute workout.

Carolina Panthers coach John Fox, Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Raheem Morris were in attendance. So were Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Gene Smith and Browns president Mike Holmgren.

About 3,000 fans showed up despite light rain. They cheered loudly as Tebow walked onto Florida Field for the first time since his home finale in November and applauded every completion.

I hope the new draft format doesn't ruin the fun of watching this asshole sweat every time a team passes on him.

Entirely possible, which is why he'd be stupid to accept this invite.

Even his biggest supporters would agree that the BEST case scenario for Tebow is to be taken in the late 1st. And it's just as likely he's not taken until the 3rd.

Everyone around him is probably telling him that he's going in the 1st round. If everyone thought the whole Brady Quinn experience was bad....just wait until Jesus doesn't get taken in the 1st round.

It was funny when Brady Quinn fell, ESPN asked him to move off camera into the back room somewhere with his girlfriend.

sadly they are only showing Round 1 the first day so Tebow will only have to sweat it for 1 round.

It actually got kind of pathetic when Aaron Rogers was there and they kept showing the camera on him. I felt allmost bad for the kid. I think the Packers took him out of sympothy & Chris Berman.

That would mean that he's given up on Russell.....and we know that isn't happening.

Plus I'm pretty sure that the Devil wouldn't draft Jesus.

Just because Russel can't hit water falling out of a boat, doesn't mean da faiders will take a QB. Al the walking dead Davis loves the kid.

just going by memory it's something like this:

thursday night (prime time) - round 1
friday - round 2 and 3
Saturday - round 4 - 7

I'm sure it's a misprint. The article says round one on Thursday, round two on Friday, and the final four rounds (4,5,6 & 7) on Saturday. We don't know when round three will happen ?

I'm not even a Tebow supporter, but the Jags would be nuts to pass on him at 10.

They'd be stupid to take him that high. Much better to trade down and get him at 30-32 or early 2nd.

I guess the NFL knows something about the Raiders that we dont.

Tebow = Anakin Skywalker

The Jags aren't taking him in the first round and they would be completely foolish to waste the #10 pick on a guy that they could probably get in the 3rd round with their next pick.

I wouldn't accept it if I were him. The would be humiliating for him to sit thru the entire 1stn round without being selected.
