Rookie QB Tebow looks good in first practice with Broncos


New Broncos QB Tim Tebow threw for the first time today in Broncos mini/rookie camp, and reports from The Sporting News say that the QB looked very good:

Tim Tebow is accustomed to living under the media microscope. Now, his every move on the football field is being scrutinized by the Broncos.

As the team’s three-day minicamp for rookies got under way, Tebow ran agility drills and then threw several passes under the watchful eyes of coach Josh McDaniels and his younger brother, Ben McDaniels, who is Denver’s new quarterbacks coach.

Both had plenty of advice for Tebow. “It was just everything from the plays to footwork to getting my body in position to throw and just different things like that,” Tebow said. “All football, all the time, and I love it.”

Deploying his new, improved throwing motion that removes the looping windup he had at Florida, Tebow’s throws were tight and compact. Now, he has to adjust to taking snaps under center and dropping back while dodging the pass rush after operating almost exclusively out of the shotgun in college.

Tebow wouldn’t pinpoint a priority. “Just improving, getting better on everything. I mean, the footwork, the drops, the cadences, identifying the right (reads), going through the protections. … I can’t just narrow it down. I got too many things I’m working on right now.”
