Generally the NFL invites less than a dozen prospects to the actual NFL Draft held in New York City. And generally those prospects are among the elite expected to be picked in the top half of the draft.
With the change in the draft schedule this year -- first round on Thursday and rounds two and three on Friday -- the NFL has doubled its usual invitation list.
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.
