Patriots Interest In Tebow Just A Smokescreen?

The Patriots are one of five teams that will reportedly host a private workout with QB Tim Tebow. SB Nation's Pats community, Pats Pulpit, wonders if this is a smokescreen ala Pat White in 2009.

We're doing the same thing again. If we show that we're "interested" in Tebow, and Tebow is invited to the draft, that means that we'll probably "use" a 2nd round pick on him. That means that whoever wants him will have to use an early 2nd round pick to grab him- a high risk move by that team, but a "necessary" one if they wish to grab the player they want. This not only potentially weakens an opposing team, but leaves an additional player on the board that the Patriots may be interested in.

At this time of year, nearly every team is throwing out some sort of smokescreen whether it's intentional or not.
