Last week ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the NFL had extended an invitation to Tim Tebow to attend the NFL Draft in New York City. And according to Mortensen, Tebow accepted.
Not so fast, says SI's Peter King, who talked to Tebow over the weekend.
"I've got to figure out what will be more fun for me and best for my family,'' he said. "But I have to say I liked what [Cleveland tackle] Joe Thomas did on the day of the draft a couple of years ago -- he went fishing with his dad.''
King said Tebow "doesn't sound like" he'll be attending the draft and for good reason.
If he gets picked low in the first round, the cameras of ESPN and NFL Network will be on him all night. And if he goes undrafted through the first round, all day Friday -- rounds two and three are scheduled for Friday the 23rd -- will be Tim Tebow Watch.
For some reason I think the 2010 NFL Draft is going to Tebow Watch no matter what.
