A popular pick in NFL mock drafts recently has been Tim Tebow to the Minnesota Vikings with the 30th pick. More and more analysts are coming out and saying Tebow will be a first round pick and the Vikings have Brett Favre for what will likely be one more season so the marriage makes sense on some levels.
However, according to the Pioneer Press, there's "virtually no chance" the Vikings select Tebow in the first round.
Some signs recently have pointed to the Vikings being interested in Tebow.
Head coach Brad Childress chose to work out Tebow and other Gators in early April instead of attending Jimmy Clausen's workout. In addition to Childress, Vikings VP of player personnel Rick Spielman also attended the workout, which is a good sign that the Vikings wanted to learn more about the main attraction, which was Tebow.
Misinformation is flowing at this time of year so we're not sure where to go with this one. If Walters' information is coming from a team source, the possibility of it being a smoke screen has to be considered. Tebow is arguably the biggest unknown heading into the draft and teams aren't likely to tip their hand.
