Tebow to visit the Redskins next week

From the Redskins Insider:

The Redskins saw Tim Tebow at the Senior Bowl. They saw him at the NFL Scouting Combine. They saw him during a private workout 1 1/2 weeks ago in Gainesville, Fla. And they'll see him again next week.

Tebow is scheduled to visit with the team next week in Ashburn, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It's probably not worth reading too much into this. Each team is allowed to bring in 30 draft prospects for a visit. Sometimes teams select guys in the draft that they didn't even bother bringing in. With all signs pointing toward the Redskins taking a quarterback with one of their top two picks, it only makes sense that they do their due diligence with each quarterback.

There's so much subterfuge and misdirection associated with the draft that often teams simply want the rest of the league to think they're high on a particular player. For example, when Shanahan openly praised Tebow during the owners meetings last week, the first thought many had was: Guess he's not going after Tebow.

By all accounts, Tebow is wowing teams in his personal meetings and many analysts -- including Sports Illustrated's Peter King -- think he's clawed his way into the first round.
