QB | Tim Tebow | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft Information
Adam Schefter, of ESPN, reports Florida QB Tim Tebow has been working on the way he holds a football, shifting it from his waist to his shoulder.

Tebow will not unveil his new delivery at the NFL Scouting Combine, preferring instead to wait for his Pro Day March 17. "I'm not changing who I am or how I approach football," Tebow said. "But there are things that I can get a lot better at. I've never been asked to shorten or quicken my release and not have a loop in it.
