Tebow looks shaky at QB, works with punt team

If you thought the Tim Tebow coverage was going to be out of control when he arrived in New York, you were right.

From Pro Football Talk:
Jets beat writers were offering up live Twitter updates of Tebows interceptions during 7-on-7 drills, but those interceptions led to the general consensus that Tebow is having some growing pains in learning the Jets offense, and that he didnt look as good passing the ball as Mark Sanchez."Its definitely frustrating," Tebow said of throwing two interceptions. "But its 7-on-7. Those plays . . . were the first time I ran them. So Ill learn from it. Honestly, it wont bother me again. When you make the bad play, you got to put it behind you and move on. I felt like I did."

Tebow also worked with the punt unit, serving as a punt protector. The New York media in attendance were sure to note how comfortable he looked at his new spot even though he's never played special teams in the past.

Ohio State LB on Belichick: 'When you first meet him, you're scared'

Ohio State LB on Belichick: 'When you first meet him, you're scared'

Even for some of the nation's top athletes, confident 20-somethings with the rest of their (perhaps very lucrative) lives ahead of them, there's a feeling you just can't shake when Bill Belichick walks into the room. 

"When you first meet him, you're scared," said Ohio State linebacker Raekwon McMillan, per WBZ. "He's quizzing you. It's like a little test. But after you get done with the test, the quiz or whatever, drawing up the defense, it's pretty cool. They're real down to earth people. Really cool."

Belichick was spotted at Ohio State's pro day getting a closer look at McMillan and his teammates on Thursday. He then headed off to Ann Arbor, Michigan for the Wolverines showcase Friday.

During various scouting trips across the country, the Patriots appear to be showing significant interest in the incoming class of linebackers. Belichick spent some extra time with Vanderbilt's Zach Cunningham -- who's projected to be a first-rounder -- at his pro day. The team reportedly scheduled a meeting with a speedy linebacker from Cincinnati. And Matt Patricia caught up with Notre Dame linebacker James Onwualu once his workouts finished up on Thursday. 

As for McMillan, the 6-2, 240-pounder was a second-team All-American and a first-team All-Big Ten choice. He's instinctive, but there's some question as to whether or not he has the strength to hold up inside at the next level.
