Agent: Tebow still considering attending NFL draft next month

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow remains undecided about whether or not he will attend the NFL draft next month in New York, according to his agent, Jimmy Sexton, who said Tuesday that he was in contact with league officials.

Sexton said that with the draft now spread over three days -- the first round is scheduled for Thursday, April 22 in primetime -- "they're a lot more flexible" about what a player would have to do while in New York. Sexton said prospects attending the draft must be in New York by the Tuesday of draft week, but during the event itself, they would have a lot more freedom to leave the green room, return to their hotel and work with the league about how long the player would attend should he begin to slip out of the first round.

Tebow is a player on whom many teams have a third-round grade, but he could go as high as the back end of the first round. He is one of the true wild cards in the draft, and it would be surprising to see him slip out of the second round.
