ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski is currently in Cortland, NY checking out the New York Jets’ training camp and of course keeping a close eye on quarterback Tim Tebow.
Jaws noticed that Tebow’s throwing motion has improved.
“The one thing I’ve noticed about Tim Tebow — and it’s a small sampling thus far — is his stroke is much better,” said Jaworski, per ProFootballTalk.com. “It’s cleaner. It’s not as elongated. He’s not dropping the football. That means the ball will come out quicker.”
Of course Jaworski sees areas where Tebow needs to improve.
“I’d still like to see Tebow drive off his back leg a little more,” Jaworski added. “And sometimes, he has that dead leg and he loses energy at the end of the throw, on the deeper throws. It’s fine in the short to intermediate area. But downfield, those throws, when they hang in the air, will get knocked down or batted down by the very athletic secondary players in this league.”
