From the Times-Union Jacksonville:

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow said Friday he has submitted paperwork to the NFL’s draft advisory committee, asking it to evaluate his potential draft status.

Tebow, who spoke after the Gators landed in Fort Lauderdale to begin preparations for the Jan. 8 BCS National Championship Game against Oklahoma, is considering leaving after his junior season but wants to wait and see where the committee projects he will be drafted.

Several draft experts – notably Mel Kiper, Jr., and’s Todd McShay – have said Tebow is likely a third-round pick. They have questions about his ability to read defenses, his footwork, his delivery, and his ability to take snaps under center.

Tebow has thrown for 2,515 yards and 28 touchdowns

Heck Yeah!! So long Tebow!! Wonderful time to announce this too, nothing will boost your teams spirit like telling them you're leaving!
