ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Tim Tebow is making his NFL debut at the Denver Broncos’ minicamp for rookies.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner from Florida and surprising first-round draft pick dons an orange No. 15 jersey and is participating in workouts on a chilly Friday morning with six other draft choices, 19 college free agents and two wide receivers trying out with the team.

During the 25-minute period in which reporters, photographers and cameramen are allowed to observe, Tebow ran agility drills and then threw several passes under the watchful eyes of coach Josh McDaniels and his younger brother, Ben, who is Denver’s new quarterbacks coach.

Deploying his new and improved throwing motion that removes the looping windup he had in college, Tebow’s throws were tight and compact.
