Instead of answering the question, Kiper launched into a three-minute tirade about Tebow appearing at the Senior Bowl and how he has no chance of being a first-round pick in April’s draft.
Here is Kiper’s full answer:
“Well I’m on the record saying he made a mistake going to the Senior Bowl. I said that long before — I would have not gone to the Senior Bowl, and I would not throw at the Combine. I would wait until an individual workout.”
“After that Cincinnati Bearcat game, nobody would have seen me throw until the individual workout, where I’m throwing to (Aaron) Hernandez and (Riley) Cooper, in my environment and with my guys. That’s it.”
“At the Combine, you go there, you interview, you go through the medical, and if you want to run and go through the thing. But throwing? No, and I would have never set foot in Mobile, Ala. if I were Tim Tebow.”
