The Oakland Tribune reports that NFL.com’s Gil Brandt suggested that the Raiders spent time with Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

The newspaper reported that Brandt relayed a story in a pre-draft conference call about it. Brandt did preface the tale by saying he wasn’t sure if it was true.

OK.

But then he went into detail about the meeting. This goes under the category of pre-draft hype. Every team is talking to every prospect. Oakland is on the hunt for quarterbacks, so I’m sure it’s looking into to Tebow. Should we put the Raiders on the list of teams that could take Tebow? Sure, why not.

It’s possible. Everything is possible.

I wouldn’t be totally stunned if Oakland used the No. 39 pick on Tebow. That’s the area where he will likely be drafted and the Raiders have a use for him. I could see it; whether he had a fabulous pre-draft meeting with the Raiders or not.
