Kirwan also has Pats taking Tebow

By Mike Reiss

Count NFL.com analyst Pat Kirwan among those who believes the Patriots have legitimate interest in drafting Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

In his latest mock draft, Kirwan gives his selections for the first and second rounds. His picks for the Patriots:

22. DL Jared Odrick (Penn State)
44. TE Aaron Hernandez (Florida)
47. DE/OLB Thaddeus Gibson (Ohio State)
53. QB Tim Tebow (Florida)

Kirwan had previously detailed the teams he feels have the most interest in Tebow, and he explained why he had the Patriots topping the list.

"The creative mind of Belichick could find plenty for him to do for the next few years," Kirwan wrote.
