This is sure to spark some interest amongst Seattle Seahawks fans.

According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, the Seattle Seahawks have an individual workout scheduled with college football legend St. Timmy Tebow.

This is in no way indicating they are going to draft him, but teams are limited in the amount of individual sessions they are allowed with potential draft prospects. This shows they have more then just a fleeting interest in the former two-time BCS Champion.

Tebow has been heavily scrutinized in the offseason for his low, loopy delivery when he throws the ball, something he has been working on with a range of quarterback gurus including John Gruden, Noel Mazzone, and Marc Trestman.

If he shows a fair amount of improvement, his draft stock will likely rise into the second round, or potentially the late first round for a team like the Minnesota Vikings.

Just how the Seahawks plan on obtaining Tebow, though, remains to be seen. He is not worth either the No. 6 or No. 14 pick that the Seahawks possess in the first round, and if the trade for Broncos star Brandon Marshall goes down, they are likely going to be without their second-round pick.

As of now, the only way we even have the option to draft him is if:

We don't trade any of our current draft picks,

We receive draft picks in the Marshall trade,

We trade Seneca Wallace to the Cleveland Browns, as is a rumored possibility.

Tebow is viewed as a project player and he is a good match for Seattle, where he can sit behind veteran Matt Hasselbeck for at least next season.

Also, according to Brandt, Trestman is versing him in the West Coast offense, something the Seahawks also run.
