Quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh, has talked recently about all the upside that Tim Tebow has shown. People are making note of this, as Tebow has only taken reps at quarterback so far.

“I think he can be very good,” Cavanaugh told the Daily News. “I was pleasantly surprised when I saw him over an extended period of time . . . not just watching him play on film. I think he’s certainly got the arm strength. He has good mechanics. They’re getting better every day.”

They have begun working on adjustments when the play breaks down, but the main focus has been fundamentals inside the pocket, when it doesn’t break down.

“I think with Tim, he’s more focused right now in the offseason on just working on the fundamentals of trying to be rhythmic in the pocket,” Cavanaugh said. “So (he) can be using the mechanics that (he) wants to be using. We started to toy a little bit with some of the other things that will happen to you . . . And he’s shown great progress. I’m real pleased with him.”
