Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is wrapping up a two-day visit with the New England Patriots, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter also reports that Tebow will visit Washington and Cleveland.

And so it begins.

Tebow's expected to go somewhere in the first two rounds of April's NFL Draft. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner checked in at just under 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds at the combine, ran a 4.72 40-yard dash (officially), and posted a vertical leap of 38.5 inches.

How he'd fit in New England is an open question, particularly with Tom Brady coming in to a contract year. The Patriots would probably have to have a comfort level that he could contribute somewhere other than quarterback to invest a high pick in him, but Bill Belichick has shown his affection for his old buddy Urban Meyer's star player.

"My sense of Tim Tebow is that if you asked him to play nose, he'd play nose," said Belichick last week. "I think he's the kind of kid, where whatever you ask him to do he'll do. I don't know what a team will do with him, but I think he's a real interesting player. He's had a great career, obviously it speaks for itself. He had tremendous production. They hardly ever lose. He's a good kid. There is a lot to like about him."
