If there is tension between Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and his backup last season, Brady Quinn, Tyler Hansen hasn't seen it.

The former Colorado signal caller works out several times a week with the two pros, whom he says have gone out their way to help him prepare for pro day at CU in early March and the NFL Draft in April.

Quinn and Tebow were in the news Tuesday when unflattering comments Quinn made about Tebow in an interview with GQ magazine came to light.

Hansen said he was surprised when he heard about the controversy because nothing he has seen from Tebow and Quinn has led him to believe they might be feuding.

All three quarterbacks throw together several times a week in Denver under the guidance of renowned trainer Loren Landow.

Hansen is hoping to be drafted, Quinn is hoping for a free agent contract and Tim Tebow is hoping to improve as a passer heading into his third season next fall.

"They're really friendly," Hansen said. "They have a professional relationship and they're really nice. Both those guys are great guys. I think every person they meet and talk to they're going to be standup guys. There is no turmoil between them. I think they have a great relationship. That's what it seems like to me."

Hansen first met Quinn last year through CU assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach Rip Scherer, who coached Quinn when they were together with the Cleveland Browns.

Hansen said he met Tebow through Quinn.

Hansen said both of his workout partners have already helped make him a better quarterback with tips they have provided and also from watching how they handle themselves and others in workouts.

"From Brady, I've actually sat and talked with him and I've learned some interesting stuff about how to take this next step, playing in the pros," Hansen said. "You know, 'What did you do? What helped you out?' Stuff like that. I've even talked to him about what should my routine be at pro day.

"With Tim it's been more some footwork stuff and drops and stuff like that. He really is truly a leader. Even when we were throwing with the receivers. He was getting with the receivers and showing them how to run a route and stuff like that. I think that's the biggest thing I've taken from him is just some leadership qualities and how to handle receivers and stuff like that."

Hansen played well last month in the East-West Shrine game, leading the West team to the winning score in the final 2 minutes.

He said he believes the performance might have improved his stock with some NFL franchises and he hopes to convince others in the league that he can play at that level when he works out for them in Boulder on March 8.

The National Football Post rates Hansen the 25th best quarterback in the 2012 draft heading into the combine and a slew of pro days on college campuses over the next six weeks.

Hansen's stock has actually fallen with that site since early January when he was ranked the 22nd best quarterback.

Hansen did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine, which begins today in Indianapolis. But he says he will watch it with interest, looking to compare performances from his peers with what he knows he can do.

Hansen said he began the process of preparing for the draft shortly after his senior season ended last fall with uncertainty about how he would stack up.

He said his experience in the shrine game and working out alongside Tebow and Quinn have given him a confidence boost.

"That's the biggest thing I can get from this is watching these guys throw and then watching how I throw," Hansen said. "I'm right there. I can make all those throws that Tim Tebow is making and Brady Quinn is making. I feel like I compare really well to those guys. That reassures me that I can play in that league and that I can be a second- or first-string quarterback in that league and do everything I need to do to have a career out of it."

Hansen said he won't do the bench press at CU's pro day but he will do every other drill for scouts. He said he is working to perfect his techniques and mental approach in the final weeks leading up to pro day.

"It's definitely getting to be crunch time right now," he said.

Former Buffs Evan Harrington, Rodney Stewart, Ethan Adkins, Travis Sandersfeld, Josh Hartigan and David Goldberg are all working out with Landow as well, but they are in a different group earlier in the day and don't work with the three quarterbacks.
