Ryan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill is regarded by many as the 3rd best QB in this years upcoming draft. That may not always be a bad thing when you have a once in a decade sure fire QB in Luck and the track star QB who throws a very accurate ball and won the heisman in RG3.

The Dolphins make the most sense for Tannehill as their offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was Tannehill's head coach. Tannehill was previously a WR and Sherman thought so highly of him that he moved him to QB where he succeeded and beat out all the other QBs. Tannehill possesses great mobility and pocket presence and is considered an accurate QB. He fits perfectly into the new Sherman/Philbin west coast offense and could be the future of the Dolphins. It will also give Tannehill the perfect opportunity to become a leader as he will be familiar with the offense and could teach other players it as well as gives Philbin a chance to draft his own players and use the mindset that the Packers have in which you build through the draft (notice how small of a splash the Packers have made this season). This pick makes too much sense and could be the reason why the Dolphins passed on Flynn and where not serious players in the RG3 sweepstakes.

Greg Cosell, who spent numerous hours studying film, thinks so highly of Tannehill that he believes the QB is a superior prospect when compared to Christian Ponder who was drafted last year and #12. Now the one problem would be if he can get past the Browns to number 8.
