The season of false information and deception

Don't you just love this part of the offseason? Everyone has a mock draft out and speculation is running wild. Along with all this comes false information and a lot of smoke screens, causing teams to release any false information just to get a leg up in the game. Take for example what just happened with the whole thing about Ross wanting the Dolphins to draft Tannehill from PFT. It was originally reported on PFT but was then later denied by Armando, but then confirmed by Peter King and then denied by the owner himself Stephen Ross. No one knows for sure which is true besides the Dolphins themselves.


Now the Jaguar's director of player personnel Terry McDonough said that “people know Miami’s going to take [Tannehill], if a team wants a quarterback they're going to have to come in front of Miami." 


If you are a Tannehill, as strange as this is going to sound, this is actually a good thing for the Dolphins. The reason being that this shows that the Jaguars have not received any legitimate calls about trading up to the #7 spot because if they would have they wouldn't have said anything. They are trying to sell the 7th spot and so far there are no buyers. 


It's the draft season and usually most the information out there is not reliable and are mainly smoke screens for teams to gain the mental advantage.  Just make sure to take everything as a grain of salt and not look too much into it.
