Scouting Report
Tannehill suffered a broken fifth metatarsal during a passing drill following his senior season, but the draft stock of this converted wide receiver remains high. The former Aggie is one of the top-rated quarterbacks in this class despite making only 19 starts over his final two seasons. Tannehill led Texas A&M in receptions in 2008 and 2009 before moving under center and leading the team to six consecutive victories in 2010. Tannehill finished his senior season with 3,744 passing yards with 29 TDs and 15 INTs. Tannehill could make up for his lack of experience as a quarterback with his smarts - he plans on attending medical school to become an orthopedic surgeon - athleticism and leadership skills. His experience running an NFL offense should also help him make the transition to playing on Sundays. Tannehill has outstanding poise in the pocket and can get rid of the ball quickly and with plenty of velocity. His escapability also makes him a threat in the open field. Tannehill, a possible second-round pick, is still learning to read defenses, but he has shown the ability to go through his progressions and make smart decisions.
