Via Tony Pauline, Tannehill won't play in Senior Bowl.

Sustained in practices preparing for NFL Draft.

Does this push him out of the first round? My guess is no. If Ponder can go 12th with a glass shoulder then Tannehill definitely can!

Bad news for Tannehill, not having the Senior Bowl to potentially impress a QB needy team like the Redskins could end up hurting his stock down the line. Toon will end up being a 4th/5th round pick.

Wow....this could really hurt Tannehill's stock.

Wow....this could really hurt Tannehill's stock.

I would say it's more likely to hurt Toon's stock

I don't know if this necessarily hurts Tannehill's stock as much as it takes away an opportunity for him to improve it dramatically. Either way it's a big loss for the Senior Bowl though as I thought Tannehill had a chance to be one of the stars of the week.

People seemed to assume that Tannehill could work his way into the mid-first round....if he can't play in the Senior Bowl or take part in combine drills, it's hard to see that happening.

he's still very likely to be the 3rd QB taken, which I would say gets him in the first round somewhere

Hopefully they are both ready for the combine.

i think this opens the door even more for tyler wilson to declare.

Ouch, that sucks for Tannehill. I was really looking forward to watching him in the Senior Bowl. Boo.

Am I the only one who thinks Tannehill's foot ISN'T hurt??

The Skins coaching staff will be coaching at the Senior Bowl and everyone knows Washington will be looking to take a QB with its first pick.

If RGIII and Luck are gone before pick 6, it's a good bet that the Skins consider Tannehill.

Now if he goes to the Senior Bowl and doesn't show well in front of his future employers, Tannehill could fall from a potential top 10 pick to the bottom of the first round.

Maybe I'm cynical, but this sounds like a ploy to me.

Yeah, that's a god way of putting it. Tannehill had a chance to do what Ponder did last year with a good week of practices. I do think it could drive his value down a bit if the rest of the pack rises throughout the process and he isn't able to get healthy, but he's pretty clearly penciled in as the 3rd quarterback assuming no one else declares.

Toon is overrated anyway. Now teams won't be overdrafting him.

Tannehill is Shanahan's type of QB. Aside from Russell Wilson, his play action bootleg has to be the best in this draft, and we all know how much Shanahan loves that.
Is he scared of being exposed, or really injured? Either way, I would rule out Tannehill at #6.

Yeah, because top picks never fake injuries to skip the combine or allstar games when they're a top ranked pick.

Did Peyton play in the Senior Bowl??
Aikman??
Top players have and do skip the Senior Bowl.
'...incredibly stupid.'lol

Tony Pauline initially reported it was a 'serious injury'. Now he's tweeting it was 'fluke' injury during passing drills and Tannehill is being held out of the Senior Bowl as a 'precaution.'

So Tannehill is not being held out by his handlers/representatives because he physically can't play.

Remember the game is on January 28th, practices start on the 23rd. That's almost two weeks from today and Tannehill knows beyond a shadow of a doubt he won't be fit enough to play in the Senior Bowl, or at least his handlers think he would be better served at this early date to decline an invite??

Whatever. I'll stay stupid.

The story sounds sketchy all the way around.

Footwork is extremely important when throwing the football.

For what it is worth, Toon is still expected to participate. He will play in the game for sure (if nothing more happens)...I would assume practice is still in the picture.

First off you dont get to this level by being scared of being exposed and second he isnt an elite player that might find an advantage to not jeopardizing his draft status, just the opposite.

Huh? I agree with you 100%. I'm raising questions, not answering them.

Tannehill knows he's the 3rd best QB and that no one else is going to declare so why bother risking his stock. This happens every year.

He knows he's a legitimate 1st rounder as long as the QB need is as high as it is.

No Senior Bowl was no problem, no combine and private workouts will really hurt his stock in being a top 15 pick, maybe slides to round 2.

Hopefully a team gets needy and take him anyways. Always good for some draft surprises.

I would agree; it may not necessarily help his draft stock, but I don't think it hurts his stock at all either.

If anything, I think it cements him from dropping out of the 1st because of teams seeing any practical weaknesses in his game. I think a great senior bowl week with him establishing himself as the best QB there could propel him near the #10-13 range, but he can't play himself out of the mid-late 1st now.

On a side note: Did Tyler Wilson from Ark declare or is he going back to school? I can only see him challenging Tannehill for the 3rd QB spot, but I think it would be best for his development to go back to Arkansas and vie for the #2 QB spot, and a top 5-7 overall draft slot.

I doubt he slides to round two, we've seen this before where a guy can't workout and it doesn't effect his draft stock at all. Plus you have a lot of Quarterback hungry teams in the top 20......Cleveland, Washington, Miami, Kansas City, Seattle, Arizona?

Prediction: One of the Patriots 1st rounders will be traded to a team trading up for Ryan Tannehill.

position players and athletic freaks yes....but QB's ? - not being able to see his footwork and throwing the tree routes will have teams pause

I predict he goes top 12, even if he is still in a cast on draft day. This is an elite prospect, and he can still interview.

Tannehill is not an elite prospect, he has talent but is extremely raw at this point and will need a lot of development to reach his potential. While he has a high ceiling, there is no way to tell at this point whether or not he will ever get there.

His injury will hurt him a lot IMO, because he has lost an opportunity to show off his potential after receiving pro coaching at the Senior Bowl.

IMO, he is a borderline 1st rounder who some really desperate team might take a shot on late in round 1, but I won't be shocked if he lasts till round 2.
I don't think he is ready to start in year 1 and will need a lot of training to adjust to the next level.

Sounds a lot like the description of Jake Locker last year who went number 8 overall. Despite all our projections on where we think QBs should get picked last year's draft really illustrated that if a team needs a QB they will trade up or spend a high first rounder no matter what. Last year's QB class was heavily criticized and four QBs ended up going in the Top 12.

I'd rank Tannehill behind Locker but ahead of Ponder and Gabbert from the 2011 class. Last year the Redskins did supposedly have their sights set on Locker and Tannehill is a fairly similar prospect (raw, athletic, strong arm, good character) so I would not be shocked if the Redskins ended up getting him 6th overall.

Tannehill had a lot less starts than Locker, isnt as athletic and doesnt have quite the arm. I do see your point though about teams getting infatuated with overdrafting QBs, thus i half agree with what you're saying.

Agree for the most part. It will be interesting to see how Tannehill compares to Locker athletically. He did play WR for A&M for 2.5 years and was very good - I hope he is ready in time for the combine to do the drills.

I think Tannehill is further along as a passer than Locker was last year though and his time under Sherman did pay off. If Locker had more than one year with Sark he would have been further along in his passing coming out.

Locker is the tits though...love him. Tannehill was my guy this year, he played pretty well but I was a little disappointed - his play could of been a little better and consistent.
