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.
