The only thing I didn't see was that he not only doesn't come away from his primary target but also doesn't seem to have much patience in the pocket to let a play develop. I don't think I saw him once wait an extra split second to see if a receiver could break free down field.

Granted they were blitzing him a lot and there were times he didn't have time to throw so all of the shorter passing plays made sense. However, there were times they managed to pick up the blitz and if he would have examined the field he may have been able to spot a blown assignment or an open receiver. Although, I could be wrong and they were all covered but it didn't look like he even gave it a chance. Still though in the 3rd or 4th quarter when you are losing by that much you got to take a shot deep even if your receiver isn't wide open.

I just think patience in the pocket, as well as the ability to examine the field is something you can't teach and I didn't see it in that highlight. Therefore I see Tannehill as a serviceable backup maybe a starter just not a future star.
I know this was an old comment, but thought it was kind of interesting - how often do you see a prospect who you don't think holds onto the ball long enough in the pocket? Who gets rid of it "too quickly," as it were?
