QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M
Analysis: This was the consensus pick for Jeff Ireland, Joe Philbin and Stephen Ross. Tannehill was the highest quarterback ever taken from Texas A&M. He is also only the third quarterback the Miami Dolphins have EVER taken in the first round. The other two – Dan Marino and Bob Griese – leave a huge legacy behind.
While Tannehill isn’t the most experienced quarterback, he has shown the ability to command his offense. Running a similar offense in college, Tannehill will make an easy transition in terms of verbiage and learning the playbook.
Tannehill, a former starting receiver for Texas A&M, brings a superb athletic ability to Miami. Along with great athleticism, Tannehill has shown an ability to make accurate outside throws and anticipate routes before his receivers complete their route.
Miami needed a quarterback, and they got their guy. Great pick.
