We all know that Tannehill has not had that many starts as a QB in College. He started for a season and a half.
But why the half? Did he beat out Jarrod Johnson mid way though through the season? No, he only started because Jarrod Johnson was injured. Tannehill was still playing WR, he had 11 catches.
So Tannehill only won the starting job his senior year when he beat out freshman Jameill Showers.
