    I dont really agree with it either but Sherman should know his real potential. But its not like Tannehill is just some crappy QB prospect, he definitely can be as good as Matt Ryan I believe and for what its worth Charles Casserly on NFL network said he's better than all the QB's prospects in last years draft (minus Cam Newton) and that he compares him to Joe Flacco and Josh Freeman type prospect and if they all three were in the same draft together, he would choose Tannehill over Flacco and Freeman.

    Never know if we dont try. as we know, franchise QB's dont always fall into our laps. you gotta have a plan, not hope that we can get a better QB prospect next draft. thats kinda like throwing in the towel and its a dumb philosophy. We havent drafted a QB in the 1st round since 83 so i think its worth a shot, even if its a reach. If tannehill is available when we pick at #8 he's probably the best QB prospect that we were able to get in recent years, mostly because he's already familiar with Shermans system and that gives him and the fins a slight advantage

    I'd agree if we didn't just lose Marshall...there is a chance TRich and Blackmon fall as well. I mean would you not rather have them?

    Who knows..now they say we may sign Tebow..so god knows what is going on anymore.

    I like Wilson, because I figure Ireland could get canned this year and we could have a real GM drafting our QB next year..lol.

    anyway , you could title this thread "dont reach..draft ____ in round 3 or later" and I'd be fine with it.

    Look, if you're fishing for praise for Wilson fine, he's a great college qb. But you can't justify him as a viable draft option, maybe as a late flier or UDFA. I'm not saying Tannehill is the answer either. IMHO there are only 2 qb worth drafting earlier than the 3rd rd, we won't get a sniff of either one.

    And if you don't like the Flutie comparison here's a modern one; he has the same game as Darron Thomas, only less physical tools. So if you're throwing a late pick at a guy how about one with solid measureables?

    If Wilson was 6'4" people on here would be spilling their load over him.

    Because he isn't he's a much higher risk, but I think he is absolutely worth a 4th or 5th rounder.

    Wilson had no problem getting the ball over the Badger OL & they are mammoth even by NFL standards.

    Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins are my two favorite QBs this year (beyond the first two off the board, of course). I'd be very happy seeing the Dolphins use a 3rd-rounder on either.
