    Great post slim, heres one thing that stands out to me about your post "
    He gets a significant amout of passes batted down at the LOS because of it."
    , i keep saying tannehill reminds me of chad henne and its starting to become more clearer with assessments like you just gave. Im with you, i think miami should take a claiborne/richardson/blackmon in the first and take there chances with weedin in the 2nd.

If Miami takes him at #8, I'll be fine with it becauuse I trust that Sherman knows what we are getting more than anyone else.

    Also, I think its strange that Tannehill's value has gone up because he's played less. People equate less playing time to more room for improvement and a higher ceiling. It seems backwards to me. We all know what happens to QB's who declare for the draft their junior year - they have a much higher rate of failure than QB's who stay in college for their senior year. Although Tannehill played his senior year, he's had about as much playing time as most junior QB's.
    I agree. Much like Flynn whether they take him or not, they will do it with more knowledge than anyone else

    Look at the players talent, forget about what is on the sidelines. That is a great way to makes biased picks. Look at flynn and philbin situation, everyone thought flynn would pick miami to join his old coach, its a business, it means nothing.

    Having a coach with a connectin to a prospect is a great way to NOT make bias picks. It allows you to choose based on direct knowlege and evidence of a specific player, rather than bias.

    Yesterday you said Tannehill reminded you of Moore. Which one is it? It's clear you've never seen him play and are just making uneducated comparisons

    I said he was no better than moore, never compared him to moore. Chad henne is the better comparison. Bad decision making, scared to get rid of the ball alot, looks more like a running back than a qb, innaccurate throws, interceptions gallore. Dont get madd at me, im just pointing out what i saw on game tape.

    Also, Michael Floyd reminds him of Steve Smith (Carolina).

    No we do not. Wasn't Carson Palmer the #1 overall pick for the Bengals? Did he not sit for a year? Wasn't Philip Rivers the #5 overall pick? Did he not sit for a year? Wasn't Eli Manning the #1 overall pick? Did he not sit for half a season?

    Coach Philbin isn't obligated to start him day one and he knows first hand the value of sitting a QB and coaching him up since he did it with Rodgers and Flynn. Neither of which are the same QBs today that they were the day they were drafted or started a game.
