    Polian says Tannehill has "unique talent, merits high pick, very, very high upside"

    Ex-Colts president Bill Polian calls Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill a "unique talent" who "merits a high pick" based upon "talent and a very, very high upside."

    "He has not played as much quarterback as have Griffin and Luck, but he is immensely talented and he is a winner and he is a high-character guy and a very exceptionally smart guy, so he's got all the characteristics," said Polian. "This is real ... His pick is kind of a pivotal pick, and the Browns are now the team to watch." Polian expects "a lot of action" at the third and fourth spots in the draft as QB-needy teams vie for Tannehill.

    There is alot of momentum behind Tannehill right now. Media outlets like to hype certain quarterbacks because it drives hits and traffic.

    But when the GM's look at the tape there are problems. It will be tough for Holmgren to pull the trigger on Tannehill, who is a risk, when he has sure fire talents Richardson and Blackmon to choose from. Personally, I think Holmgren takes Richardson and Fisher/Snead take Blackmon at 6, with Claiborne sandwiched in at 5. Holmgren gets Richardson this year, waits on Barkley next year and then he's got something.

    So Tannehill falls to Jax at 7. Does Jax want Floyd? If so, Tannehill falls to Miami. I'm not sure KC, Sea, Dallas or Philly make the big move to 7 to pick him.

    Suck on that Ireland haters crying for polian, tannehill haters too.
    We move Marshall for all the right reasons, miss out on ole' manning.. then when they dont overpay a backup qb : it's the last straw and jokers are protesting outside the stadium ! All brainwashed by the media. There's no pressure from within the walls of the office, it's all from the uneducated fanbase, and that's why a movement was made to inform the fans of what's going on, because all they had to go off of was the media.

    Someone takes him ahead of us, fine. We should not trade up for him. If he falls to us we will decide whether to take him. Just be ready for us to pass on him, the same way we passed on Quinn.

    Its just the same situation where everyone trusts Philbin on Flynn until we actually pass on him. Then Ireland is an idiot. Now everyone trusts Sherman's opinion of Tannehill, but what if we pass? Is Ireland an even bigger idiot? Media hype and actual NFL front offices are two completely different things and we might be surprised where Tannehill actually ends up being drafted...

    Tannehill might get drafted in round two. Stranger things have happened.
