The two are nothing alike at all.
ETA; Tannehill has more than a 1/4 of the yards Russell compiled in three years.
How many franchise QBs did he.try and draft but failed

What cracks me up is even his basis of comparison isnt true. Russell was a first round pick before the combine ever happened. He was coming off a very good year in college and a national championship. His talent was obvious. Its not like he came out of nowhere after the combine.
Again, I THINK he'll be a good one but you guys are talking like it's a guarantee and it's not.
Shut Up Billick!!! You've been chewing on sour grapes,ever since our Fin's didn't choose you!!! Go find a hole somewhere(preferably one with a toilet seat)and crawl in there......"AND DON'T FORGET TO FLUSH"!!!!!
even when this quote was initially said, I don't really see it. Tannehill was a bit of a late riser into the top 10 and it wasn't until the weeks leading up to the draft he was a consideration for the top 3. It's also fair to say people really didn't pay attention to Tannehill until Matt Barkley said he was staying in school.
As soon as Russell and LSU obliterated Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl people were saying if JaMarcus entered the draft he would be the first overall pick.
Now if we are talking about QB risers, Kyle Boller from what I remember (and I was like 12 so I'm probably wrong here) Boller wasn't considered a potential first rounder until after his senior season and then raised a bit more after his workouts.
I notice he didnt bring this up in his interview with Philbin yesterday
