    I don't claim to be a draft guru at all. Far from it. I have been saying he would end up a first round pick for most of the season. I even started doing the Trailin' for Tannehill thing around the time we won our third game.

    The only reason I knew about Tannehill was because Von Miller was an aggie.

    Also never heard of RG3 until the TCU game.

    It started as a joke aimed at the "win games now and the draft will work itself out" crowd, but I always thought that he was the third best QB behind Luck and Weeden once Barkley stayed in school.

    If you want to take the chance with a number 8 pick that T-hill will be the first QB in THE HISTORY of the NFL to have success when becoming a QB so late, then draft him. I'd say you have a better chance for a scratch off for 10 million bucks. At least that has happened before.

    Sure. As a bettor you get to know these guys, often unintentionally. The guy standing next to you in a sportsbook might launch a tirade against a player and you realize...yeah, that's the guy who screwed me last week, I hate him too.

    Tannehill has actually been very good to me, as primarily a first half bettor. I really didn't understand the commotion this season. The second half is a circus. Best of luck projecting that. Every time there's a, "Can you believe that?" moment, invariably it happened during the second half. That will be true decades from now.

    Most of all, I remember Tannehill from late 2010. A string of wins placed Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl against LSU. The game was pick-em. That game can't be pick-em. LSU had considerably more talent and was rated much higher in preseason. The gap between conferences, particularly defensively, was overwhelming.

    Tannehill and A&M started the game in chirpy fashion. Jumping all over the place. I think it was 10-0. Then the young LSU defensive backs, and overall talent level, started getting to Tannehill. He made several high profile gaffes and LSU managed to reel in Texas A&M in time to rescue my first half bet and game bet. The final margin was a semi-rout.

    That game is emblematic of the reason I wouldn't be thrilled with Tannehill. Texas A&M was only pick-em with LSU based on late hoopla, not foundational logic. I'd love to take a quarterback at 8 who was rated there prior to the season. Otherwise it smacks against my core beliefs. Among these guys, a year ago it was Luck and others. IMO, there's a big chance it will turn out that way.

    RGIII was not that great the year before last. I never heard of him then either until this year. All I have to say is look at the tape and Tannehill looks better then any Miami dolphins QB I have seen since Mariono retired. I think that says enough about why phins should draft him.

    Sooooo....

    Let me see if I have this straight by the OP...

    OP doesn't watch college football....

    But the OP knows that the media is feeding us bull**** on Ryan Tannehill because he watched so much college football?

    Makes about as much sense as a screen door on a submarine.
