Found March 29, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill held his pro day today, and afterward NFL Network correspondent Mike Mayock wrote this of the workout-

“This was a scripted workout and it confirmed what I saw on tape. Potentially, down the road, he could be a franchise quarterback. The problem is, he’s not ready to play right now. He’s very raw; he only had 19 starts in college. However, because the NFL is so overheated right now when it comes to finding franchise quarterbacks, I think the kid is probably going to go higher than he should. I think Cleveland has to take him at No. 4, and if they don’t, Miami is sitting there at No. 8. So the worst-case scenario for him is, I think, that he’s going to go at No. 8 to the Dolphins. “

I implore you to click the link and read all of what Mayock had to say about the workout.

Mary Kay Cabot tweeted the following- “Browns OC Childress told Ft. Worth S-T Tannehill is “capable of doing all the things you need to be able to do.”

Tom Heckert and Pat Shurmur were at Alabama RB Trent Richardson’s pro day.

Mike Mayock is right about Ryan Tannehill and the Browns… sort of

The comments to our headline post about Mike Mayock’s opinion of Ryan Tannehill turned out to be a discussion of what it means for something to be newsworthy. In the case of Mike Mayock’s opinion, as someone who has invested pretty heavily in the Browns, I would rather know it than not know it. That doesn’t mean I believe it all, but it is an important part of the equation...

Tannehill in the top ten? Bad idea.

Ryan Tannehill does not make sense for the Cleveland Browns.Not with the fourth pick, and not with a Top 10 pick either.The Texas A&M quarterbacks name keeps coming up, but if the Browns were to take him it would be a serious error in judgment. Not the same as New Coke, mind you, but an error nonetheless.With the draft about a month away, several names are mentioned as the Browns...

Dolphins aren’t sure if they’d draft Ryan Tannehill

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, a Miami Dolphins official insisted to him that they don’t know if they’ll draft former Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the 8th overall pick, if he ends up falling to them.

Why the Seahawks sit down with Tannehill was a smokescreen

With the 14th pick, the Cowboys select...

One of the interesting things about NFL teams losing their minds over Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill's recent pro day is that it means the Dallas Cowboys have a better shot at landing an elite player. Of course, owner Jerry Jones is still capable of undermining the entire process if he takes a last-minute call from one of his cronies and big-foots his hard-working scouting...
