Ryan Tannehill QB Texas A&M #17 Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 220

  Strengths: Impressive overall size and strength. Decent mobility; can move around in the pocket to avoid pressure. Looks fairly athletic on roll outs. A threat to take off running when the play breaks down. NFL-caliber accuracy on short and intermediate routes. Took a more active role in offense in senior year, adjusting more plays at line of scrimmage. Team leader on and off the field; well respected by teammates and coaches. Weaknesses: Tends to lock on to a receiver and force the ball into tight coverage. Needs be more patient and go through his progressions. Arm strength is adequate, but nothing special. Accuracy on the deep ball is inconsistent; struggles finding the right trajectory to drop it in over a receiver’s shoulder. Somewhat unorthodox throwing motion (sort of a three-quarters delivery angle); may not be a major issue, but takes away slightly from his height advantage and may contribute to his struggles on deep balls. Comments: Tannehill has the skills to play at the next level and may be able to develop into a starter. He has the size, as well as adequate arm strength and accuracy. Additionally, he appears to have the work ethic and the intelligence necessary to master the intellectual aspect of the game. A team desperate for an upgrade at quarterback may reach for him in the late 1st or 2nd round and throw him into the fire. However, he should really sit and learn for a year or two. His inability to remain patient and read the whole field on a consistent basis will get him in trouble at the next level. Given some time to sit and learn an NFL offensel should allow him to become more comfortable hanging in the pocket longer and making better decisions with the football.
