Hooray!  Most of Dolphin Nation is praising the utter joy of drafting a QB in round 1.  Somewhere off in the distance, a certain teacher and Miami Dolphin fan was praising his students about the Dolphins pick as they walzed into the classroom before taking a nearly impossible vocabulary quiz.  The name Ryan Tannehill sprang off of his tongue as the students prepared for their quiz seeing their teacher in the best mood in awhile after a Dolphins draft. "Who did they take?" They inquired...Ryan Tannehill!   Ryan Tannehill.  From Henne to Tanny…that is what is going on.
