Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider indicated that they would consider taking Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the 12th overall pick, but they don’t believe he’ll be there.
“He’s a really good player and he’s got a great upside,” Schneider said about Tannehill per the News Tribune. “We would definitely consider him (at No. 12). Just because we’ve done these things, the guys know – it’s no disrespect to Tarvaris, or Matt or Josh (Portis) at all.
“The guys know at some point we wanted to get this thing rolling where we would be able to get a younger quarterback in, and kind of getting them going, whether it’s in the first round or second round or however it comes.”
“It’s fun to talk about, but I mean he’s not going to be there,” Schneider said. “You know, I think he’s going to get drafted pretty high.”
Even though Tannehill is expected to go in the top ten, I wouldn’t surprise me if ends up also falling to the Seahawks.
