Hey Dolphin Fans !!
On Thursday Ryan Tannehill held his personal "Pro Day" where prospects are provided (upon their own turf) the opportunity to impress potential suitors with their positional skills, and agility.. Tannehill was unable to play in the Senior Bowl, or participate at the combine due to a foot stress fracture, so besides all the film on him (being that of just barely two years as The Texas A&M Quarterback), this was his one chance to show his stuff in a one on one skills type challenge..
The Miami Dolphins were on hand, represented by GM Jeff Ireland, director of player personnel Brain Gaine, and new head coach Joe Philbin along with twenty-two other teams..
During the afternoon Tannehill workout in a toss and catch exhibition versus no defenders, he completed 65 of 68 passes while two of the incompletions were wide receiver drops.. Tannehill also ran a 4.62 forty yard dash, which sped the process of his reportedly attending a dinner engagement at the expense of Ross' checkbook..
The third ranked quarterback of the 2012 draft was the leading receiver of the Texas A&M Aggies over the first two and a half years of his college career, while during his mere two years as their quarterback he compiled a 62.5 completion percentage, accrued 5450 passing yards, 42 touchdowns, 21 interceptions, and a 134.2 quarterback rating with the Dolphins current offensive coordinator (Mike Sherman) as his head coach..
Sherman on Tannehill;
"Like all good quarterbacks he had great poise. Very confident in any system, west coast or not, Any quarterback has to be confident in his own skin and believe in himself. They always say that a great quarterback makes those around him better. I thought Favre did that. I think Aaron Rodgers does that. I think Tannehill does that as well." Sherman coached Favre, Rodgers, and Tannehill for extensive periods while playing a huge part in each individuals growth !!
For those that can't stand a fleet of foot quarterback because they're too likely to abandon the pass play.. Tannehill had only 372 rushing yards to go with 5 rushing Touchdowns in his 106 attempts over 25 games as quarterback, (basically 4 point something attempts per game at an average of 3.25 yards per carry).. Though he's likely the most accurate on the run potentially available quarterback prospect in the 2012 draft, so when he does use his feet he keeps his head up-field, and doesn't abandon the pass play!!
On Friday March 30th, the Miami Dolphin Brass will be attending the "Pro-Day" of Arizona State Quarterback Brock Osweiler, (my personal second round favorite potential Dolphin QB)..
"" BROCK "", just sounds like a QUARTERBACK ; ) !!
