Ryan Tannehill
Height: 6’3
Weight: 215 lbs.
Projection: Round 2-3
Grade: 6.5 (Grading Scale)

An underrated athlete who has flipped flopped between WR and QB while at Texas A&M…looks comfortable rolling to his right or left…does a good job squaring his shoulders to his target when throwing on the move…steps into his throws even in the face of pressure, willing to take a shot to complete a pass…does a good job getting rid of the ball in a hurry and has enough arm strength to make all of the NFL throws…very technically sound in his lower body, has clean footwork for a guy who has limited QB experience…does a nice job resetting his feet when moving around in the pocket…keeps his eyes down field after he escapes the pocket does a good job identifying open WR’s coming into vacated zones.

He’s a relatively inexperienced QB when it comes to playing big time college football…he hasn’t had much time taking snaps under center and has spent most of his time having to make limited defensive reads…Still learning how to place the proper touch on the ball, has a tendency to put too much velocity on passes that need more finesse…loses some of his accuracy on his deep ball, has more of tendency to put it up for grabs than drop it in the bucket…not a game breaking runner, he can hurt you with his feet but he can’t make you miss in the open field…Still makes some poor decisions when forcing the ball over the middle…needs to do a better job looking off the deep safety…would like to see him put better touch on his throws into the intermediate zone between the LB and SAF…Needs to take that next step in his development if he is to become anything more than a good NFL backup QB.
