2012 NFL Draft Coverage – Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins
Ryan Tannehill – Miami Dolphins – Pick 5
Cian Fahey: The Dolphins were obviously in desperate need of a quarterback and Tannehill became their guy. Despite being 19th overall on Mike Mayock’s board and having a second round grade from some scouts, the Dolphins take him in the top 10. Playing in that division is going to be really tough for Tannehill as a rookie and the Dolphins have very few legitimate weapons for him to work with. David Garrard should be the starter this year, or Matt Moore.
Projection: 400 yards, 2 touchdowns, 4 interceptions.
Kevin Nelson: I do not know how much I believe Ryan Tannehill will play in his rookie season. He does not have much experience and is very raw. Does he have talent? Absolutely. But he has a lot of work to do and not to mention Miami doesn’t exactly have a plethora of weapons around him after trading Brandon Marshall. I do not think Tannehill will be a factor in fantasy this upcoming season.
