Heading into the 2012 NFL Draft Ryan Tannehill was one of the most intriguing prospects in the Draft, and his selection would"turn the entire first round on its head!" But with all of the trades that happened in the first round Tannehill's selection at No. 8 to the Miami Dolphins got kind of lost in the wind. But the guys at SB Nation didn't forget about him, and they gave the Dolphins a "B" in their NFL Draft Grades for the selection.
Not going to knock a team for making a bold move to acquire a quarterback. That's simply what it takes in this league. Good luck, Ryan Tannehill.
The Dolphins hope that Tannehill can eventually step in and become their franchise signal caller, but we won't know whether that is the case for a few years. But Tannehill has a lot of potential and the Dolphins should be applauded for taking a risk. Here is some more analysis from SB Nation on Youtube.
