NFL Draft Grades 2012: Dolphins Receive "B-" Grade From Sports Illustrated

The Miami Dolphins have received mixed reviews on their 2012 NFL Draft, and now Sports Illustrated has voiced their opinions with their draft grades.

The Dolphins are felt by many to be taking a big chance on first-round selection Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, a move SI isn't exactly crazy about when giving the 'Fins a "B-" grade for their draft.

This all depends on how much you believe in Ryan Tannehill. I'm on the fence, and especially suspect of his value at No. 8. Jonathan Martin has work to do to start at right tackle, but he was a bargain at 42. The wild card here is TE Michael Egnew (78), who will have to play a key role, since Miami more or less neglected the receiver spot. Grade: B-minus

Of course, if Tannehill ends up being a great quarterback for the Dolphins, it will sway their draft very much in their favor.
