    if he had stayed in college the chiefs would be taking him # 1 overall this year, and we would be left with garbage!:hclap:

    Dude please.... You Fin Fans are reaching the level of Jet fans after Sanchez's two AFC Championship games..How about we wait till this guy does something...i.e
    1. Win more games than he loses
    2. Throw for more touchdowns than interceptions
    3. Make better decisions
    4. Become more accurate
    5. Lead us to the playoffs

    Relax and enjoy the ride and stop crowning dude the next Marino

    Re: Tanehill # 1 pick in this years draft!

    If he had progresed this season at A&M he may well have been the number one pick.

    Weak Qb class though.

    You never know what happens if someone stays their senior year, though. Look at Matt Barkley. I think he would have gone #2 overall if he had declared last season and now... yikes.

    This thread makes no sense. He was a senior QB. Played two years as a WR and two as a QB.

    I wouldn't feel too great about that. I think Barkley will turn out OK.

    The OP is comparing Tannehill to this years crop of quarterbacks in the draft. Compared to those coming out now, Tannehill most likely would be the first quarterback off the board. With the Chiefs likely going QB at #1, Tannehill probably would be the #1 overall pick in 2013.

    And it would be a major mistake. I like the kid but I don't see greatness in him to warrant that high a pick.

    Let's just wait and see. The book on Tannehill is far from finished.

    He reminds me of David Garrard. Ok but nothing special. I hope I'm wrong but I don't see it.

    I love all these "scouts" on here. Tannehill could turn out to be great or he could suck! All the OP is saying is that given how Tanny played in college last year IF he were in this years draft he would be the top qb. How the hell does anyone know how good he will be? He wasn't even supposed to start this season...how can you possibly say how good he is GOING to be! Too many of you sound like Omar.lol

    Seriously? What possibly in ONE season leads you to that conclusion? This is a completely ridiculous and baseless statement! SMH

    No the OP is saying he agrees with the article that Tanny would be the #1 pick in the draft this year. It's laughable.

    Doesn't see the entire field, mediocre accuracy and poor pocket awareness.

    What did I say that needed you to verify or correct what I said? Read my post again. Also, the idea that Tannehill could be the #1 overall pick if he were in this draft is not laughable. It is a very realistic possibility. This year's group isn't all that great and Tannehill likely grades out higher than most if not all at the QB position.

    I did read it. However, the OP's point of posting this thread was to annoint him the #1 draft pick if he came out this year. He's doing it to dig for a silver lining among another mediocre season this franchise had. You tried to make it about just the QB's, but that's not what the OP is saying at all. He could've very well regressed like Matt Barkley. You think people expected his fall off? Course not. That's why it's pointless to automatically suggest anyone would've been guaranteed top pick in the draft had they stayed.

    prob be clowney if he declares, as bad as the chiefs need a QB, and we would've had another season with moore with about an identical record, and we would've been looking at drafting aaron murray this year, i was on his jock last year and wanted us to bypass drafting a til murray declared. im not complaining about tannehill but dont see him as a full on hit #1 pick, nor any other qbs that are coming out this year

    Agreed. Its so comical to read these premature 'expert analyses' from the armchair QB club.

    Too bad Clowney can't declare. Now that would be the top consensus among most people's board. Can't wait for him to be in the 2014 draft. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/01/nfl-draft-rules-a-bad-deal-for-jadeveon-clowney/

    Well that's kind of the point of having message boards. I consider myself a homer but I see red flags with Tannehill. Are we supposed to lie?

    Accuracy I will give you. The other two, no way! His pocket awareness was a strength and you have no idea if he sees the entire field unless you study the film every game. I watched every game just like most on here, there is no way you could possibly tell what he was seeing. Does he lock on to one receiver on occasion? Of course, all qbs do at times. THE GUY IS A ROOKIE who came into the league with a limited resume. I have no idea how Tannehill will turn out....but to pigeon hole someone after one season is completely and utterly ridiculous. Given the circumstances, Tannehill performed pretty solid in my opinion and while he obviously needs to improve, he played pretty well overall!

    Tannehill was a Senior when he was drafted, he had no eligibility left to stay another year in college. But Yes, if he was able to be drafted in 2013, he would have had a chance, to be the 1st QB off the board.

    Did you even read the post? Where did the OP suggest anything that even remotely related to comparing RT to Marino, or anything you are mentioning in your post? Talk about, "Dude please"...

    Doesnt see the entire field - Eh thats debatable
    Mediocre accuracy - Would like to see a higher completion percentage and some of his throws were off but it would be nice if the receivers could catch balls that hit them in the hands or chest. With that completion %age is certainly a skewed number.
    Poor pocket awareness - Definitely wrong here. He has tremendous pocket awareness.

    So you have no opinions on the QB position, the OL, DL, WR, CB, LB, S, RB.... positions? Not sure what the point of being on a forum is if you have no opnions.

    In Finheaven no negative opinions allowed, just worship Mr. 7-9 Ireland and everything that he has done.

    Ryan Tannehill has poor pocket awareness, that's funny.

    He's no Andrew Luck, but that's not a knock on him. Go back and watch some plays from Matt Moore last year and then compare them to Tannehill under pressure this year. One guy has 'pocket presence' and the other does not.

    I agree and there would be a thousand posts as to why we should trade up to get him.

    I guarantee that Kansas City would trade us the first overall pick right now for Tannehill. We would be foolish to accept that offer though. In a different year we would take that deal, but they wouldnt offer it.

    It's quite possible. Tannehill woild have been money in the Sumlin/Kingsbury offense Johnny Football ran all the way to the Heisman. If Tannehill was still in school and developed at the rate he was showing in an offense that used his athleticism more he'd be top 5 for sure. Let's take a look at the top guys right now...

    Matt Barkley has arm strength questions, a bad shoulder now, and a bit of an attitude problem (very rude to a few radio stations requesting interviews and tends to be a jerk on twitter when people don't like something he does)

    Geno Smith had great numbers but struggled against competent defenses and had the best WR corp in the country, and is a late riser

    Logan Thomas won't even enter the draft cause he struggled so badly

    Tyler Bray is a moron

    So your choice if you need a QB this year is hope for Geno or Barkley to be consistent or that Bray will get his head out of his ***. Those options are all better than picking Mike Glennon.

    Of course, my personal favorite is Tajh Boyd but he isn't entering.

    We are very lucky that the Dolphins got their quarterback in the last draft and don't have to worry about looking through this bunch. Sucky year to be looking for a quarterback like the Chiefs, Cardinals, Bills and Jets are.

    which is ironic because at this time 2 years ago, and even last year, people thought the 2013 class would be really good...

    Matt Barkley had a rough year
    Tom Savage has transferred twice
    Logan Thomas underachieved
    Tyler Wilson was hurt by a crappy year
    Tyler Bray is an idiot
    Brock Osweiler entered last year's draft

    I still cringe and want to curl up into a fetal position every time I recall that some people wanted us to draft Landry Jones in November of last year.

    He was good for a while and then he hit the thickest wall I have ever seen a college QB hit.

    he was good on a fairly loaded OU offense. Looked shakey the next year, and then when Broyles got hurt he fell flat. Can't read a defense either.

    My stance was always take whatever QB you think will be the future whether I liked it or not.

    That's another guy to add to my list, went in to last year looking like he'd be a lock first rounder, now... yeesh.

    Tannehill will be defined in 2013 by the 4th Qtr and winning. Teams headed to the Playoffs in 2012. The QBs did it in the the 4th QTR Colts (Luck-7 GW/OT Drives) Matt Ryan 6. Russell Wilson 4. Tannehill had Michael Egnew in 2012, so he gets a Pass. But 2013 we need some Game Winning Drives Dude.

    i wonder what people would say IF Luck, RGIII and Wilson somehow hit the wall or play less dynamic in their sophomore seasons in the NFL come 2013 and Tannehill ascends in his development to become a top 10-12 QB?

    I actually started a thread about this earlier today. Contrary to what some may think, he is a pretty good 4th QTR QB. 6TD's only 3 INT's
