Tannehill pro day under way (Dolphins in the house)

Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill's pro day is proceeding before a large contingent in College Station, Tex.

The Dolphins are there with general manager Jeff Ireland and coach Joe Philbin confirmed. I do not know if offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is there. I will try to confirm. [Update: Sherman is not in College Station.]

Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports the Dolphins contingent had dinner with Tannehill on Wednesday night. They forced him to pay.

Nah, just kidding. I'm assuming the Dolphins paid.

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, there are 21 teams present for the event. The Cleveland Browns are there, represented by offensive coordinator Brad Childress among others. It is interesting perhaps only to me that the Browns' major voices -- general manager Tom Heckert and head coach Pat Shurmur were not present. They were at Alabama's pro day to see running back Trent Richardson.

The Broncos, Chiefs, Bills, Saints and Seahawks are there, with head coach Pete Carroll representing his team.

Because he suffered a broken foot this offseason, scouts wanted to see Tannehill run to make sure he is relatively healed. According to reports, Tannehill ran the 40-yard dash once and clocked (hand timing) between 4.59 and 4.62.

Tannehill completed his first 24 consecutive throws, according to NFLDraftScout.com analyst Dane Brugler. He had a pass dropped then he had another pass dropped on his 42nd throw. He finished the workout with 65 completions  -- 65 for 68 with two dropped passes.

Yes, quarterbacks typically ace their pro day workouts. I get it. But it is always better that they perform well than if they chuck a hot mess of poo. So give the guy that.

I remind you Tannehill, who started 19 games at quarterback, was a wide receiver before was moved to QB. He will go in the first round as a QB. He said after the workout he has private workouts already set up with the Browns, Chiefs, and Eagles.

You guys are so immature. I'm going bicycle riding.

Try taking the training wheels off this time Jahndoh! *L*

Call me a reckless fool of a Dolphin fan but I'm all in for picking Tannehill at #8...unless Richardson or Blackmon fall to us. I happen to think that being a receiver and successful one at that, is an asset to Tannehill. It shows he's a superior athlete, that he can learn fast and that he has a huge upside. His potential is key to the decision to draft him, more so than other players. The bigger question is will he be better than Landry Jones or Barkley?

We NEED a QB.. Why NOT Take Tannehil @ 8 if he is available? We WASTED a Pick on Ted Ginn Jr in 2007 @ #9 instead of Taking Brady Quinn When we Really Needed a QB.. Then took John Beck in the 2nd Round.. So How Much WORSE Could the Gamble be by Taking Tannehil with the Pick at #8?

If Tannehill can throw the ball and catch it too, it will save us from having to draft a wide receiver.
