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.

Clue, could've heard somewhere that Sehorn had 4.4 speed before he wrecked his knee.

sorry bout the double post

I haven't got laid in years.
Where's Herdfan? Let me try again with that old broad.

Clue, what does he's white mean in a nearly all black sport... Is there a little your holding the black down B.S. Again.... They are all athletes....@

Did Home get his 15 minutes of fame at the protest march today?

Hit up the convo

---> DolphinTalk.wordrpress.com

Sehorn was fast. He got hurt trying to return kicks. They decided to try him out doing it because of his speed.

After not getting Peyton, i was ready to protest!

I stand corrected on Barkeley. He has what I would consider an NFL delivery of the football down the field. Comparing tape of Barkeley and Tannehill and it is no comparison. Barkeley has the look of a top 10 pick in an NFL draft. Tannehill does not. QED

Home is only putting on an act, he is not fooling me. lol

Gjh, huh? Im simply stating white guys in the NFL arent typically fast. Not being racist...Am I wrong?

Get your score predictions in for Sept.5th Dallas vs Giants.
Got to cut some lawns, be back later!

Sehorn might of been the last fast white guy in the NFL, Finding a fast white guy in the NFL is like trying to find a good Black hockey player.

Clue is the perpetrator who steals peoples names 5 to 10 posts after he is insulted.

You do know who Pete Carroll is right Ralph??? I trust Carroll's QB evaluation more than I would trust Ireland's. Ireland is a good business manager with a fantastic scout network. A scout NETWORK that would follow Ireland to any team that he goes to. That's why Ireland is here NOT because Ireland is that great of an evaluator in his own right. He relies on the scout's in his NETWROK of people doing the thing daily to find him players. For Ross to lose Ireland he would lose Ireland's network of scouts which is what owners covet more than the man himself...

I hope Ireland & Philbin being there is a smoke screen. Tannehill is not 1st round material.

Home see if Fasano is at the Training Center. i trained him up here in NJ at my gym. Ask him if he remembers NJPHINFAN!

tickle the prostrate for a boat load of glue throwing!!!

FYI, T troll no one..

Home, come back to the dark side at the Sun Sentinel. lol

Tannehill is going to be a Media Hype selection this year... Dolphins would do well to remember that fact.


I like crappy QB's.

Armando- why do you think it is interesting that the browns GM and coach aren't at tannyhill's pro day?
You state later on that he is having aprivate workout for the browns. i would bet they would be at that workout.

A good colon cleanse is needed before that prostrate gets the lovin!!

Tannehills being 65-68 is no news when considering throwing against statues. Heck, the kid had a game last season completing 80% of his passes.

Accuracy isnt his primary problem. Staying consistently acurate is his major problem. Google Tannehill's 2011 game by game stats. Then you'll see for yourselves.

You will find in 2011, Tannehill was just as apt to have a 80% completion game, as he was to have a 40% compltetion game. One thing for sure, in 2011 Texas A&M werent quite sure which Tannehill would show up on a given Saturday.

Would it be the 80%, 40%, or anywhere in between completion percentage Tannehill. That would show up that day. Would it be the Tannehill whose capable of losing to a high school junior varsity team. Or would it be the Tannehill capable of beating RG3?

In the nfl that kind of qb has consistent 8-8 or less seasons written all over him. Steve Grogan and David Woodley were very fast and had big arms too. Didnt they?


Clue, Jarome Iginla has a Jamaican father.

I have to say this , why is Tannehill all of a sudden first round material, if the other QBs came out he wouldnt be in the conversation, so now by default hes a top pick.

My thought process is as such
I won't be upset either way if they do or do not take Tannehill. But how many players are we going to take in the first round year after year that are not a QB.


Your mom called. She said she found the afterbirth and now its time to throw you away. She says stop avoiding her. Please answer your phone! LOL

I honestly don't care if we take Tannehill, Coples, Reiff, DeCastro, Floyd since we need a QB, a pass rusher, a RT, a RG, & a WR. As long as the guy can be can HIGHLY productive at the NFL level then it will be a good pick.

I believe that some people need to grasp two main concepts about this upcoming season;

1) Tannehill would be the ONE draft pick at Number 8 who would NOT contribute in 2012. Tannehill is an inexperienced QB & he'll need some time to develop. BTW--That's definitely NOT a good reason for us not to take him. If Philbin & Sherman are sold on this kid then we MUST take him.

2) In all likelihood we are not going to finish better than 9-7 & that would be a miracle. I actually expect another losing record than but I'm trying my best to stay positive.

yeah and "IF" Dan Marino were 28 years younger we could trade down and pick him up in the mid to late first round....

Why are all these blogger professing to be talent evaluators?

Tannehill has a 3/4 release and therefore will never make it in the NFL
Tannehill only started 14 games...therefore he is dog poo.
Tannehill played against average defenses and therefore will never be able to read NFL defenses.

I'd like to believe the people who make a living out of evaluating talent can spot it when its there.

No one...I mean no one gets 21 NFL teams to witness your pro-day if you don't have what it takes to play in the NFL.

I trust Philbin & Sherman have an eye for talent and if Philbin thinks Tannehill's skill match his WCO scheme, then that's good enough for me and trolls be damned.

Nobody in here knows what the heck they are talking about. Tannehill is definitely a top 10 pick. If you all knew so much, you would be an NFL scout or GM. But since you are not...PLEASE STFU!

The Dolphins made him pay for dinner. That's good Armando. I like it.

I like chicken and biscuits too, Home. *L*
Now get your black aaaazzzzz back to the Sun Sentinel!

Steve Ross stop ripping off Dolphin fans.

trade out of 8 into the midteens.there is a good chance tannehill is still there.if cleveland trades ahead and takes him then take osweiler are cousins.we have 5 picks in the 1st 103 picks already.trading down will likely give us more.we get 1 of the 3 second tier qb's,2 wc offense wideouts,2 olb/de's, 1 te.

Don't overpay for tannehill.osweiler & cousins are in the same class:good not great-some flaws-needs development.

No way do do I see a 9-7 possibility. Learning a brand new offense we were 0-7 out of the gates last season. Now Philbin says every wr has to learn all 3 positions.

We will have to be extremely lucky to come out the gates at 3-5 at best. Then it will be extremely difficult to finish the remaining 8 games at 4-4. A great season next year would be 7-9. To finish 7-9 at best in 2012 would be like a sb season for us.

Chuck a hot mess of poo....heard of slinging sh*t but first time for that one, I like it now lets hope if we draft the kid we don't sh*t and fall back in it.

Tannehill would've been a 4th or 5th rder last year.

Actually most scouts had him top 20 or lower and elevated him slightly after it was more or less evident Luck and RG3 are gone 1 and 2.

Today could quite possibly elevate him into the top ten though.

I'm a little concerned about the foot though. Will he be injury prone?


RG3 would have been drafted as a wr had he came out last year. So what are saying? LOL


That seems to be the book on Tannehill. Personally I think that the frustration of our fan base may finally force Ireland to take a QB in the first round & b/c of this he'll take a player that has no business going that high.

BTW--Can anyone explain to me why Ross &/or Ireland weren't asked how they were planning to fit Peyton Manning's asking price of close to $20 Million under the cap for this season??? And if so wouldn't that have made resigning Soliai (who Ireland claims was a MUST) or any other player for that matter financially impossible??? We didn't sign Manning & we still can't afford a starting WR, a starting RT, or a starting RG. Hmmmm....I'm shocked Manning didn't want to play for the Dolphins after all.

Elite Dolphin QBs since 1966, almost 50 years;

1. Dan Marino
2. ?
3. ?
4. ?
5. ?

so sad.

Which was Ireland's worst draft pick?

A) Pat White

B) Philip Merling

C) D Thomas

D) Pat Turner

E) Brian Hartline

I don't think you had us going 11-5 & making the playoffs in 2008 either. I know I didn't. And I'm not sure how many people had the Niners going 13-3 & playing in the NFC Championship game in Harbaugh's first season either.

If you read what I wrote I totally expect us to have another losing season as well but anything is possible....

Diabetus, Liberty, Alien Spores, Hard on...
Think about it.

they definitely F'd up big time by not signing winston. that guy is a pancake machine. put him and jerry on the right and fa-getta bout it. a great wc offense usually features a top running game and winston could have been a huge upgrade. lets see if murtha & garner can produce.either could have outplayed colombo last year,hell peter falk as detective columbo could have outplayed marc colombo


It has to be Pat White. He was a complete & total bust. At least the other players are still in the league.


Bob Griese was elite.he didn't have great stats but he didn't need em. as Kooch has stated 'we could have turned the sky dark with footballs(like joe namath's jets)but then we would have wasted 39 & 22.

We Have Draft Picks,

For starters, We could have done it and still kept Soliai. Bell and Marshall would still be gone. But the surest way to create the neccessary cap space would have been to cut Dansby. I hear Dansby is $11 million against the cap space alone.

I havent personally checked Dansby's numbers, but Im pretty sure its at least $8 million. Im pretty sure Carey would have been bounced too. Carey may still get cut this season if he canr land a starting spot. He still is paid as a starter.

I believe signing Peyton definitely would have meant letting Dansby go. I still wouldnt be overly surprised if Dansby, because of his huge committment against the cap, still becoemes a cap casualty. He makes a helluva lot of money for a guy who's yet to make a pro bowl. Not even as an alternate.

We lost Marshall and Mike Nolan. The new coaches are installing completely new systems and I dont see any great help coming from the the draft. Jake Long's health is a huge question mark. I dont see any better then 5-11.

We Have Draft Picks,

there was a time when Manning's recovery was in doubt and any team willing to take the risk (our very own Mr. Ross) would sign him to an incentives-laden contract.

The 20 million dollar reaming only took place after a full, early recovery.

Dansby wouldnt be cut because he isnt a really good player. He would be cut because we cant afford a really player making the salary he does and isnt at least a pro bowl player. Yet to even become a pro bowl alternate.

Dansby was brought here to be pro bowl special. He's yet to fulfill that expectation.

I would not be disappointed if tannehill goes before our 8 pick. he's a work in progress and we can develop other QBs. The 8th pick has to become a started very quick. I'd say if we stay at 8 either take a skilled position like WR or take a pass rusher.

Mark, WTH is that?

WTH is what?

Ireland's doing due dilligence on Tannehill. Shermen didnt show because he didnt want to lend a possible biased eye. Ireland/Philbin will return and exchange notes with Sherman about what Sherman already knows and have told them of Tannehill.

Thanks to Sherman, Im sure Ireland and Philbin went in knowing all of Tannehill's strengths and weakness. So they'll specifically know if they saw anything Tannehill has improved or not approved on. Then they'll make thier draft observations from.

Im also sure they may have him come in for a personal workout and have him do things he'll definitely need to do in Philbin's offense. Then they'll make thier final assement from there.
