Tannehill still seems like the pick

One hour from the start of the 2012 NFL draft -- by 21st that I'm covering, by the way -- and every indication continues to point to the Dolphins picking Ryan Tannehill.

Why?

Who you got that's better? No seriously, who is better that will potentially be available at the No. 8 overall selection?

Hear my heart, I am not trying to convince you that Tannehill is the best player for the Dolphins. I am merely trying to explain what the Dolphins may be thinking. That is that there is no shining talent that is likely to be available at No. 8 that is a must-pick guy.

Mark Barron? Is he Ed Reed?

He's not even a free safety. He's a strong safety.

Quinton Coples? He's not Julius Peppers. Sorry.

Luke Kuechly? I love the kid. He's going to be a fine player. But the Dolphins have Karlos Dansby and this is a team that never won anything with great inside linebackers like Zach Thomas or John Offerdahl on the roster. Inside linebackers have to be all-time talents such as Ray Lewis to make a big difference and even then they need help all around.

David DeCastro? A guard? At No. 8. Not a value.

You guys know I love Fletcher Cox. I was the first in South Florida to suggest him as a possible pick by Miami. But he's so good, he might not be around when Miami picks.

I would consider Morris Claiborne as a potential difference-maker and so would the Dolphins, but it's unlikely he'll be there.

Bottom line, the quarterback with the potential to be a franchise player -- regardless of the fact he won't be that his first season in the league -- is the logical pick. It may not be right. But it is logical.

Let's see what happens.

I'll be in the comments section as the draft begins. Join me there.

ARMANDO,

THIS IS A BLITSKRIEG DRAFT!!

Armando.. i listen every am from Jersey.. fun and informative.. entertaining

Odds are high Henne STILL isn't a Leader, nor does he make good decisions, ESPECIALLY in the Red Zone.

Here is where henne ends up biting us in the ass... By outta no where starting to play excellent... Look at past players that haven done much here go somewhere else and excel..

Fisher is stock piling....hope it blows up in his face....

quiz, the Browns knew they wanted Richardson and were afraid someone would jump in front of them for the guy they believe is the third best player in the draft. They were just protecting themselves.

Morris woulda been good trade bait!! Not looking good for us to trade down!!

Darn...Claiborne would of looked good in a Dolphins jersey...Please no Tannehill...

Looks like Tannehill's coming to Miami boys. Im feeling it in my gut!


TANNEHILL!!!!! THE FUTURE STARTS TODAY.

FLOYD please

ROSS WILL NEVER MISS ON TANNEHILL .......

Trade please!

Seems Tannehill will be coming to Miami. So now the interesting part will be day 2. Who'll be our 2nd rd pick.

Armando,

THAT'S "BLITZKRIEG" DRAFT.

If Fins take the whole alloted time, it's trade down time.

Did the Bucs just gamble by moving down to 7th and lose, they wanted Richardson and lost, then Claiborne..... There goes my hope of Dallas trading up w/Dolphins....

Still would like to trade back..

Cox or Gilmore in the first, Cousins in the second...

We're on the clock!! NO TRADE!!! Crap!!!

ON THE CLOCK BABY. COME ON DOWN TANNY!!!

Please get a QB-KILLA !!!!!

Rams now have three second-round picks.

NO to HENNEHILL Ireland.....just say NO....not @ # 8....

Oh yeah, I hate Dallas..

Well here it comes...

I agree Read, Bucs got bit in da butt

The Bucs selected Barron...Wow...No 7? Yikes...

Is Tannehill @ the draft......or is he pulling a Mallett and staying home....

God not Tannehill...

D ??

FINS TAKE YOUR TIME. TRADE DOWN!!

Cox, Tanny, or trade makes me happy.

Fletcher Cox, Tannehill, Coples, Gilmore all will be there.

I'd take Cox but whatever. It'll probably be Tannehill.

He's there Kris.. Was interviewed a lil while ago..

What did Dallas give up?
