Pick: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
The Dolphins need a quarterback. Or they do not, depending on what day of the week it is and who is talking.
Lately, information coming out of the Dolphins front office has been muddled, with reports coming one day saying Stephen Ross has mandated that Jeff Ireland find a franchise quarterback immediately, and Miami gushing about Matt Moore the next.
Then there is the fact Ireland and Joe Philbin had dinner with Tannehill the night before they attended his pro day.
Tannehill's draft stock remains eristical, with some scouts insisting he is not worth a top pick while an increasing number of others warming up to the former Aggie.
Whatever scouting opinions there are about him, draft buzz surrounding Tannehill is growing louder. He completed 60 of 64 passes and ran a 4.58 40-yard-dash at his aforementioned pro day, adding fuel to the fire that he will be a top-10 pick.
While there may be questions about his turnovers and a perceived inability to close games, Tannehill represents a potential franchise quarterback for Miami. They may have other needs, but landing a potential franchise player at the most important position may trump everything else.
