Grading the Talent Surrounding Ryan Tannehill with Miami Dolphins
Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Ryan Tannehill's numbers from the first 10 weeks of the season look unspectacular.

A 58.9 completion percentage, 73.2 quarterback rating and a nearly 1:2 touchdown-to-interception ratio (five TDs, nine INTs) would have most NFL quarterbacks benched by now. 

But, step back and take a look at the supporting cast for which the Miami Dolphins have provided Tannehill.

Only two of his wide receivers—Davone Bess and Brian Hartline—would even make most teams' 53-man rosters. His offensive line is ranked 24th in the league by Pro Football Focus. And only one of his tight ends has reached double digits in receptions. 

By surrounding Tannehill with such pedestrian talent, the Dolphins have placed mountainous pressure on their rookie quarterback to carry this offense week in and week out.

Although he's responding surprisingly well, it's imperative that Miami overhauls its offense this offseason because only one player has warranted an A—and one player even earned an F-. 

Here are individual grades for the rest of the Dolphins' offensive players.
