Coming out of Texas A&M all the talk was of how Tannehill is a dual-threat QB. A player with the ability break a game open with his arm or his legs. Not on the level of a guy like RGIII, but Tannehill is clearly mobile.
After all, he rushed for 1965 yards and 15 TDs with the Aggies.
However, his rushing prowess has been largely non-existent with the Dolphins. Not because Tannehill forgot how to move, but because he has tempered that ability and learned that he must be able to succeed from inside the pocket.
Tannehill has just 23 rushing yards this season and one score on the ground. He has allowed the running game to be handled by Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller.
When the situation calls for it he is not afraid to move the pocket laterally or occasionally head up field, but for the most part Tannehill has looked for receivers before bailing out and taking off with his feet.
