Anyone else here what Brian Billick had to say about Tannehill on M&M yesterday morning? Basically he compares Tannehill's sudden rise in stock to Jemarcus Russell's when he was drafted number one overall. He wasnt comparing their abilities to one another, but just that Oaklands need for a QB is what made J Russell's stock sore up to number one overall, and Billick believes that CLE and MIA's need for a QB is what is making Tannehill's stock climb so high. He then said need is a terrible evaluator when assessing who to draft. I agree with this statement, but at some point you have to stick to your gut and take a chance on a guy if it feels right to you. Tannehill for me... Doesnt feel right, don't know why, it just doesnt. I'd rather have an Osewiller/Weeden/Cousins/Foles in the 2nd round. Maybe take the reciever from Notre Dame or just the safe top 10 talent that we actually need in Coples with our 1st, or trade down.

I think thats what puts him ahead of Weeden and Osweiler. His height and mobility put him ahead of Cousins (I think he is the short one). After watching his pro day.....combined with his inability to beat top teams and perform in clutch spots I hope he isn't a phin. With that said, if we do draft him I won't bitch and I will be excited to see if he can turn out to be our future. I personally don't like QBs who didn't play in a pro stlye offense, Osweiler and Weeden are guys who basically have to be taught to play QB in a completely different way and also adjust to the speed of the NFL once they learn. Its the one thing I didn't like about RG3. Not everyone is Cam Newton.

What is the difference between those QB's in the 2nd or Tannehill in the 1st?

But I'd NEVER draft a QB with small hands.And I do not like the way he throws the ball in a flat arc much like Chad Henne.IMO, one thing that Matt Moore can do is drop the ball down over a defender to a WR etc. I saw him throw 2 such passes to R Bush last season that Chad Henne could not do in 100 tries. Take a 55 gallon barrel and set it up 40 yard downfield. Henne could hit the barrel with enough tries but Moore could put the ball IN the barrel. If you puit a wall up, Henne would now have a bigger problem hitting the barrel. There is a QB training tool that they used a few years ago at the Senior Bowl that Pat White simply could not do. They put a adjustable 8 to 10 foot screen up and ask you to drop the ball over it. Tannehill has the same size hands as little Patty White. The NFL football is so much bigger then the college one. In a perfect situation with balls already worn in I'm sure that any QB could have a great Pro Day throwing against air.John Beck had small hands and we saw what happened, the ball would just fall out of them when he tried to pass. The way a player adjusts is by putting his hand further back on the ball which messes with accuracy, the way the ball leaves his hand etc etc.

"A lot of it wasn't his fault, but you want him to win those games to cement himself. But he's got ability."He made stupid decisions in critical situations - thats not what I want in the scouting report for my new QB.Blew leads in all six defeats this season and then the coaches were fired - if Sherman wants him then he is suffering from the same delusions Sparano had for Henne, just 1 more year I need just 1 more yearHe not a 2 year starter, he a 4 year starter who couldn't earn the starting job his 1st 2 years and redshirted so that’s 5 years at Texas A&M. Nothing this guy has done tells me he's a top ten pick,
