Tannehill's my favorite quarterback in this draft. I'd take him over Luck. What he's done at A&M is pretty amazing. Comes in and as a walk-on RS Freshman has a record-setting season at wide receiver, including a game with 12 catches for 210 yards. Midway through his junior season, he gets asked to move back to quarterback, the position he was recruited to play. And right away, he has success. The videos I'm linking to are both SEC defenses. Andrew Luck doesn't have a whole lot of games against the caliber of athletes on found on powerhouse SEC schools. Ryan Tannehill can nail the deep out. He does it in front of Patrick Peterson from the far side of the field - he's got plenty of arm strength. I think he has the best arm in this class. He's obviously raw, but I think the upside is so obvious that a team should pick him and work with him. Mechanics and footwork will come. He's already got a really quick, tight throwing motion, and throws with good touch on the run.

And, since he's been more of an athlete through his career and is used to contact and being tackled, getting pressured in the pocket really doesn't seem to phase him that much. He just tries to get the pass off. Don't think a guy studying to be an orthopedic surgeon is going to have much trouble with play books or schemes, either. It's certainly risky to take him #1 overall because he's such an unrefined player, but I'd take him over Luck if given the choice. If he made it to Seattle in round two I'd be stoked, but I think between now and the draft his stock is going to be one of those that just keeps rising. If he has a big bowl game, he's a first round pick, because he's going to blow up the combine and workouts.
