Ryan Tannehill Getting Top 10 Talk Despite Missing Senior Bowl

Despite missing the Senior Bowl due to a broken foot suffered in pre-draft training, Texas A&M senior QB Ryan Tannehill is shooting up draft boards.

According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Gil Brandt, the long-time NFL personnel director of the Dallas Cowboys who moonlights as a draft expert for NFL.com, thinks Tannehill will be a top 10 pick.

Tannehill, a strong-armed 6'4 225 QB who began his career in College Station as a WR, has all the physical tools NFL scouts look for in a QB.

But after a strong junior season in replace of Jerrod Johnson, the Big Spring product struggled down the stretch as a senior as the Aggies stumbled to an incredibly disappointing 7-6 finish that cost Mike Sherman his job.

However, Tannehill still had impressive statistics, albeit mainly against Big 12 defenses trying to play "bend don't break" against the conference's high-powered spread offenses. Last year, he completed 67.5% of his passes for 3,744 yards, 29 TD's and 15 INT's.

With Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III locked in as top five picks and multiple NFL teams desperate for QB help, Tannehill will be one of the most scrutinized prospects in the Draft over the next four months as he battles to be the No. 3 QB on team's draft boards.
