One of this year's most contentious NFL draft question marks has been resolved: Much-debated Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill is going to the Miami Dolphins with the 8th overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. The one-time wide receiver was a statistical standout for an Aggie team that struggled to maintain leads late in the 2011 season, and were so drastically up-and-down that it cost head coach Mike Sherman his job.
Some draftniks called Tannehill a reach, especially as chatter increased that the native Texan might jump into the overall no. 3 slot after Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III went to Indianapolis and Washington. Tannehill missed the NFL Combine with a broken foot, but had a very impressive pro day on campus in College Station.
