NFL Mock Draft 2012: A Ryan Tannehill And Mike Sherman Reunion In Miami?

In the latest mock draft from SI.com, Don Banks has the Cleveland Browns passing on Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill at No. 4, allowing him to drop to the Miami Dolphins at No. 8:

8QB Ryan Tannehill Texas A&M Sr. 6-4 222

The Dolphins finally get their future starting quarterback, and it'll be offensive coordinator Mike Sherman's job to determine when it's time to transition from the Matt Moore/David Garrard tandem to the athletic and accurate former Aggie.

It will be extremely interesting to see what the Dolphins do if Tannehill is on the clock. While he has skyrocketed up draft boards in the last few months due to the paucity of top QB's available, there are still a lot of questions about how he finished his final season at Texas A&M and his overall game experience.

There's no one in a better position to answer those questions than Mike Sherman, his former head coach and current Miami offensive coordinator.

Sherman has watched Tannehill intimately for four seasons and there's no one in a better position to evaluate his NFL potential.
