NFL Draft 2012: Questions About Ryan Tannehill Being Ready For The NFL

Former Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Ryan Tannehill seems poised to be selected within the top ten picks of the 2012 NFL Draft. Playing in a pro-style offense under former NFL head coach Mike Sherman has helped Tannehill hone his craft after switching from wide receiver to quarterback just a few years prior.

However, there are some that see Tannehill's game as flawed and his inexperience at the quarterback position as an issue. Dan Pompei of National Football Post discussed with college scouts about Tannehill's prospects moving forward:

Quarterback—Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M. He is a bit green as a passer and there is a lot he has not seen. On the plus side, he has played in a pro style offense. On the negative side, he has been inconsistent in it. Brock Osweiler of Arizona State also is a contender here. He left school early and was a starter for only one season, so he isn’t an experienced passer. What’s more, he played in a simple offense and was mostly in the shotgun.

In the latest mock draft Tannehill is slated to go No. 8 to the Miami Dolphins. The draft is less than two weeks away.
