Healthy Tannehill to run forty-yard dash at Pro Day

AP

Quarterback prospect Ryan Tannehill will hold his personal Pro Day Thursday on Texas A&M’s school campus. Per CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler, Tannehill will run the forty-yard dash, which should allay most remaining concerns about his January foot surgery.

Tannehill had the fifth metatarsal in his foot surgically repaired in late January.

Tannehill’s workout will begin at 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The forty will be the only timing-based drill in which Tannehill participates. He’ll then throw for “approximately 30-45 minutes,” per Brugler. Texas A&M wide receiver Jeff Fuller and running back Cyrus Gray will catch passes during Tannehill’s throwing session.

Though opinions of Tannehill are mixed around the draftnik community, Tannehill is highly regarded by NFL evaluators for his ideal size, strong arm, plus athleticism, and elite ability to make throws on the run.

He could go as high as No. 4 to the Browns, and isn’t expected to get past the Dolphins at No. 8. New Fins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was Tannehill’s head coach in college.

  1. Hey 4th qtr troll?

    Do you really think he’ll be there when the Browns use there 3rd round pick?

  2. I would care more about his pocket presence, decision making, maturity, and arm strength. In their prime, how fast were Unitas, Marino, Montana, Manning, etc?

  3. I’ve never seen this guy before, but that HAS to be the most unflattering picture of him. Looks like Howdy Doody.

  4. I know this isn’t really relatable towards the story but Tannehill looks oh so very cute in that cowboy hat 🙂

    He won’t be but he should be. Respected scouts say he can throw well on the run but can’t read safties. In fact he made no improvement his entire last year in college.

    Point being, Tannehill is nothing special and shouldn’t be a 1st round pick.

  6. Watched him play since middle school. Played football for his dad, He was the high school coach here in West Texas. I think he will be a solid QB in the NFL. Not a star but not a bust either. Time will tell

  7. Tannehill is a projection. Limited snaps under center but has all the physical tools to be successful.

    As for reading coverages in the NFL, he’ll have a ways to go. As most young QBs do. That you can teach.

    Six four, strong arm, 220 lbs. and great athleticism is not teachable.

    That’s why he’ll go top 10, whether his resume dictates it or not…
    That’s

  8. Sherman and Tannehill did so well together that Sherman got fired. So now together in the NFL he’s going to be a franchise qb? Seriously? He’s a major project. 3rd rounder at best. He’s Kordell Stuart.

  9. He’s a bigger faster stronger Aaron Rodgers at this point…..

    He’ll sit a year to develop in Cleveland or Miami, but with the right coaching this kid can be awesome.

  10. Best place for him in the NFL would be to go to a team that has a QB do he could sit and learn for two years ala Rodgers.

    Unfortunately for him that’s prolly not gonna happen get ready for David Carr 2.0. Kid will go to a bad team forced to start right away and will kill any development and confidence on him.

  11. “Unfortunately for him that’s prolly not gonna happen get ready for David Carr 2.0. Kid will go to a bad team forced to start right away and will kill any development and confidence on him.

    Don’t you mean Mark Sanchez?

  12. Love how the media has everyone convinced the Browns will so much as think of this guy for half a second at pick 4. They won’t even pick him if they trade down.

    Pick # 22 is a different story…..
