Numerous reports and predictions Thursday have confidently claimed that the Dolphins will use the eighth pick in the draft to reunite quarterback Ryan Tannehill with offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, Tannehill’s college coach. At the same time, there is a realistic — and reportedly growing — possibility that the Dolphins will never make the eighth pick.
Citing multiple club sources, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins have spoken to “at least three teams about moving back.” Salguero states that this “definitely has a chance” of happening.
If the Dolphins aren’t sold on Tannehill as a franchise quarterback, they should pass on him. Adding picks to move out of the eighth spot would make that decision even more appealing.
It just might not go over too well with the owner.
