I've gotta say, so far our Windy City Gridiron members have really been bringing the NFL Draft knowledge to our Mock Draft. Earlier today T.Moore took Michael Floyd for the Jags, much to the dismay of Bears fans. Next up is boondock_saint812 making the choice for the Miami Dolphins.
And with the 8th pick in the WCG mock draft, the Miami Dolphins select...
Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
boondock_saint812: They missed out on Manning. They missed out on (or passed on) Matt Flynn. The Dolphins have been searching for a franchise QB for a decade and cannot go another offseason without adding a top talent at the spot. Tannehill has a great upside, though he's raw and comes with a big risk of busting. However, the drop between Tannehill and the remaining QB's on the board is steep and none look like potential franchise guys. Either David Garrard or Matt Moore can hold the fort for a year or two if Tannehill needs a lot of time to develop. Tannehill will join his old Texas A&M head coach, Mike Sherman, who's now the offensive coordinator with MIami. His familiarity with the scheme and coach would instantly accelerate his learning curve.
