Born: 7/27/1988 Lubbock , TX

College: Texas A&M

Experience: 7th season

High School: Big Spring HS [TX]









Draft 2012

Pick No.8

Selected By: Miami Dolphins

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 8 (8)

Pick Analysis: Tannehill is a dynamic athlete at quarterback, which could stem from his two-plus years at receiver with the Aggies before becoming their starting signal-caller. In his early starts at quarterback, Tannehill was more of a gunslinger than a refined thrower, but he now has morphed into an efficient pocket passer. Tannehill is a also fierce competitor with the overall tools to be a first-round selection and eventual starter in the NFL.
