Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has coveted a franchise star behind center, and now he has taken a QB with a top-10 pick in the draft.
The obvious next question: Can Tannehill be that franchise star? A former wide receiver with the Aggies, Tannehill made just made 19 starts at Texas A&M at quarterback. He shot up draft boards based on his workouts, but he's far from a sure thing.
Now Tannehill gets a soft landing in Miami, where he will be paired with offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, the same man who developed him in college.
One thing's for sure: Several hundred fans in attendance at Radio City Music Hall believe the Curse of Dan Marino will live on. An "overrated" chant rang out as Tannehill was greeted by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
