Ryan Tannehill gives the Dolphins hope !



This year after a 13 year long wait for Dolphins fans, the Phins finally used a first round pick on a QB. The Dolphins drafted Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill, reuniting him with his former head coach Mike Sherman.

The waiting is over, the Dolphins now have a guy they can help grow and mold into a franchise QB.  

While Tannehill has his upside, he also has his issues, he is not a perfect prospect but he has a chance to really shine. Tannehill offers a potential solution to a 13 year QB search.  Tannehill is most known for his strong athletic skill set and ability to throw on the run.

Tannehill brings excitement to Miami as him and his super hot girlfriend now can call South Florida home.

Dolphins HOF QB Dan Marion wasted no time welcoming Tannehill with a tweet,

Tannehill met with the media after being drafted indicating his excitement to be a Dolphin and his desire to compete for the starting job. Tannehill also mentioned he wants to wear his college number 17.

Douche bag GM Jeff Ireland, had this to say on his new QB, “I didn’t take him with the eighth pick in the draft to be a backup quarterback. I picked him to be a starting quarterback in this league at some point, to have an impact in this league, to help us win games and championships.”

Jeff Ireland said on  wouldn’t make any expectations or predictions on Ryan Tannehill  then later said Tannehill checks out A+ in the tangible area. Jeff Ireland noted that Stephen Ross put no pressure on him to take Tannehill but was very excited about Ryan.

There is still great value on the board for the 2nd round for the Dolphins. A list of available players include, WR’s Randle, Hill..TE Colby Fleener…OLB Upshaw…OT Cordy Glenn as well as many others.
