2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Tannehill is a converted quarterback after playing wide receiver for the first half of his career. It should be noted that Tannehill wasn't just some reserve receiver, he was the team's leading receiver the two seasons prior to becoming a quarterback.

Like you might imagine for a wide receiver turned quarterback, Tannehill has a very lean frame that will need to be bulked up to take punishment in the NFL. And while he is particularly mobile and fleet-footed when he decides to tuck and run, he certainly needs a lot of work with his mechanics and footwork.

Scouts can see the potential given his height, quick release and solid accuracy on short to intermediate, but his arm strength is lacking. On deep balls, there just isn't much accuracy and he seems to be aiming or guiding his long throws, rather than just letting it rip. His stock is on the rise since he is leading the Texas A&M Aggies to plenty of wins, but when the tape comes on, reality sets in. You've got an inexperienced quarterback with a ton of potential who will need patience and coaching in order to be a full-fledged NFL quarterback.

Recent reports have Tannehill likely becoming a Top 10 selection. The Browns may be interested at No. 4 and he likely won't make it past the Miami Dolphins' No. 8 pick.
