Dolphins OC Sherman touts Tannehill

New Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman might be a little bit biased, but he is high on his former Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is available in this year's draft.

Sherman labels Tannehill, who also spent some time as a very productive receiver before moving back to quarterback for the Aggies, as a player who makes others around him better, to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

It might be hard to place Tannehill as a first-rounder in some draft evaluators' eyes, as he certain falls into that group of quarterbacks a notch below Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. But then again, last year many draftniks had Jake Locker and Christian Ponder as second-rounders in last year's draft. Both went in the first 12 picks as the Titans' selection of Locker at eight began a run on quarterbacks early.

Sherman has high praise for Tannehill, but in the story he definitely goes overboard when he draws comparisons from his old Green Bay days, trotting out names like Favre and Rodgers.

“Like all good quarterbacks he had great poise. Very confident in any system, west coast or not,” Sherman said. “Any quarterback has to be confident in his own skin and believe in himself. They always say a great quarterback makes those around him better. I thought [Brett] Favre did that. I think Aaron Rodgers does that. I think Tannehill does that as well.”

Time well tell on that one.
