One post earlier compared Tannehill's rise to Jamarcus Russel's.
But honestly Ryan's rise reminds me more of Cam Newton's last year. Had Luck and RG3 not been in this draft class I think we would be seeing similar arguments of whether Tannehill was #1 worthy. Yes i know Cam won a championship but he also had a lot of off the field baggage and no competition in his Qb class. Tannehill is the opposite. Played on a less-talented team but supposed to have great leadership skills. Tannehill might be more raw of a prospect, but I think the (throwing) skill set is there. Both Tannehill and Cam started off as low first round status and shot up. With all the hype surrounding RG3 and Luck early it didnt give Tannehill a shot at the media attention until now.
Just a thought, what do y'all think?
