The name Ryan Tannehill has been coming up quite a bit recently. The Kansas City Chiefs attended the Texas A&M pro day where they watched Tannehill throw (and I'm sure he threw it well since there are very few receivers that look bad throwing to uncovered receivers). The Chiefs are also working Tannehill out later this week.

With all this quarterback talk, I ran a poll yesterday asking the question:

Would you approve of the move to draft Tannehill at No. 11?

The results: 32 percent approved of the move, 52 percent did not approve and 15 percent said they'd be fine with it only if their first option was gone.

That's more approvals than I would've guessed. I got the vibe from the fan base that Tannehill definitely should not be the pick but there's a decent amount of people who wouldn't mind that move.

The thing about picking quarterbacks, at least for me, is that I think you need to be 100 percent committed to that quarterback. By that I mean, I think you need to really, really love the particular quarterback you're drafting instead of saying, 'We really need to draft a quarterback so we'll take this guy.'

It's also important to remember that Tannehill falling to No. 11 would be considered a longshot at this point. Cleveland at No. 4 or Miami at No. 8 make sense.
