Give me an accurate passer who's willing to learn to make the reads.
You can't teach accuracy.
I say he pretty accurate
today what was he 25-35 for 240 + yards
Ryan Tannehill and Why I'm Not Sold
Some scouts, both NFL and internet, feel Tannehill is a 1st round quarterback prospect, maybe the best senior in this class. I've heard their points, considered their opinions (at least the people who's evaluations I trust), and re-watched film. And based on that and the Oklahoma State game this past weekend, my opinion is still firm: Ryan Tannehill is not a franchise quarterback in my eyes.
He played at times this past weekend, no question.. He's confident in his feet and can make plays outside the pocket. Maybe the most impressive asset of his game is his pocket poise. Even this past weekend on a few plays, he read the pressure, moved within the pocket, kept his eyes down field, re-set his feet, and delivered a throw on the money. His development in that area, in my opinion, combined with his arm at least gets him in the door for the NFL. He anticipates his receivers routes well and isn't afraid to making a throw before his receiver is out of his break.
But Tannehill overall is very predictable in what he wants to do. He stares down his target too obviously and struggles to check down effectively. He forces passes to his early target and doesn't scan the field all that well pre-snap. He doesn't have great touch on deep passes, and more or less lays up a jump pass down the field instead of put the ball accurately. His overall arm is good, not great. While he can put velocity behind short passes, as he goes deeper, he struggles to keep good velocity and put balls into tight windows.
Overall, I'm more sold on the complete skill set of Kirk Cousins of Michigan State and like Ryan Lindley (San Diego State), BJ Coleman (Chattanooga), Nick Foles (Arizona), and Dominique Davis (East Carolina) as fellow solid senior quarterbacks. Tannehill is still in the Top 4 round mix in my mind, but no 2nd round talent
