    An early look at some of the top quarterback prospects for the 2012 NFL draft.


    Ryan Tannehill: Texas A&M (6-4, 220)
    In my mind he’s the most intriguing senior quarterback prospect in the class. Tannehill only has seven starts under his belt as a QB. However, he’s decisive, accurate and a gifted athlete inside/outside the pocket. He displays a real understanding of the game and I expect him to take off this year as a QB prospect.

    Ryan Lindley: San Diego State (6-3, 218)
    A tall, lean quarterback prospect with a great arm, but will need to prove he can still be efficient with a new head coach and two new receivers to throw to come September. However, the tools are there.

    Andrew Luck is the best he's ever seen? I mean, Luck is impressive, there is no doubt but he's not the best I've ever seen. That's a bit of a stretch IMO but whatever.

    Makes me wonder how long Wes is going back. I doubt he was scouting when Aikman came out. I doubt he was doing this when Peyton came out.

    Luck might be the best I remember seeing, too. Including Peyton, for sure; I don't remember anyone considering Peyton a HoF-caliber QB when he came out. Carson Palmer, frankly, came out with more fanfare. Prior to Palmer, it was Aikman. Then Elway before him.

    Mike Vick was in there with a lot of fanfare, too, I guess, though he's sort of a different player from those other guys.

    It will be interesting to see how Tannehill does. He played at wide receiver during his freshman and sophomore seasons before moving to QB last season.

    I agree Dooms. I really like Tannehill. The guy just gets it done.
