Marino Thinks Taking Tannehill Could Be Worth It

[1]If the Dolphins decide to take Ryan Tannehill with the eighth pick in Thursday’s draft, it will only be the third time in franchise history they’ve selected a quarterback in the first round.

According to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, the Dolphins’┬álast first-round quarterback, Dan Marino, thinks that the team should seriously consider taking Tannehill if they have a positive conviction about him. [2]

“If they feel good about Tannehill and he’s there at eight, it’s worth taking a little bit of a stretch to take a quarterback,” Marino told Rosenthal. “If it’s a guy that you think can be your future quarterback for a long time, then you got to take him. If not, you have to preach to the fans that you have to be patient.”

Passing on Tannehill, even with reason, may make it extremely difficult to maintain patience. But Marino sees winning as a cure to some recent dissatisfaction.

“They are still the franchise everybody is looking at,” Marino said. “It’s the Miami Dolphins, man. It’s a great brand, a great franchise. It’s been very successful for many years in the league. No matter what is, though, fans want to win. That’s what it’s all about.”
