Tannehill, of course, was part of what may end up being one of the better quarterback draft classes in history. and though he missed out on the playoffs in his first year, his solid rookie season has helped him pick up his fair share of supporters, including ESPN’s Mike Ditka.
At a dinner with legendary Dolphins head coach Don Shula, Ditka, the Hall of Fame tight end and coach, told the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley  he’s been impressed with Tannehill.
“I love the quarterback,” Ditka said. “When you look at rookie quarterbacks, I think he’s right with anybody.”
As for Shula, who still keeps an eye on his former franchise, he likes what is being done to supplement the foundation that Joe Philbin built in 2012.
“They’re doing the right things,” Shula told Beasley. “They’re trying to improve their team. Those moves, you don’t know until you line up and play for keeps. … That’s what the Dolphins are trying to do, get better and be one of the elite teams.”
