ESPN’s Todd McShay, with some reluctance, gave instant analysis on some of his standout draft classes, ranking the Dolphins’ haul fifth.
“I’m a big believer that Ryan Tannehill is going to wind up being a quarterback that’s going to start in this league and be very good,” McShay said on SportsCenter.
Mel Kiper will be there, draft notes in hand, to break it all down.
Kiper, who has been covering the draft and evaluating players for over 30 years, recently participated in a conference call to discuss this year’s hot topics.
Even though he’s a seasoned veteran, Kiper still must adjust his evaluating techniques to counter trends that surface in the league.
Tannehill, a wide receiver for his first two seasons with the Aggies, has established himself as the “next-best” quarterback prospect behind Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. His ascent, due in part to the increasing demand for a quarterback as free agency winds down, has put the spotlight on one of the most unique quarterback prospects in years.
