Front Office People Say QB Ryan Tannehill Not Ready To Be A Starter

Dan Pompei of the National Football Post spoke with some NFL scouts and executives regarding Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill, and it seems like they’re not convinced that he’s ready be a starter in the NFL at this point.

“Can he come in and play at a championship level?” said one NFL GM. “When you start talking about a top five pick, that’s what you are trying to say. I don’t see that in him. He is still young in the quarterback position in terms of the reps and starts.”

Tannehill was initially seen as an early second-round prospect when the draft process first began months ago, but has vaulted into the the top half of the first-round and could very well end up being a Top 10 pick.

The people that Pompei spoke with seem to think he would be best served by sitting a little while before being thrust into the starting role. While this is probably an unlikely scenario, he would be a great for the Eagles considering that they could work with him for a few years before turning over their offense to him a later point in time.
