With Matt Barkley and Landry Jones staying in school, the 2012 NFL draft stock of Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill has been rising. Unfortunately, things have reportedly taken a wrong turn. Tony Pauline of SI.com reports Tannehill suffered a "significant foot injury" while training last week. SB Nation's Mocking The Draft calls this potentially a "monumental" blow to his draft stock.
He's expected to miss the Senior Bowl, according to the report. Obviously this is a very, very bad time for a player to suffer an injury. College football players entering the draft are training right now to prepare for the postseason workouts like the NFL Combine at the end of February and individual workouts with teams leading up to April's draft.
Tannehill finished the 2011 college football season with 29 touchdown passes to 15 interceptions. He completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 3,744 yards.
If Tannehill's injury is indeed significant then this will be another knock against the quarterback class of 2012. It's looking fairly weak right now -- except at the top with Andrew Luck and (potentially) Robert Griffin III -- and Tannehill was supposed to be one of the top guys available after the first two.
