Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill will finally work out for NFL scouts on Thursday.
The much anticipated pro day of Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill is coming up on Thursday. Tannehill broke his foot in January so he missed a couple of opportunities to work out for NFL scouts, including the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine. Because of that, this pro day is highly anticipated.
CBSSports.com reports that Tannehill will only run the 40-yard dash and throw.
Tannehill is expected to run a 40-yard dash, but not participate in any other agility drills, which is understandable considering his recent foot injury. He will then throw for "approximately 30-45 minutes," according to a Texas A&M spokesman. Tannehill's former teammates, running back Cyrus Gray and wide receiver Jeff Fuller, are expected to participate in the passing session.
Tannehill is widely expected to be the third quarterback off the board behind Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III in April's NFL draft. He could go as high as fourth to the Cleveland Browns. His former college coach, Mike Sherman, is now with the Miami Dolphins, who pick eighth.
