The Miami Dolphins came into the 2012 NFL Draft looking for a quarterback after striking out on Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn in free agency. With the No. 8 overall pick, the Dolphins finally got their new signal caller in Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

If a team lacks a franchise quarterback, they have to draft one. But is Tannehill that guy? Time will tell, but he certainly has all of the physical ability to make it happen. He is very inexperienced, but he will get to join his former coach Mike Sherman down in Miami, so there's that.
