Ryan Tannehill Looks Good Early At Dolphins Training Camp

Ryan Tannehill is looking surprisingly solid early on at Miami Dolphins training camp. I say surprisingly because he signed his rookie contract a little late and missed the initial portion of camp. But that doesn't seem to be bothering as the Palm Beach Post reports that Tannehill has been impressive in his first two days of camp.

But it's been hard not to notice how good Tannehill has looked throwing the football, showing good velocity, accuracy and anticipation. Coach Joe Philbin said Monday that Tannehill had 53 "competitive snaps" in Sunday's practice, and completed over 40 of those throws. Monday's practice wasn't as smooth, especially early on, but Tannehill is showing well so far.

Granted, he's also working against the second and third team defense, but this is a promising start for Tannehill. The concern with him, a former receiver, was the learning curve needed to succeed at quarterback. He seems to be showing early on that it's not too big for him to learn.

As Philbin said, he's doing "very well" for a rookie quarterback. He's competing with David Garrard and Matt Moore for the starting job but the two veterans appear to have a leg up on him for the time being.
