Ryan Tannehill No. 26 in QB rankings
By James Walker
ESPN.com senior writer John Clayton provided his annual list of quarterback rankings Thursday, and Miami Dolphins fans may not be happy with the results.
Out of 32 projected starting quarterbacks, Miami starter Ryan Tannehill came in at No. 26. Tannehill is rated behind other questionable quarterbacks such as Christian Ponder of the Minnesota Vikings and Josh Freeman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Here is what Clayton had to say about Tannehill:
- “The additions of Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson should improve his numbers on third down, and Tannehill should be better getting the ball downfield. Losing Dustin Keller at tight end, though, will hurt. Teams need a 50-catch tight end to make the playoffs. His season-ending knee injury creates a void.”
Tannehill threw for 3,294 yards, 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.
