Texas A&M University held their annual Pro Day today, featuring all of their draft eligible players in the next step toward the NFL Draft. Of course, the primary focus at the workout was quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is expected to be the third quarterback selected next month.
Tannehille threw 68 passes today, completing 65 of them, with two of the three incomplete passes being drops. He ran a 4.62 40-yard dash, after missing the NFL Combine with a stress fracture in his foot.
After the workout, Tannehill stated, "I felt good. The foot felt great, moving in the pocket, escaping; the ball was coming out good, and the guys were making plays for me. It was a good day."
Tannehill worked out in front of 22 of the NFL's 32 teams, with the emphasis on the Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns, and Seattle Seahawks all being present. The Dolphins were represented by general manager Jeff Ireland, player personnel director Brian Gaine, and head coach Joe Philbin. Meanwhile the Browns had offensive coordinator Brad Childress and quarterbacks coach Mark Whipple and the Seahawks were represented by general manager John Schneider, head coach Pete Carroll, and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
The Browns have a private workout at Texas A&M and a visit to Cleveland scheduled with Tannehill. The Dolphins took the quarterback out to dinner Thursday night.
