Last week, Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who will likely hear his name called in the first round of the NFL Draft this Thursday, made the rounds over at ESPN. He appeared on nearly every show the company has, including the radio shows. Our friends over at SportsRadioInterviews.com posted the transcript from one of those appearances, with Tannehill speaking with Ryan Ruocco and Robin Lindberg of ESPN Radio New York.

Many draft experts expect the Miami Dolphins to select Tannehill with the eighth pick Thursday night, but when asked where he would like to play if given the choice, Tannehill replied:

"I have no idea. There's so many good organizations out there and I'm just blessed to have the opportunity to play for one of them."

He was also asked about his inexperience playing the quarterback position, having only played 19 games behind center for the Aggies, after spending time at wide receiver as the congested depth chart ahead of him cleared. Tannehill replied:

"Yeah I've only started 19 games as a QB so I'm still learning the quarterback position and I have a high ceiling. I've only started 19 games so these guys that have played 40's, high 30's in games in their career they're basically a year or two years ahead of me so I think that proved myself in those 19 games but I have a high ceiling and I'm going to continue to get better."
