NFL scouts will get the opportunity to scout Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill Pro Day one week after the only two quarterbacks currently rated by NFLDraftScout.com ahead of him -- Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III -- are scheduled to hold their own.
NFL.com's Gil Brandt reports that Tannehill will have an on-campus workout March 29.
It will be the first time scouts have seen Tannehill since he guided the Aggies to a Meineke Bowl win over Northwestern December 31st. Tannehill suffered a foot injury while preparing for the Senior Bowl at IMG Football Academy in Bradenton, Florida. It was discovered that he had broken the fifth metatarsal. The injury and subsequent surgery in which a screw was inserted cost Tannehill the opportunity to compete in the Senior Bowl, next week's Scouting Combine or Texas A&M's initial Pro Day March 7.
While Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden and Michigan State's Kirk Cousins boosted their stock with strong efforts at the Senior Bowl, Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill remains the most talented senior quarterback in the land and is likely to be the first one drafted.
Some believe Tannehill's obvious talent will be enough to land him in the first round. Others, including myself, are having a harder time envisioning a quarterback with only 19 collegiate starts at the position as being a first-round pick. While I don't include him in my mock draft, I do believe he's among the top 32 talents in this draft.
