Projected first-round pick Ryan Tannehill will hold his much anticipated workout on Thursday at the McFerrin Indoor Facility at Texas A&M.
Tannehill, who missed the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine because of a broken foot that required surgery, hasn't been able to get on the field for scouts and evaluators since the Aggies' bowl win over Northwestern. Tannehill broke the fifth metatarsal in a passing drill in January, but is close to 100 percent healthy.
Tannehill is expected to run a 40-yard dash, but not participate in any other agility drills, which is understandable considering his recent foot injury. He will then throw for "approximately 30-45 minutes," according to a Texas A&M spokesman. Tannehill's former teammates, running back Cyrus Gray and wide receiver Jeff Fuller, are expected to participate in the passing session.
Tannehill is widely considered the third-ranked quarterback prospect in this draft behind Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin III.
After Luck and Griffin come off the board with the first two picks, Tannehill is expected to be drafted in the early first round, perhaps as early as No. 4 to the Cleveland Browns. The Miami Dolphins, where former Aggies head coach Mike Sherman is the offensive coordinator, are also expected to push for the strong-armed signal caller.
With another high-profile pro day also occurring on Thursday (Alabama), the attendance at Tannehill's workout could be telling as to which teams are strongly interested in him. Although teams also have the opportunity to bring him to their facilities for a private workout, much like the Browns plan on doing, according to multiple reports.
