FOR JIM IRSAY, TANNEHILL IS THE HIDDEN GEM OF THE DRAFT
Thu, 19 Apr 2012 02:27 AM EDT

Jim Irsay has his pick of quarterbacks Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III with his Indianapolis Colts owning the NFL draft’s No. 1 overall selection. He’s also however, using his social account to try to play matchmaker for quarterback prospect Ryan Tannehill.

The Colts owner called Tannehill the “hidden gem” of the draft and advised that if a team wants to choose him, it will have to talk trade with the Minnesota Vikings, who are the owners of the No. 3 pick. Basketball spreads

“Tannehill is a hidden gem in this draft, a quiet secret who was continually sneaking up to 3..you want him, you better talk to Zigi The Biggie!,” Irsay wrote.

Irsay constantly voices his viewpoints on his social account, even using the social media platform to announce Indianapolis’ staff moves during the season. “Zigi the Biggie” is a reference to Vikings owner Zygi Wilf. Basketball betting lines

The Cleveland Browns at No. 4 and the Miami Dolphins at No. 8 are 2 teams that would draft Tannehill if they get the opportunity. The Browns were involved in trade speaks with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 2 pick and then was outbid by the Washington Redskins. Miami had failed courtships of quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Matt Flynn and Alex Smith this offseason as it tries to find a franchise quarterback.

The Kansas City Chiefs at No. 11 and Seattle Seahawks at No. 12 also have been recounted at one point to have attraction in Tannehill.

Dolphins’ offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, who was fired as Texas A&M’s coach in December after 4 seasons, coached Tannehill with the Aggies.

The Vikings presumably won’t draft a quarterback with the 3rd pick after taking Christian Ponder in the 1st round of last year’s draft. But if the Dolphins or another team covet Tannehill and fear the Browns might take him at No. 4, they might be future trade partners with Minnesota for its pick.

Tannehill changed from receiver to quarterback, which he played in school, halfway thru the 2010 season and caught the attention of NFL scouts despite starting just 19 games behind center for the Aggies.

At his pro day last month, Tannehill worked out for delegates of 22 NFL teams, including Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin and Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress. It was their 1st offseason look at Tannehill after he missed the combine while recovering from foot surgical treatment.

At his pro day last month, Tannehill showed off his flexibility, precision and arm strength. While he wasn’t throwing against a defense, he had only 3 incompletion (he missed one long pass and had 2 drops) on 68 passes thrown. He as well ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds.

Tannehill was moved to receiver as a freshman after losing the quarterback competition. He had 1,453 yards receiving and 9 touchdowns in his 1st 2 seasons combined at A&M and had 143 yards receiving as a junior before returning to quarterback.

Tannehill went 12-7 in 1½ seasons at the position for the Aggies. He threw for 1,638 yards and thirteen touchdowns in 2010 and had 3,744 yards passing with twenty-nine touchdowns last season.
