RYAN TANNEHILL SHINES IN DOLPHINS’ FIRST-ROUND PICK
Tue, 31 Jul 2012 02:30 AM EDT

On his first training camp snap, Ryan Tannehill rolled to his right and fired a strike to WR Roberto Wallace along the sideline.

It was actually the start of an impressive practice for the Miami Dolphins’ 1st-round pick, who missed the 1st a couple of days of camp because he stayed unsigned.

“I thought he’d be a little bit rusty today, but I believed he was pretty much on task on virtually everything he did,” said Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, Tannehill’s college coach at Texas AM. “He did not appear to miss a beat.”

Tannehill spent the past few days, including his 24th birthday, in Bradenton working out at the IMG Madden Football Academy.

“I was hoping I could get it done on my birthday,” Tannehill asserted. “That would’ve been a great birthday surprise. Unfortunately, it had to happen a day later. At the day’s end, this is a business and now I’ve got the business aspect out of it for the next few years and I am ready to head out to play football.”

Tannehill’s 1st practice included 2 interceptions, but both occurred on passes that went off the hands of receivers. Most of his throws were on target, including a deep sideline pass to RB Lamar Miller in a one-on-one drill.

“I didn’t think it was too bad,” Tannehill expounded. “I definitely have some things to work on, being better with my feet, stepping up in the pocket, a little faster on my drops. But I believed it was a good starting point.”

The 1st QB drafted in the 1st round by the Dolphins since Dan Marino in 1983, Tannehill is expected to vie for the starting job.

His competition is returning starter Matt Moore and veteran offseason acquisition David Garrard.

Moore and Garrard split repetitions with the 1st-team offense in the 1st 3 days of training camp, while Tannehill worked with the 2nd group Sunday. Football odds

“He got more reps than anybody,” Sherman said. “Eventually we are going to work him in with the 1st group, once he’s caught up to snuff, which I think will be sooner rather than later because he seems like he’s right on task right now.”

Tannehill’s familiarity with Sherman will give the rookie an edge in knowing the offense.

“I definitely do not feel like I fell behind as far as fundamentals, throwing the ball, and conditioning or physically,” Tannehill said.

“You definitely need to be here. You want to see the reps, be with your squad, and get the timing down. You can not duplicate that some other place. You’ve got to be here for that. But so far as physically, I don’t feel a bit like I missed anything.

“I didn’t want to hold out. It isn’t really my style. I want to be here. I want to compete and, hence it was a long a couple of days just sitting around waiting. Yes, I was competing, but there was still some down time where you’re just sitting there and drumming your foot like, ‘Let’s just get this thing done.’ At the day’s close, I feel just like we worked a fair deal out for both parts.”
