After spending the bulk of the last three months training at IMG Academy and missing the NFL Combine due to a foot injury, former Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill was expected top put on a show for coaches and scouts yesterdayat his Pro Day in College Station.
He didn't disappoint.
Executing a throwing plan put together by Chris Weinke, Director of the IMG Academy football program, Tannehill impressed scouts with his accuracy, velocity and mobility. Weinke also served as the on-field coach for Tannehill during the event.
There is a possibility that quarterbacks could be selected with the first three picks in next month's NFL draft afterRyan Tannehill's successful pro day at Texas A&M on Thursday afternoon.
The quarterback completed 65-of-68 passes and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds, slightly faster than the scouting combine performance of Stanford'sAndrew Luck (4.67) but slower thanRobert Griffin III (4.41), who are projected to go 1-2 in the draft.
...(Said Chris Weinke) "If there were any questions out there, Ryan answered them... People walked away pretty impressed with his ability. It was fun to watch.''
