2012 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Sep-05-2012 by Chris Weeks
The Dolphins didn't take Ryan Tannehill with the 8th overall pick in the 2012 draft to pay him big bucks while watching from the sideline. Tannehill does have a leg up on incumbant Matt Moore when it comes to Mike Sherman's playbook, but that doesn't mean he's ready to start. Tannehill has to learn how to read NFL defenses and gain some appreciation for the speed of the game at this level. Tannehill may not be Miami's starting quarterback week one, but it wouldn't surprise us to see him starting at some point this season. To begin the season Tannehill will likely be third on the depth chart behind Garrard and Moore. If you're in a deep league or keeper league then selecting Tannehill in the late rounds might be a good idea. This could give you a leg up on the competition next season. If you happen to be in a larger league then late round picks can sometimes be useful for future seasons.
Update (8/22): Matt Moore did nothing to impress the Dolphins coaching staff while Tannehill did everything to impress, which in turn has resulted in Ryan being named the Dolphins' starter week 1. In a dynasty league Ryan may hold some long term value, but in standard redraft leagues he holds little value. With just 19 games under center in his college career, transitioning to the big league won't be easy for him.
