Poll of the Day: How high will Ryan Tannehill be drafted?
The top two quarterbacks in the 2012 NFL Draft will be Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin III and there is little doubt where those two will be drafted next month.
In other words, the two quarterbacks should be the first two picks in the draft.
Where the next quarterback will be drafted is subject to more debate.
Most mock drafts, as does mine, have the third quarterback off the board as being Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. After leading the Aggies in receiving for two seasons, Tannehill switched back to quarterback in the middle of his junior season and he has the prototypical tools that teams look for in a franchise quarterback -- strong arm, size, athleticism, intelligence, intangibles, etc. -- even though he may lack experience.
In my mock draft, I have the Browns trading up to No. 2 to select RG3 and the Redskins taking Tannehill at No. 6.
Depending on what happens in free agency with Peyton Manning, Matt Flynn, etc., the Dolphins (at No. 8) and the Seahawks (at No. 12) could be in the market for Tannehill's services of gets out of the top six.
