Todd McShay: I Would Be Shocked If Tannehill Isn’t Better Than Weeden

Updated: April 20, 2012

There seems to be a growing push back on rising QB Ryan Tannehill. He likely will be a top 10 pick due to need, but many people are doubting exactly if he should be selected so high.

Today on Mike and Mike, expert Todd McShay was asked why was Tannehill so highly rated in comparison to QB Brandon Weeden. McShay commented that Weeden’s completion percentage and touchdown to interception ratio was the worst in the draft under pressure.

He finished his commentary off with the prophetic statement:

I Would Be Shocked If Tannehill Isn’t Better Than Weeden

What do you think?

    Todd, please give your explantion as to why Blaine Gabbert has performed so poorly thus far in the NFL. You listed him as being “more NFL ready” and more “polished” than Cam Newton. His performance his first year was obviously not close to what Newton was able to accomplish. One of the positive qualities about Gabbert you stated coming out of college was that unlike some of the other QBs, he didn’t hold on to the ball (he attempted a pass or threw it away). In his rookie year in the NFL, other analyst, including former players attributed that same behavior to Gabbert being afraid to stand in the pocket and take a hit. Do you think your evaluation of that particular skill was inaccurate? I hope the young man plays better in his sophomore season.
