2012 NFL Draft: Ryan Tannehill Reportedly Heading To Miami Dolphins At No. 8

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the teams reportedly in the mix for quarterback Ryan Tannehill. There was endless amounts of drama in recent weeks concerning where Tannehill could go and whether the Chiefs or Eagles or other teams might make a play for him. Apparently he’s heading to the Miami Dolphins like most predicted all along.

Word is officially getting out on Twitter from Peter King and others that the team is choosing Tannehill with the No. 8 pick overall. That means that if the Chiefs want to take a quarterback in the draft, it is not going to come in the first round.

Tannehill has been called the most overrated choice in the draft, but the Dolphins have had the worst offseason in the NFL this year. The team needs an infusion of potential at quarterback and he will be reunited with his college coach in Mike Sherman, who is the new Dolphins offensive coordinator.

For the Chiefs, it looks like it’s coming down to David DeCastro or Luke Kuechly.
