Even though Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay and his staff will likely decide to take Stanford’s Andrew Luck with the first overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, he indicated on Twitter that he believes that Ryan Tannehill of Texas A&M is a “hidden gem.”
Tannehill is a hidden gem in this draft,a quiet secret who was always sneaking up to #3..you want him,you better talk to Zigi The Biggie!

What’s also interesting about Irsay’s tweet is that it seems like he’s telling teams they will have to trade up to the third pick, in order to get Tannehill. So in essence he’s helping the Vikings who’ve made it clear that they want to trade out of the third spot.
All we can do now is wait until draft day to see if any teams are willing to trade up for Tannehill.
