“But it’s been hard not to notice how good Tannehill has looked throwing the football, showing good velocity, accuracy and anticipation. Coach Joe Philbin said Monday that Tannehill had 53 ‘competitive snaps’ in Sunday’s practice, and completed over 40 of those throws. Monday’s practice wasn’t as smooth, especially early on, but Tannehill is showing well so far,” reported Volin.
“I thought he threw the ball very well on Sunday,” Philbin said, per Volin. “Today, we missed a couple plays early. We had a couple opportunities for big plays we didn’t convert on. For a rookie quarterback, I think he’s doing very well.”
It’ll be interesting to see how Tannehill looks when he goes up against the first-team defense and once he gets into a preseason game.
