Andrew Abramson of the PalmBeachPost.com reports that during a team-held conference call with fans, a couple different players on the defense had some good things to say about the second year quarterback.
Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe says he has “seen a lot of good decisions” from Tannehill and defensive back Jimmy Wilson adds that he has seen a big improvement in him.
Seeing Tannehill as a rookie and seeing him now, I think he’s increased his skill level leaps and bounds,” Wilson said. “I think he’s more comfortable with the game. He’s bigger, faster, stronger and everybody knows he has a NFL arm. … We’ve thrown a lot at him early and he seems to be handling it real well.
Normally I would say this isn’t a big deal. And in fact I still will. However what I do find interesting is the consistent praise Tannehill is receiving. Tannehill is definitely trending upward in players to watch this coming season. For his sake, I hope he can live up to the hype he’s been receiving this off season.
