Seahawks believe Tannehill will be gone by pick 12

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider indicated that they would consider taking Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the 12th overall pick, but they don’t believe he’ll be there.

“He’s a really good player and he’s got a great upside,” Schneider said about Tannehill per the News Tribune. “We would definitely consider him (at No. 12). Just because we’ve done these things, the guys know – it’s no disrespect to Tarvaris, or Matt or Josh (Portis) at all.

“The guys know at some point we wanted to get this thing rolling where we would be able to get a younger quarterback in, and kind of getting them going, whether it’s in the first round or second round or however it comes.”

“It’s fun to talk about, but I mean he’s not going to be there,” Schneider said. “You know, I think he’s going to get drafted pretty high.”

Even though Tannehill is expected to go in the top ten,  I wouldn’t surprise me if ends up also falling to the Seahawks.

    Even if he falls to 12( which i think he will) i dont think he’s the long term q.b. for Sea or any team really, he’s a lot of hype and if past drafts have taught us anything, its that the media has and probably will sensationalize a player and a team will end up using a 1st rd draft pick on a guy that has no business coming off the board in rd 1. remember jamarcus? every draft analyst fell in love with the dude cause he could throw a ball 65 yards from his seat, he was out of shape his whole career, and have u ever read or heard any interview with him? probably the dumbest pro ive ever heard. but espn nfln, foxsprts… all raved about him as the draft got closer, i believe that media hype has f-ed alot of teams. dont fall for ryan @ 12 help the d or, o line or a lb. but no last minute hype players plz! keep up the good work

    I agree completely. He was mediocre in college, and can’t imagine how all of a sudden he will become some great NFL Quarterback. If his size and upside didn’t help him get it done before, I don’t see how it will help him against the best players in the world!
