Summary

2015 has the potential to be a big year for Ryan Tannehill - for good or ill. While he has improved statistically every year, there is still some refinement required for his game to really be as good as he seems to have the potential to make it. Tannehill has all the tools to create a huge season. The Dolphins went out and signed Greg Jennings and traded for Kenny Stills - two big-time veteran receivers who should open up the field for Tannehill. They also acquired Jordan Cameron at tight end, and if he stays healthy he could be another big weapon in the offense. Jarvis Landry looks like a great player one year in, and they added DeVante Parker in the 2015 NFL Draft. The receiver corps is loaded. The backfield is also very talented and should be able to keep defenses honest. Lamar Miller enters his contract year playing very well and rookie Jay Ajayi could be a great addition if he is healthy. As said above though, Tannehill still has two things which are an issue. First, his deep ball is shaky at best. The longer the throw, the less reliable the accuracy, and his timing can be less than spectacular. Tannehill also was sacked a ton last year, and while some of that was an offensive line racked with injury, some of it was due to Tannehill's propensity for holding the ball too long. He has to read and react quicker and get rid of the ball sooner. If he can do that, he will continue to work towards being one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL. The Dolphins are committed - they just signed him to a 6-year, $96 million contract extension. Only $21.5 million is guaranteed and the contract is really a 2-3 year contract so he still needs to prove himself, but it takes some of the pressure off. Right now, Tannehill is a solid quarterback and someone worth a look as a backup or committee choice, and likely available in the late first half of drafts. (May 19)
