Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill was the obvious selection, considering his connection to offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, his head coach in college last year. And, yes, owner Stephen Ross wanted to draft a quarterback, considering the franchise hasn't had one since Danny Marino. But unlike Luck and RG3, Tannehill isn't ready to start in the NFL, because just two years ago he was a college receiver. He's had just 19 starts under center for the Aggies. Matt Moore, who was 6-3 down the stretch last season, still figures to start opening day. ... Stanford offensive tackle Jonathan Martin may have better feet than Jake Long. ... Two players from "The U" have a chance. Defensive end Olivier Vernon can be a rush specialist while running back Lamar Miller is a home-run threat just like Reggie Bush; just an odd pick because he's not an inside runner and not a very good receiver. Also, Miller is coming off shoulder surgery. Grade: C
