COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill could be a top 10 pick in next month's NFL draft, less than two years after lining up as a receiver for the Aggies.
Tannehill returned to his old high school position of quarterback halfway through the 2010 season and caught the attention of NFL scouts despite starting just 19 games behind center for Texas A&M.
On Thursday, he worked out for representatives of 22 NFL teams, including Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, Miami coach Joe Philbin and Cleveland offensive coordinator Brad Childress. It was their first offseason look at Tannehill after he missed the combine while recovering from foot surgery.
Tannehill ran a 40-yard dash and threw about 70 passes, putting on a performance that Carroll says he should be pleased with.
