Well the point of posting the numbers was to show that people are really preparing to overdraft Tannehill. So I compared him to the #4 QB in this year's draft, Brandon Weeden. Since we're comparing the two, and they both played in the same conference, there's no issue with the numbers not being comparable.
And I know the majority of football fans are anti-statistics. But talent evaluation in the NFL is a hard thing, and stats are certainly one of the things you consider when evaluating talent. And Tannehill's statistical performance is really poor. Sure he has the prototypical size, but that's about it IMO.
I'm not a great talent evaluator (who really is?). But I'm really good with numbers, so I stick with what I'm good at. And when you evaluate the numbers side of Tannehill's game, its not close. I'll let you guys argue whether he has the right mechanics or whatever, but when you examine his production it comes up short.
