Coach Romeo Crennel has pointed to Cassel's lack of "consistency" as a concern, and the Star suggests Kansas City as a possible destination for Ryan Tannehill if he gets by the Browns and Dolphins in the top ten. In Cassel's last 11 starts, including the 2010 playoffs, he's completed only 180-of-320 passes (56.2 percent) for 1,898 yards (5.93 YPA) with ten touchdown passes and 16 turnovers.

IMO, Tannehill doesn't last past 8.
Philbin, Ireland and crew were all in attendence at pro-day. Supposedly Sherman is on record for believing in Tannehill.
Beyond that, we haven't heard a peep from anyone in Miami. Which means they don't want to tip their hand. To say yes or no would probably trigger someone to react irrationally and trade past them. Above all else, I believe they understand they have more rebuilding to do than just QB, which is why they haven't traded up (means giving up a next years #1).
The question is valid as to whether Osweiler or Weeden sneak into the 1st.
That answer really depends how secure KC is in Cassel. If they're sincere about wanting a #2 "purely for competition", then they'll wait til the 2nd and get Weeden/Osweiler. Otherwise, drafting a QB in the 1st round pretty much makes you obligated to start him, at some point. Either this year, or the next year. You don't go around drafting QBs in the 1st to throw them away. If KC really wants Tannehill, they'll draft-day trade up with STL or JAX.
Otherwise Weeden would probably go to the Browns in the #36 pick or possibly even the #22. With Osweiler to KC in the 2nd. I think the Browns interest in Tannehill is chaff, it's not Holmgren's style to draft a 1st round QB.
