2012 NFL Draft: Ryan Tannehill Highlights Texas A&M Aggies Draft Class

It's no secret that Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are going to be drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall by the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins in the 2012 NFL Draft. What we still don't know, however, is where the third quarterback selected in this year's draft will go. Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill has seen his stock rise over the past month, so much so that he could very well be a top five pick.

In fact, in SB Nation's latest mock draft, Tannehill is going fourth overall to the Cleveland Browns -- ending the Colt McCoy era in the process. Opinions do seem to vary on Tannehill, though. CBS Sports rates Tannehill as the eighth best prospect in this year's draft, while the National Football Post sees Tannehill as the seventeenth best player in the draft.

Regardless of how highly rated Tannehill is, he figures to go fairly early on Thursday night to any QB-starved franchise -- and there are a lot of them.

Tannehill isn't the only Aggie that will be drafted over this weekend. Running back Cyrus Gray looks like he'll be a mid-round draft pick, while wide receiver Jeff Fuller, cornerbacks Coryell Judie, and Terrance Frederick and Lionel Smith all have chances to be late-round draft choices.
