Mailbag: Miami’s QB Plans?

Q: If Miami doesn’t land Peyton Manning, what do you think the chances are that they would trade up in order to take Ryan Tannehill?  - Bobby, Riverview

A: At this point, it doesn’t look like Manning will end up in Miami.  That being the case, I still think it’s more likely that they make a serious play for free agent QB Matt Flynn, rather than trading up for Tannehlll.  It’s been rumored that the Browns might take Tannehill at #4, so if the Dolphins wanted to move up and get him, it seems they’d have to move up to that pick to do it, and I just don’t see them giving up what it would take to move up that high.  If there was a scenario in which Miami would end up with Tannehill, it would have to be with the #9 pick that they already own.  If he’s somebody they’re really high on, it’s possible they could try to move up a couple spots to grab him, but I think that’s unlikely.
