It has been a subject of much speculation for weeks, that being whether the Miami Dolphins would pick QB Ryan Tannehill with their No. 1 pick, the 8th overall. For the Steelers, it’s a good thing the Dolphins picked Tannehill, for no other reason than the Steelers are happy every time a quarterback is selected ahead of their 24th pick in the first round. The reason for that is that it pushes all of the other players down another slot, because the Steelers won’t pick a quarterback on the first round.
Maybe the Steelers get really lucky and a team above them reaches for Stanford TE Coby Fleener. That would serve the same purpose — to push the other guys down another slot.
