Tannehill is one of the few players on this list that would have had a chance to make it at multiple positions.
After all, he led the Aggies in receptions and yards as a wide receiver in 2008 and again paced A&M in receptions in 2009. In fact, entering his junior season of 2010, Tannehill ranked seventh on the Texas A&M career receiving yards chart and was poised to make a huge leap up the list with two years remaining.
Instead, Tannehill asked to focus more at quarterback — he served as the backup as well as the team's top receiver — in the spring of 2010, a move that paid off big for Aggie fans. Texas A&M sat at 3-3 after the first six games, and head coach Mike Sherman's seat was starting to get hot. Tannehill replaced Jerrod Johnson, a preseason All-Big 12 pick, in the team's next game against Kansas, bringing a steadying hand to a team that had dropped games due to turnovers.
The rest, as they say, is history. Tannehill completed 65 percent of his throws for a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 13-6 as the Aggies won their next six games, finishing the regular season 9-3, with a share of the Big 12 South title and a spot in the Cotton Bowl. Under Tannehill's guidance, the Aggies bested both Oklahoma and Nebraska, the teams that represented the South and North, respectively, in the Big 12 title game.
Now, entering his senior season, the job is all Tannehill's. Though he showcased the requisite athleticism while playing receiver, he typically stayed within the pocket and preferred to operate with his arm, rather than his legs. In a league that's stacked with quarterbacks, Tannehill might be the forgotten man. But opposing teams certainly shouldn't sleep on him, wherever he plays.
