Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is 'making every throw'

I can't wait until preseason games arrive, and we get a chance to see if a certain player's performance backs up all of the glowing reviews he has gotten during the offseason. Until then, we are left to report on what teammates say about each other and draw something from it somehow. The latest example: Dolphins, wide receiver Brian Hartline @brianhartline on his starting quarterback, Ryan Tannehill @ryantannehill1.
"[Ryan] has taken a huge step," Hartline said. "I couldn't ask for more. He's making every throw. He's got great touch. His deep ball is awesome."

Fantasy Analysis:

Tannehill posted the seventh-highest completion percentage on passes of 20 yards or longer last year, so I have faith that his deep ball is indeed awesome. That will help in his relationship with Mike Wallace. Along with Wallace, Tannehill has some other new toys to play with -- Brandon Gibson and Dustin Keller. It's an impressive receiving corps, but we really won't know if Tannehill has made that huge step until at least August, and I remain skeptical, mostly because I don't think Miami will turn Tannehill loose and put the offense on his shoulders. His opportunities will probably remain relatively limited. But Tannehill is a decent pick if you choose to wait on a QB2.
