The market for rookie quarterbacks is shaping up to be what many thought this year as Matt Barkley and Landry Jones have made the decision to return to school. One of the winners from this figured to be Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill who could have jumped into the first-round of the draft.
Tannehill’s agent, Pat Dye, told ESPN.com that he broke broke a fifth metatarsal in his foot and the injury could require surgery to repair it. Dye adds that surgery may cost him the opportunity to participate in this years scouting combine but added the should be ready to throw for scouts in March which should give him to be ready for April’s draft.
This could open the door for a number of other quarterback prospects to showcase their abilities in the time being.
