Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants the team to pick QB Ryan Tannehill with the No. 8 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, ProFootballTalk.com reported Sunday, citing a league source.
However, a source with the Dolphins later contested the veracity of that report in an e-mail to the Miami Herald, telling the newspaper that Ross will be leaving the decision up to GM Jeff Ireland.
That Ross, and not Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, is angling for Tannehill would be surprising, given that Sherman coached Tannehill at Texas A&M.
