Lance Zierlein mentions that sacks have affected Falk's accuracy on passes downfield. This is a little concerning as we have never had great pass protection no matter who we put in front of the quarterback. Tannehill, one of the most hit quarterbacks, has actually gotten much better with his deep passes, so, this shows the mental toughness that we love about Tannehill, but Falk is a quarterback with a lot of experience at the position. It should be very interesting to see if we draft Falk. We are going to draft a quarterback but we do not know where. Maybe the Dolphins aren't too worried about Tannehill to draft a quarterback, because, as we see from this picture from this past weekend that he is alive and well.

Falk, 6-4, was an All-Pac 10 selection in 2015, led Washington State to a Sun Bowl victory over the University of Miami that year and holds the conference’s records for career passing attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards, and passing touchdowns.
Falk threw for 14,481 yards with 119 touchdowns and 39 interceptions, with a 68.3 completion percentage and a 28-15 record.
Last season, he threw for 3,593 yards, 30 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, with a 66.9 completion percentage.
He was sacked 125 times in his career but impressed with his toughness, playing the final 10 weeks last season with a broken left hand (non-throwing hand).
NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein said of Falk: “Tall, rhythm passer with good natural accuracy and years of quality production who is much more comfortable working the perimeter and against man coverage. Falk’s lack of protection and average mobility has lead to a tremendous amount of sacks and quarterback hits that may have taken a toll on him. While he can throw with touch and accuracy, his deep and intermediate accuracy dipped this season. There are some holes that could be hard to correct in Falk’s game and “average starter” may be his ceiling.”
