9. Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins
Tannehill's rookie season was a grind at times, but strong performances against top defenses belonging to Seattle, Arizona and Cincinnati showed a window into the future. The Dolphins have moved aggressively to upgrade the talent around Tannehill, increasing his chances for success. Personnel evaluators I polled felt strongly about clearing a spot for Tannehill on this list even though more established players such as Eli Manning, Drew Brees and possibly even Brady or Peyton Manning could still be a factor in 2016.
