The site is contracted by at least 13 NFL franchises and is a big proponent of advanced analytics in addition to their bread and butter — providing objective grades to every player after every game.

They regard Tannehill as the 10th best QB in the NFL leading into the 2015 season:

“Is he among the best five quarterbacks in the league yet? No, but Ryan Tannehill has quietly put himself in the top 10 with his play over the past two seasons. He was the sixth-most accurate QB in the league last year. Our sixth-highest graded passer in 2013, he dropped slightly to 10th this past season, but looks poised for a big year with the Dolphins and an improved supporting cast.”
