Is Tannehill the Redskins’ right pick at No. 6?

“He can throw — just to me,” Fleming cracked. “He’s a competitor, really. Maybe that’s the biggest thing about him. Especially [in 2010] when we lost — he threw two interceptions to me, but he kept fighting and scratching.”

Whether the Redskins decide to target Tannehill could depend on their willingness to endure his growing pains. After winning only 11 games the past two seasons, that might be a tough sell. The urgency for a winning product promises to be extremely high in coach Mike Shanahan’s third year.

Tannehill just wants the chance to prove himself.

“I did only start [19] games at quarterback,” he said. “It’s a question that deservedly needs an answer.”
