Ryan Tannehill’s wife Lauren will be his real contribution to the Dolphins (Pictures)
The Miami Dolphins went ahead and reached for quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the eighth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. About the only redeeming factor for the pick is that Tannehill has an attractive wife.
Lauren Tannehill attended the draft with her husband and even seemed to tip the pick via her Twitter account:
Lauren became well known among college football fans last year when ESPN showed her on TV during the Texas-Texas A&M game. Ryan was amused by all the attention she received.
“No, I think it’s funny. I think it’s great whenever people tweet her or say anything about it. It’s pretty funny,” Tannehill said. “She went into a restaurant a couple of days later and the waiter said, ‘I saw you on TV. You’re Ryan’s girlfriend.’ I thought the whole thing was great.”
According to Player Wives, the two met at Texas A&M in 2009, became engaged last May, and wed in January. Lauren graduated from Texas A&M in 2010 with a major in Communications and minor in Psychology. She’s also a model.
