Welcome to your daily Board Meeting. Each evening we’ll update you on the day’s hottest topics on the HornsNation forum.

1. Tannehill equals JaMarcus Russell: Comparing someone to JaMarcus Russell in NFL draft circles is like using a dirty word.

Now, to be clear, Billick was referencing how Tannehill has shot up draft boards based on potential and none of the off-the-field issues that plagued Russell. Still, it’s a tough comparison.

Todd McShay was also a guest and did not disagree with putting too much emphasis on potential. However, McShay did point out some of the intangible things about Tannehill that could be a benefit to him. Tannehill is a coach’s son and he played wide receiver while simultaneously meeting with the QBs.
