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. That’s exactly what former NFL coach Brian Billick did this morning on Mike and Mike in the Morning. 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.
