Ryan Tannehill’s wife was the hit of Thursday’s NFL draft (PHOTOS)

Shutdown Corner

Over at ThePostGame, we put together a list of the best and worst dressed from the first round of the 2012 NFL draft. Former Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill, now of the Miami Dolphins, was on the latter list, with an ensemble we said was out of Men's Wearhouse.  What we didn't see was that Tannehill's look improved when he had his newlywed wife on his arm.

Below, the No. 8 pick is pictured with his newlywed wife, Lauren Tannehill. As she has many of the qualities admired by the superficial male, Mrs. Tannehill became a trending topic in the hours after the draft.

Darren Rovell (who else?) reports that Lauren was the subject of 800 tweets in 10 minutes after she appeared on TV.

The couple were engaged last May and wed in Mexico this January, just after the end of Ryan's college football season. They met at Texas A&M.

Lauren works in a cardiology clinic and is an aspiring model. She was excited about her husband's draft destination, tweeting, "FINS ARE UP!!!!! Miami here we come!!!!!!," before the pick.
