For the last couple of year’s we have heard teams such as the Miami Dolphins use phrases like “Tank for Tua”. The closer we get to the draft, the more we hear different stories about where he is going. Below are the reasons this chatter is unnecessary and Tua Tagovailoa should be a Top 5 pick.

For years, teams have had the luxury of multiple draft picks, plenty of time to decide what to do with said draft picks, and even trade those picks for players–I mean we see it every year. With those picks, teams are usually trying to find one or two players that can drastically change their team, often with at least one of those players being a quarterback.

The same goes for the 2020 NFL Draft, as there are a handful of teams that will be looking to secure their franchise quarterback, all while trying to shape up the rest of their team as well. Take the Cincinnati Bengals, the Miami Dolphins, and even more teams that are all in the same boat. They need a franchise quarterback for sure, but they also need pretty much the entire roster. Now, I am no general manager, head coach, or even remotely close. I do, however, know when things are being blown out of proportion.

Ever since the NFL Draft was created, making the right choices, such as the right draft pick, can hold someone’s job, change their entire life, and even prolong success. Just ask Nick Saban about Drew Brees in 2006. Saban was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins at the time, and reportedly wanted to sign Drew Brees, but the front office would not do that because of an apparent shoulder injury, which scared them away.

It’s now 2020 and Brees is a Super Bowl Champion, and one of the best quarterbacks in our lifetime. The following are reasons are why a team like the Miami Dolphins, should not pass on Tua Tagovailoa, based on a “hunch”.

People are overlooking the fact that Tagovailoa had a great college career, besides obvious injuries. If the Dolphins pass on him, they will regret their choices a second, and hard time.
