Social media reacts to Tua Tagovailoa being drafted by Miami Dolphins
After months of rumors surrounding Tua Tagovailoa’s NFL Draft fate, things were finally settled on Thursday. The former Alabama standout is now a Miami Dolphin.
Social media was quick to react to the news, with the overwhelming approval of the Dolphins’ decision to take Tagovailoa at No. 5 overall:
Love the Tua pick. Dolphins didn’t overthink it. Smart.

Tanking for Tua worked!
Tua is a Dolphin.

For sure, Tua will be way better than Justin Herbert.

Chris Grier went for it. Grier took a smart, calculated risk on a potentially transcendent talent. Kudos to Grier. No matter how this plays out, Tua was the absolute correct decision. And I think this will work out well.

Accuracy & leadership were the keys for Dolphins when it came to Tua. The Dolphins felt like they had a very diligent medical process — which essentially allowed them to follow their instincts on him. Beautiful job by Miami keeping it all nicely sealed up. They played it perfect.

Dude I’m so happy for Tua. I was so nervous he was gonna slip and be sitting there with everyone in their Leis looking miserable and I was gonna be so sad for him and his family.

Tua Tagovailoa is the best quarterback in the AFC East

Broncos should be doing handstands and chuckling aloud. It's Herbert in the AFC West rather than Tua.

There were, of course, some jokes to be made also:
