Tank for Tua? Miami Dolphins reportedly already eyeing 2020 QB draft class
In the NFL, you need a quarterback to be able to compete for Super Bowl titles. At the moment, superstars like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and Patrick Mahomes are still alive in the NFL Playoffs.
The Miami Dolphins know they need to rebuild, and it may require moving on from current QB Ryan Tannehill. However, the Dolphins are in no rush, apparently.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are looking ahead to the 2020 NFL Draft, where they could end up drafting a top quarterback like Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa:
Even before they hire Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores as their next head coach, the Dolphins already are thinking about rebuilding and trying to land one of the trumpeted quarterbacks from the class of 2020, which includes Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon’s Justin Herbert, league sources told ESPN.
Of course, the 2019 NFL Draft hasn’t happened yet, so the Dolphins could choose a quarterback this year, but Schefter’s report indicates that might not be the case.
Will Tagovailoa reunite with former teammate Minkah Fitzpatrick in 2020? Only time will tell, but the Dolphins will certainly be doing their homework on him.
