Tua Tagovailoa hoping Miami Dolphins find way to add one of his former Alabama teammates
Tua Tagovailoa likely isn’t in a position to tell the Dolphins who to pick in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, but if Miami is interested in the quarterback’s thoughts on a prospect from Alabama, he’d certainly welcome the addition of a familiar face to South Beach.
During a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, Tagovailoa was asked to share his thoughts on Najee Harris’ game.
“He’s a well-rounded running back,” Tagovailoa said of Harris. “He’s very athletic, he can run, he can make a man miss, he can power through someone and he’s very good in the pass game. Not just with catching, but I think what’s overshadowed by his success with the catches and the runs, is blocking.”
Miami’s starting quarterback then went a step further when discussing Harris.
“He’s going to be a fun guy to watch this upcoming season,” Tagovailoa added. “I’m excited to see him. Hopefully we’re on the same team, who knows.”
The Dolphins definitely have the draft capital to make this happen as Miami owns the No. 3 and No. 18 selections in the 2021 NFL Draft.
There’s plenty of speculation that Miami will be interested in DeVonta Smith with the No. 3 pick and if Harris is around at No. 18, we could see the Dolphins use both first-round selections to help Tua out in 2021.
