QB Alabama

Despite having a former first-round pick at quarterback (Josh Rosen), the Miami Dolphins will be eyeing a new signal-caller in next year’s draft. And the top quarterback on most draft boards is Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Since taking over as QB1 in the second half of the 2018 National Championship Game, Tagovailoa has become a household name, dominating his SEC opponents.

This pick is almost a guarantee, but one of the biggest obstacles in the way of the Dolphins drafting Tagovailoa is that he still has a year of eligibility left. Now, most quarterbacks of his pedigree typically declare for the NFL Draft early, but with the type of program Alabama has, do not be surprised if he decides to stay another year.

Tagovailoa is at a good size for quarterback standing at 6’1′ and weighing 218 pounds and his numbers have been insane, throwing for 71 touchdowns and just eight interceptions in his career, all while completing over 70 percent of his throws. It’s “Tua Time” in South Beach and Phins Fans should be excited.
