Mel Kiper Talks Tua Tagovailoa, 2020 NFL Draft
The 2020 NFL Draft came and went this past week. Afterward, Mel Kiper Jr. appeared on ESPN and gave his two cents on everything that had transpired.
“I said from the get go, I would sit Tua,” Kiper said.
“He would not take a snap in a regular-season game. Let his body heal, medically redshirt him. People say, ‘well anybody can get hurt.’ This Miami line is being rebuilt, restricted.
“Austin Jackson, the first-rounder is a developmental left tackle. I love Robert Hunt and I think they’ve got some guys up front that can do it, but develop that line before you put Tua out there.”
Will the Dolphins take his advice to heart? Time will tell.
