Miami Dolphins Make Surprising NFL Draft Decision

The Miami Dolphins made a surprising NFL Draft decision this week.

Up to this point, Miami has been linked to Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for the better part of the past year.

Unfortunately, the Crimson Tide star went down with a season-ending hip injury in 2019 and it remains unclear how well his recovery is going.

Tagovailoa’s team is saying all the right things, but because nobody will see him participate in a live game between now and the NFL Draft, any franchise that selects him will be taking a big risk.

This week, a report emerged that Miami was taking a serious look at Oregon star Justin Herbert.

Herbert had a tremendous showing at Saturday’s Senior Bowl, and according to Matt Miller of the Bleacher Report, the Dolphins have “done more work” on the Ducks passer than any other team.

Herbert went nine-of-thirteen for 83 yards and score on Saturday, while simultaneously running for 19 yards.

The Dolphins have the number five selection in this year’s draft.

Heisman winning LSU star Joe Burrow will likely be off the board to the Cincinnati Bengals with the No. 1 overall pick.

From there, nobody is projected to take a quarterback until the Dolphins.

Will they ultimately take Herbert or Tagovailoa?

We’ll find out once and for all in April.
