The Dolphins need help essentially everywhere on the roster, and their recent moves over the course of 2019 have all but revealed their tanking for not only the No. 1 overall pick, but as many picks in Rounds 1 and 2 as possible.
But the first overall selection comes with a lot of responsibility. And there’s nothing wrong with finding a quarterback capable of holding down the position for the next 10 years.
In this case, the big name is Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa is arguably the top prospect in this year’s NFL Draft class anyway, meaning the Dolphins land the best overall player and someone around whom the franchise can build from the ground up. Sure, this will push another former first-round quarterback, Josh Rosen, out of the fray. But the Dolphins could choose to push Rosen elsewhere, or at least let the embattled starter hold the line until Miami builds an adequate enough roster to support Tagovailoa.
Winless through four weeks, having the chance to grab Tagovailoa is probably the top thing Miami fans can look forward to until April of next year.
