Dolphins could trade up in NFL Draft for Tua Tagovailoa
The Miami Dolphins have an endless amount of options in the 2020 NFL Draft. Cameron Wolfe at ESPN believes the team could consider moving up in the draft. While predicting what the Dolphins could do this offseason, Wolfe senses the possibility that Miami could trade up in the NFL Draft for Tua Tagovailoa.
With a little over two months between now and the NFL Draft, the Dolphins have time to assess all of their options. Heading into April’s draft, Miami has three first-round picks and is projected to have 14 selections altogether.
Given the amount of draft capital they have, a trade could be in the works for the Dolphins. Even Chris Grier admits that Miami has ‘more than enough’ ammo to trade up if need be. Grier is the general manager of the Dolphins and will be in charge of what Miami does in the draft.
Last offseason, the Dolphins addressed the quarterback position by signing Ryan Fitzpatrick and trading for Josh Rosen. Fitzpatrick is returning for his 16th season in 2020, but he’s nearing the end of his career. On the other hand, Rosen hasn’t shown enough to feel comfortable with him leading an offense.
As a result, Tagovailoa is a likely candidate that is on Miami’s radar in the upcoming draft. Despite Tagovailoa’s hip injury, he is considered to be the second-best quarterback available in the draft.
Most people expected that the Dolphins would be the worst team in the NFL in 2019. Instead, they surprisingly won five games and were unable to secure the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Due to the team overachieving, they could have to surrender some draft picks to get the quarterback they want.
