Dolphins rumors: Tua Tagovailoa ‘felt weird’ in meeting with Miami
For months, the Miami Dolphins have been regarded as a team that could be looking to select Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 NFL Draft. However, it appears that the Dolphins botched their first interaction with the Alabama quarterback. During the NFL Combine, Tagovailoa ‘felt weird’ in his meeting with Miami.
Throughout the week of the NFL Combine, players tend to meet with teams to see who is interested in them. Safid Deen of the Sun-Sentinel reported that Tagovailoa was taken aback in his meeting with the Dolphins.
Heading into the draft, the Dolphins possess the No. 5 pick in the first round. Despite holding the fifth-overall pick, Miami could look to trade up in the draft to select a quarterback.
After Joe Burrow, Tagovailoa is considered to be the second-best quarterback in this year’s draft. Provided that, Miami is a viable landing spot for the left-handed prospect.
Not too long ago, Chris Grier — the GM of the Dolphins — mentioned that it was a possibility that Miami could move up in this year’s draft. The reason for that stems from the fact that the Dolphins possess five picks in the first two rounds.
Throughout the meetings with teams, prospects typically get a good idea of who is interested in them. This time around, the Dolphins seemed to have sent mixed signals to Tagovailoa. If these reports are true, it’s safe to say the Dolphins will want to schedule another session with Tagovailoa as soon as possible.
