Tua Tagovailoa. 5. player. 59. . Quarterback. Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins hold three first round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, and they could certainly use all three of them. While some mock draft have them trading up to get the quarterback of their choice, based on draft order, they may be able to do so by sitting at No. 5 overall, though they would then run the risk of someone trading up over them.

Still, the Dolphins should be able to get their franchise quarterback this April, and a few names stand above the rest in terms of the hierarchy heading into draft season. Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, and Tua Tagovailoa are the top three names at the position group this year, and with the fifth pick, Tua lands in South Beach.

Tagovailoa came into the draft season with a ton of question marks, as nobody really knew how his hip would eventually heal. As we inch closer to the draft, all of his medicals have come out in a positive light, which means he should be ticketed for the top-five this April.

Los Angeles Chargers. Justin Herbert. 6. player. 13. . Quarterback

The Los Angeles Chargers will have a new starting quarterback for the first time in a long time in 2020, as the team has decided to move on from Philip Rivers. Likely ticketed to the Hall of Fame, Rivers put up incredible statistics during his time as the starter for the Chargers, but he never led them to the big one.

Sitting at No. 6 overall, the Los Angeles Chargers would love to see Justin Herbert’s name still available, as they are looking for a new franchise quarterback. With Rivers gone, the team has to figure out who is going to be their guy moving forward, and based on what we saw at the Combine, Herbert is someone who could come in and start right away.

The Chargers like what they have in Tyrod Taylor, as he is a steady veteran who can come in and win games if need be. By keeping Taylor and drafting Herbert, the Chargers would have a solid 1-2 at the top of the depth chart at quarterback, giving the young signal-caller a veteran he can lean on in meetings, and during games.
