The Miami Dolphins get their quarterback without having to trade up for him either. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been the object of Dolphins’ fans affection for the last year. They didn’t have to fully “tank for Tua” to get him either. This is the best-case scenario for Miami who still has two first-round picks to support and surround Tua with the top-end talent to turn the Dolphins into a potential contender sooner than anyone would have imagined at this time last year.
The Los Angeles Chargers may be picking too low in the first round to get the quarterback of their dreams, but in this scenario with more players eligible to choose from, they get their guy.
Justin Fields was a Heisman finalist in his first year at Ohio State where he showed incredible play-making ability with his arm and his feet and great decision-making with only one interception in the regular season. With Philip Rivers gone and Tyrod Taylor in place as the starter, Fields may be given the benefit of having a buffer year before assuming the starting job in L.A.
