NFL Mock Draft 2020: Dolphins pass on Tua Tagovailoa for Jordan Love as five QBs go in top 20 picks
Pete Prisco has the Dolphins trading up for Tua in his Mock Draft 3.0
In my Mock 2.0, I had the Miami Dolphinsto get Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
In Mock 3.0, I have the Dolphins passing on him with the fifth pick to take Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. That might seem crazy, and it probably is, but there is buzz around the league that the Dolphins are intrigued with Love and the injury concerns with Tagovailoa might drive them away.
Tagavailoa was said to have received great medical reports this week about his surgically repaired hip, but there are still hurdles left for him to get past in the next four weeks.
So, for now, I have Miami taking Love, with the Los Angeles Chargers taking Tagovailoa with the next pick at No. 6. I have five quarterbacks going in this first round, with Oregon's Justin Herbert going seventh to the Carolina Panthers and Washington's Jacob Eason going 19th the Las Vegas Raiders.
This is the last pre-free agency mock for me, so most of it will be rendered meaningless in a lot of ways. So take if for what it's worth, but watching Tagovailoa's next few weeks will decide a lot of things as it relates to this draft.
Round 1 - Pick 4
From Los Angeles Rams
Round 1 - Pick 20
Round 1 - Pick 25
Taylor is a raw, big tackle who could step in on the left side and allow the team to move Riley Reiff to guard.
