Expect Big Things From Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa had a rough start to his career, and he went through some major growing pains adjusting to the NFL. Many questioned if Tagovailoa was an NFL-level QB or if he was merely a product of the system at the University of Alabama. Tagovailoa did have the best collection of wideouts in college football history during his last season at Alabama, including a core of Jerry Jeudy, Henry Rugs III, Jalen Waddle, and 2020 Heisman winner DeVonta Smith, all of whom would become first-round picks over the subsequent two years.

The Miami Dolphins quarterback position was a revolving door all last season, which hurt Tagovailoa’s growth, as he was constantly looking over his shoulder. Tagovailoa was very hesitant throwing the ball all season long, averaging a mere 6.3 yards per attempt. Tagovailoa is reminiscent of Tim Tebow, especially since both are lefties. That being said, Tagovailoa benefitted from a full offseason, and a repaired receiving core will enrich his development even further.

Reuniting With Jallen Waddle

In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Jaylen Waddle, a perfect fit in Miami, sixth overall. Waddle brings much-needed dynamic speed to the Dolphin offense. They also brought in a wide receiver Will Fuller V, who is known for his deep route ability. With this offense, Tagvailoa should be able to launch bombs like he did at Alabama. In short, I expect a much improved season from Tua Tagovailoa in 2021, and he will demonstrate why he was the fifth overall pick in 2020.
