In the days leading up to the NFL Draft, the Dolphins became convinced that Tua Tagovailoa was their quarterback target after getting a late green light from doctors, general manager Chris Grier told Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer on Sunday.

Breer, in his weekly MMQB column, reports that “only a handful of people knew” what the Dolphins’ draft plan was, and that the Dolphins settled on taking Tagovailoa at No. 5 (if available) after hearing the final opinion of the team’s medical staff.

The team believes, despite Tagovailoa’s injury history, that his hip dislocation was “a freak thing.”
