The Miami Dolphins reportedly favor Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert over Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 NFL draft.

According to ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., the "tide has turned" with regard to how the Dolphins view the quarterbacks in the draft and there is "a lot of buzz" about Miami preferring Herbert to Tagovailoa.

Kiper noted that Herbert may be the target for Miami with the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, but he also cautioned that the information he has heard could potentially be a smokescreen to throw other teams off the Dolphins' scent.
