The Miami Dolphins were connected to Tua Tagovailoa for months leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft. Recently, reports have indicated that Justin Herbert might now be their target with the No. 5 overall pick. Now with the NFL Draft drawing closer, the Dolphins could potentially draft an even more surprising player to be their quarterback of the future.
According to The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, the Dolphins have done extensive work on the 2020 quarterback class even beyond Tagovailoa, Herbert and Joe Burrow. Among them, Miami has closely evaluated former Washington quarterback Jacob Eason and the team is scheduling a video conference with him in the near future.
If Miami’s top three quarterbacks are gone when they’re on the clock with the fifth selection, the front office is prepared to draft a top player at another position and take a quarterback later.
