Miami not for sure on Tua. Justin Herbert also a major option
quote:

Firstly, the club’s view of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is not of a slam-dunk pick near the top the draft. At least not yet. The Dolphins will go through the process of vetting Tagovailoa at the Combine and beyond, as other teams will, before deciding if he’s worth the No. 5 overall selection, which Miami holds in the first round of the April draft. Secondly, the club has an increasingly positive view of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert


If Tua were to slide, makes a trade up for the Saints a lot easier. Moving from 24 to 15 is a lot easier than 24 to 5

Pretty risky drafting a QB that people question his commitment and drive for the game that high. Guess we’ll see how he interviews. Herbert that is.

This is called "Please don't jump us and take Tua." Miami is taking him barring any bad news on that injury

Panthers and Chargers both draft top 10 and either one likely will take a QB. Tua isn’t making it out of the top 10.

I’m not sold on Herbert being a starting nfl qb. That dude looks like Trubisky 2.0

Not sold on how good he'll be but he ain't Trubisky. Mitch only started 13 games in college because he couldn't beat out a guy who's backing up in the XFL.

re: Miami not for sure on Tua. Justin Herbert also a major option
Justin Herbert is one of those QBs that will do well in the right situation. His arm strength is unreal - best in the draft. He's also very athletic, and by all accounts, is a great teammate and leader.

He stuck around for his last year in college to win the Pac-12 and a Rose Bowl for his hometown Ducks, even when there were talks last year he could go in the top-5 of the draft.

While I certainly never blame players for leaving early (you go, Tua), his maturity and extra year of playing well on the collegiate level only adds to his skillset.

I really hope that no one in the NFC South ends up with the top-3 QBs on the board. They are all great players.

I'm also very wary of Bruce Arians getting a hold of one of these guys... even though Jameis threw 30 picks, he still led the league in passing, tossed 30 TDs, and played quite well in spurts all while apparently being blind.

Tua and Burrow are no-doubt great players. I think this draft looks a lot like 2004 with Manning, Rivers, and Big Ben, with Herbert playing the role of Roethlisberger.

If I were a betting man, I think you'll see Joe go to Cincy, Tua to Miami, and Herbert going to San Diego, or in a surprise move, to Washington.

The Saints need more rookie contracts on the team and not less.

I would rather the Saints trade down and pick up picks.

I would like to see a respectable compensatory pick as well.

I want the upper echelon to allow the rest of us a chance to live in a world with clean food, air, and water.

But, I am more likely to spot a unicorn running down Airline Highway.

Tannehill was really good last year.

I’ve heard the leadership part is the concern. Not that he’s a bad egg, just that he’s an introvert and it’s hard to be an introvert at the QB position. More or less, he’s the shy quite version of Philip Rivers.

I doubt Miami passes on Tua if they stay put. But if someone trades up to grab him before Miami’s pick, Miami might draft Herbert. Between the three QBs, there will be a ton of lies told about who is interested in whom this year.

Other than his physical measurables, what jumps Hebert into the high 3 or 4 QBs? I confess I only watched one game, but nothing I could see why he would be graded that high.

The only sure thing in this draft is Tua being a bust
