Miami Dolphins Draft Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa

The recipient of an MBA in finance from Baruch College, Darren Stumberger resides in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, where he spends time instructing 1,500 youth baseball players in the tri-state area. In addition to his interest in baseball, Darren Stumberger enjoys following the National Football League's (NFL) Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins added 11 players to their roster in the 2020 NFL Draft, which concluded in April of 2020. The highlight of the team’s draft haul was University of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovaiola, who was selected with the fifth overall pick. The 217-pound quarterback led Alabama to its sixth national championship as a freshman in January 2018. He came into that game at halftime, replacing starter Jalen Hurts, and helped Alabama overcome a 13-0 deficit.

Tagovaiola recorded 3,966 passing yards and 43 touchdowns the following season. Although he was limited to nine games in 2019, he still managed to accumulate 2,840 passing yards and 33 touchdowns. He also registered a career-best 71.4 passing completion percentage.

Miami had two other first-round picks, which it used to select University of Southern California offensive tackle Austin Jackson and Auburn cornerback Noah Igbinoghene. The team also drafted Alabama defensive tackle Raekwon Davis, Georgia guard Soloman Kindley, and North Carolina defensive end Jason Strowbridge, among other players.
