For the past year, the preachings have been about Tanking for Tua and getting the first overall pick. Well, that didn’t happen as the Dolphins overachieved and now sit with the #5 pick. The team can still wind up with Tua Tagovailoa, but recent rumors have teams a little weary of his health and whether or not he can stay healthy.

If the Dolphins do feel this way, then they are going to have to explore other options. One of these options is selecting Justin Herbert. The team has been doing their work on the Oregon quarterback and are intrigued by his arm strength and size. But there are concerns about his leadership and inconsistency.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
