If it wasn’t obvious before, the trades on Friday all but made certain that the Dolphins are all-in on building around Tua Tagovailoa. Yes, there was Deshaun Watson talk and a team would be crazy not to think to add the Houston superstar. But the recent allegations against Watson may have made it tricky for teams to trade for him.

With all these picks Miami has, it sets them up to build around their young quarterback and if they can nail these picks, the Dolphins could become contenders sooner rather than later.

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