Scenario 2 – Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers, New York Jets

For the Miami Dolphins, it’s not a question of getting a quarterback, it’s a question whether or not they get their quarterback. Miami would much rather stay where they are and have their man ready to take with the fifth overall pick. Their competition, however, won’t let that happen.

Miami wants Tagovailoa. He was the top quarterback in this draft class from April through his hip injury in mid-November. Even with the hip, he’d be the best QB, but Burrow put together such an astounding 2019 campaign that the LSU signal-caller shot to the top.

According to many reports, the injury is progressing nicely and Tagovailoa is medically cleared to resume workouts. He will be ready to go when training camps open this summer. Miami needs to make a deal to stay ahead of the competition. It will have to be a good one.

This is similar to but much better than Jacksonville’s offer. Here Gettleman gets the 18th pick in exchange for moving down one spot in the first round and three in the second. It’s a no-brainer to accept.

New York gets their top choice of tackle, Tristan Wirfs of Iowa. His combine showed that Wirfs is probably the most athletic tackle among the top tier. At Iowa, he played on the right side. That’s also where Wirfs will start his pro career, but eventually, he will slide over to the left tackle once the G-Men are rid of Nate Solder.

This scenario isn’t over yet.
