Tagovailoa, 22, is expected to hit high marks in the NFL.
After all, the Dolphins selected the University of Alabama product with the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The high selection was despite a serious hip injury that Tagovailoa suffered late in the season at Alabama. The injury forced Tagovailoa to prematurely end his final collegiate season.
During his time in Alabama, he passed for 7,442 total yards and 87 total touchdowns.
Now, he has the opportunity to turn the Dolphins’ future around. The youngster has the tools and charisma to become a superstar in Miami.
Being able to practice with teammates is an encouraging first step towards what is hopefully a highly successful career.
