Brian Flores Offers Heavy Praise for Miami Dolphins Rookies During 1st Week of Practice

2 Min Read

Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores had offered some praise for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and the rest of the team’s rookie class.

The Dolphins have begun training camp, allowing the coaching staff its first true look at the 2020 rookie class.

“Tua and the entire rookie group are doing well,” Flores said. “I feel like speaking about one and not speaking about the entire group is – they are all really working hard. I think we’ve got a pretty solid group. They work hard, they’ve worked hard this first week, they are into it, they are picking up the schemes offensively, defensively, and the kicking game.

“But again, it’s walk-thru. Anything past their height, weight and speed, we’re not really seeing them move or change directions or really sprint. We’re really not seeing that from anyone in the group, including Tua. I think they are all doing a good job.”

While Flores seems to be keeping some things under wraps, it is promising that he believes the rookie class is doing well.

Miami has a lot of important pieces that it drafted in 2020, including Tagovailoa, cornerback Noah Igbinoghene and offensive linemen Robert Hunt and Austin Jackson.

After going 5-11 last season, the Dolphins are hoping that the new additions will help them improve on that record this season.
