Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is making quite the impression on his new teammates during training camp.

The No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft has looked just as mobile and athletic as he did before he suffered a major hip injury at the University of Alabama last season.

Just a day after Jordan Howard praised the quarterback’s performance, multiple Miami defenders touched on Tagovailoa’s development.

Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah praised Tagovailoa’s mobility and discussed how the rookie is developing as a passer.

Defensive back Eric Rowe also has been impressed with the development of Tagovailoa’s passing ability.

Both are welcome signs for a Dolphins team that is hoping that Tagovailoa will soon be the franchise quarterback.

While Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to open the season under center, Tagovailoa’s drastic improvements could help him see time sooner rather than later.
