DeVonta Smith says he and Tua Tagovailoa have talked about running it back

Tua Tagovailoa and DeVonta Smith

The Miami Dolphins are coming off a solid 2020 campaign, which bodes well for the franchise’s immediate future with a promising young quarterback under center in Tua Tagovailoa.

One thing that could help Tagovailoa take the next step in his game is adding some talent at wide receiver. Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith has talked to his former University of Alabama teammate about teaming up in the NFL.

The Dolphins are in an ideal position to take another giant leap next season by adding another top-tier talent in the 2021 NFL Draft. Miami owns the No. 3 pick in this year’s draft and might be able to get their hands on Smith.

Head coach Brian Flores thinks highly of Smith, which could lead to some traction leading up to the draft.

Smith had an incredible season for the Crimson Tide in 2020. He racked up 1,856 yards and 23 touchdowns on 117 receptions as Alabama went on to win a seventh national title in the Nick Saban era.

The Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets sit ahead of the Dolphins in the NFL draft at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively. Both teams could add a quarterback, but the Jets could elect to trade for Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans.

The 2021 NFL Draft will take place on April 29, with the Dolphins potentially hoping Smith falls to them at No. 3.
