To paraphrase Andy Dwyer (Parks and Recreation, for you non-Chris Pratt fans out there), “This draft
just REMAINED interesting.”

No sooner did I have my write-up for the #6 pick submitted, when suddenly the football gods provided
me with an afternoon of pure football entertainment in the form of multiple trades of first round picks.
Now I’m the Dolphins GM and I’m on the clock.

When in doubt, I nearly always favor drafting offensive line ahead of wide receiver. In this case though,
I’m going to depart from that strategy. I believe the Dolphins will draft an immediate impact player in
order to provide Tua with someone to help move the chains consistently.

Therefore, with the sixth pick in the draft, the Dolphins select Ja’marr Chase, wide receiver from LSU. As
a true sophomore sharing receptions with future NFL rookie stud Justin Jefferson, Chase was a monster.
Despite not being Joe Burrow’s primary target, Chase pulled in 84 receptions for 1,780 yards and a
ridiculous 20 touchdowns….in 15 games. That’s nuts. Plainly stated, he could not be stopped. He
routinely embarrassed opponents and was often at his best in big games.

Why did I choose Chase above Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle or Florida TE Kyle Pitts? Actually, some days I
might prefer one of them. But after consideration, I think Chase just brings a playoff-winning physical
style of WR to Miami. He kind of reminds me of DeAndre Hopkins. And he’s still young and developing;
it’s scary. Look out, AFC East – Ja’Marr Chase is coming to town.

Dolphins GM Team Player selects: WR Ja’Marr Chase, LSU

We will find out if Tua is any good this year. New receivers, new coordinator, and a solid line.

Yeah, I was a big fan of Tua at Alabama, so I don’t want to judge him too harshly after just one season. But his arm looked very suspect to me at times last year. I’m hopeful that the Dolphins can get some additional talent on offense and make things work.

Do we know if his injury had completely healed?

I thought Tua was done before he got to the NFL

A lot of really awesome QBs start off less than impressive their first year. Peyton Manning looked awful his first year. He turned out pretty well.
