The Dolphins have the ability to trade up to five first rounders and four second rounders in the next two drafts. That type of war chest is unbeatable, though Miami Sitting at No. 13 overall , the only way the Colts can get their hands on Tua is if his medicals are worse than expected or via a trade up .

Pro Football Network’s Benjamin Allbright reports that the Dolphins would not be interested in moving up to No. 1 overall. However, they are very high on him and could go up as high as No. 2 overall in a trade-up scenario to land their guy.

Circling back to the Dolphins, they have a real chance to make a major jump in 2020 if they can nail this coming draft. Tagovailoa is a proven winner with exceptional accuracy and athleticism. The big red flag at this point is whether he can stay healthy. If the Dolphins believe he can, then they could do a lot worse than landing this former Heisman candidate.
