MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins selected Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

In 32 games at Alabama, he threw for 7,442 yards, 87 touchdowns, and 11 picks.

Tagovailoa missed the second half of the 2019 season at Alabama with a hip injury.

This is one of the reasons he fell to the No. 5 pick.

Miami was 5-11 last season.
