Dolphins could skip QB this draft and target Trevor Lawrence in 2021?

There’s plenty of scuttlebutt around the NFL right now that the Miami Dolphins have soured on Tua Tagovailoa and could abstain from taking a quarterback with their first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Now comes another interesting rumor, courtesy of The MMQB’s Albert Breer, who shared on the “Rich Eisen Show” that Miami could potentially be looking to skip quarterback altogether in 2020 and target Trevor Lawrence in 2021.

Breer covered a lot of ground in his appearance on the show. Around the 40-second mark, he starts discussing the Dolphins.

Now, it’s important to note that Breer thinks it’s improbable that Miami would actually follow this plan, since it would revolve around the franchise tanking once more in 2020 after last year’s tank job. And that makes sense, especially considering the amount of money the Fins spent in free agency this offseason.

It may make more sense for Miami, if it indeed is not sold on Tagovailoa as a long-term franchise quarterback, to take an offensive tackle or another key defender early before maneuvering a bit later for Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. He’s reportedly a player the Dolphins have been enamored by, and there’s a chance he could be available outside the top 10.

It’s going to be fascinating to see what Miami does in this year’s draft.
