I'm surprised at some fans I've talked to who soured on Tua because of one bad game (although it was a big one). The kid played top competition all season long and excelled impressively.

As initially reported weeks ago, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has told people he would love for the Dolphins to be able to draft Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa if he turns pro for the 2020 Draft.
So what would Miami be getting?
NBC 6’s Chris Fischer asked a coach who knows him as well as anyone — Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator Dan Enos, who was Alabama’s quarterbacks coach last season.

“Here’s why he’s going to be successful,” Enos said. “He’s very talented, he’s got arm strength, he’s got feet, he’s athletic. He also has tremendous instincts. Maybe the best instincts of any player I’ve ever been around. His ability to make quick decisions, unscripted, is what separates him from others I’ve been around.
“He will be [excellent], man. He’s a great player. But every bit what a great player he is, he can match it with his character. Tua is an A plus player and an A plus person. Great integrity, great character, team guy. He was so coachable, never satisfied with the way he played and always wanted to get better.
“Very rarely did he ever have a frown on his face. Sometimes I would say, ‘Is something bothering you?’ He would say nothing or get it off his chest but [that was rare]. The guy has got great humility to him, which is one reason he’s so likable to his teammates and why they respect him so much.
“I told him don’t ever become a celebrity quarterback. He didn’t. He stayed humble, always lowered himself and was a great teammate. I would see him encouraging scout team players during practice. He’s real. The guy gets it.”
Enos, incidentally, laughed uproariously when informed by Fischer about the “Tank for Tua” movement among some Dolphins fans.
