He's listed as a dark horse, which means that he ranks 15th as a possible NFL MVP this year. I'll rank them below the article. Do I think he will be the NFL MVP? No, not with guys like Aaron Rodgers, Josh Allen, Pat Mahommes, Tom Brady, etc leading their teams, but after so much negative press about Tua, I like the positivity. I also think that if he stays healthy, and that would be thanks to an OL that actually blocks for him this year, he will be the "engine" that pushes them to the playoffs.

My guy Tua is primed for a breakout Year 3. Tyreek Hill is the most explosive wide receiver in the game; putting him in the same receiving corps as Jaylen Waddle is borderline illegal. And I loved the other moves Miami made to prop up the young QB, adding LT Terron Armstead, WR Cedrick Wilson and RBs Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert and Sony Michel. With run-game wizard Mike McDaniel calling plays as the Dolphins' new head coach? Perfection.
Also, I really like Tua as a player. I'm on board. He was great in college, and he's been better than most people will lead you to believe in the NFL, as evidenced by his 13-8 record as a starter. It's about availability, not ability. If Tua stays healthy, I could see him leading the Dolphins to an 11-6 playoff season. And here's the key: I don't think he will be a hood ornament on the ride to the postseason. Tua is going to be the engine for Miami's success.
