After he was egregiously left off the NFL’s top AFC quarterbacks list, the panel for Good Morning Football put him in the sixth tier as an AFC quarterback. Tagovailoa put the Miami Dolphins in the playoffs, despite missing games with multiple concussions.

He beat Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen last year and turned in great numbers when healthy.
The native Hawaiian had his first 3,000+ yard passing season (3,548) under Mike McDaniel and 25 passing touchdowns.
He led the National Football League for passer rating (105.5) and will get better. He has been performing different methods of mixed martial arts training to keep himself from head injuries. McDaniel is excited about the work Tagovailoa’s put in during the offseason. He believes the former Alabama quarterback is the ‘perfect fit’ for his system with the Dolphins in South Florida.
Tagovailoa looks to jump a few tiers in the fall.
