Tagovailoa hopes Dolphins choose Najee Harris in draft

The Miami Dolphins have the 3rd- and 18th-general picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. Ideal now, it’s unclear which players they may possibly be targeting with those selections.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa just lately indicated that he’d like to see the crew draft Alabama running again Najee Harris. 

“He’s going to be a pleasurable person to watch this impending period,” Tagovailoa mentioned on the Yahoo Athletics podcast, in accordance to the New York Publish. “With any luck , we are on the same crew.”

Most groups never use their premium 1st-round picks on jogging backs, so Harris will most likely be taken toward the end of the first round or into the next spherical. The only running again taken in the initial spherical of the 2020 draft was Clyde-Edwards Helaire. Josh Jacobs was the only again in the very first spherical of the 2019 draft and Saquon Barkley in the 2018 draft. 

Harris would be a strong addition for the Dolphins, who struggled to run the ball last season. The 22-yr-aged ran for about 1,000 yards in just about every of his previous two seasons at Alabama. In 4 seasons with the Crimson Tide, he ran for 3,843 yards and 46 touchdowns. He also experienced 80 catches for 781 yards and 11 scores. 

If Miami requires Harris, he’ll probable acquire around running again responsibilities from Myles Gaskin.
