  If the Miami Dolphins hadn't selected Tua Tagovailoa in the NFL draft last week, a different organization was set to take the former Alabama star quarterback one pick later. Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco confirmed on the Pat McAfee show that the Chargers would have selected Tagovailoa with pick No. 6 had the Dolphins instead opted for Oregon QB Justin Herbert with selection No. 5. With Tagovailoa gone, the Chargers drafted Herbert. "We felt great about both guys," Telesco said during the interview. "Actually, we felt great about all three quarterbacks that went in the top six.

All three are going to be really good players in this league. Hopefully we don't pick sixth very often - if we do, I won't be making very many picks here - so if you're going to pick this high and there's a potential down the road franchise quarterback there that you like, you have to take him. And we were lucky to have some quarterbacks there in this draft that were really good players." Telesco had heard all of the rumors about the Dolphins and that No. 5 pick leading up to the draft - the combination of the talk about the team preferring Herbert over Tagovailoa and the reports the day before the draft about Miami being interested in trading up for an offensive tackle instead of taking a quarterback. Ultimately though, the Dolphins ended up selecting Tagovailoa, leaving Herbert there for the Chargers to take with pick No. 6. - Birmingham News
