 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The Miami Dolphins kept their intention to draft quarterback Tua Tagovailoa hidden up until the former Alabama quarterback was selected with the fifth overall pick last week. Various reports in the weeks and months leading into the draft questioned whether the Dolphins were sold on Tagovailoa, and even Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn -- whose team picked No. 3 -- was not sure what the Dolphins would do. Through it all, Alabama coach Nick Saban was optimistic that Miami would make Tagovailoa the highest NFL-drafted quarterback for the Tide since 1948. "Based on the calls that I get and information that I get," Saban said in a video conference with South Florida media Thursday, according to the Palm Beach Post, "I was really, really hopeful that Miami would take him."

Saban, though, was not completely confident in that actually happening. "I think he will be a great face of the organization there," Saban said. "I was just rooting for the guy. I felt so bad about him getting injured. Would those consequences of that injury affect his draft status dramatically? Probably as anxious as I ever was about a player getting drafted." Saban had been in contact with Dolphins general manager Chris Grier, who served as a national college scout while Saban was Miami's head coach in 2005 and 2006. - Birmingham News
