  Google "Alabama quarterback" and "beloved," and the results are like a rundown of recent Crimson Tide QBs. Stories about Jalen Hurts, Blake Sims, AJ McCarron and Tua Tagovailoa instantly pop up. But not all football fans are enamored with the Alabama signal-callers. The Tide has its Iron Bowl opponent and 12 other SEC rivals. Then there's seemingly annual postseason foe Clemson and other teams of national stature that Alabama has butted heads with along the championship trail. So Tagovailoa could speak from personal experience when he gave advice about dealing with social-media trolls during the Miami Dolphins' annual High School Media Day.

"For me, going through that in college, it's really however much you decide to go on your social media, first off," Tagovailoa said. "If you're on that thing every time, you're obviously going to see whatever anyone says. If there's someone that likes to post just to post because you like the likes or you like the comments, you're going to see that. There's been instances where I ran into a lot of them, but I don't know - I guess the structure that I've had growing up, it's been easy to deal with sort of things like that. Having the structure of my family and then our faith as well, that's kind of what's helped me and helped me to not worry about those kind of things." - Birmingham News

  Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores said earlier this month that the coaching staff was eager to work with the NFL team's rookies, particularly first-round draft pick Tua Tagovailoa. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Dolphins' facility in Davie, Florida, was off-limits to the team's coaches and most of the players as Miami conducted its offseason program online. "Specific to Tua, he's working hard," Flores said on June 4. "He's picking up the information. But you want to get your hands on him, quite honestly." Now the Dolphins can. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Tagovailoa arrived for work at the Dolphins' headquarters on Monday after relocating from Alabama, giving team personnel their first chance to evaluate first-hand his progress from a hip injury since Miami selected the Crimson Tide quarterback with the fifth choice in the NFL Draft on April 23. - Birmingham News

  Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a surprise for his mother on Mother's Day. The former Alabama All-American gave Diane Tagovailoa a Cadillac Escalade on Sunday. Tua Tagovailoa shared the gift presentation on his Instagram account on Sunday night. The fifth player selected in the NFL Draft on April 23, Tagovailoa is in line for a four-year, $30.275 million contract that will include a signing bonus of around $19.6 million. Tagovailoa headed for the NFL as Alabama's all-time leader in touchdown passes and the holder of the NCAA FBS record for career passing-efficiency rating at 199.4. Tagovailoa completed 474-of-684 passes for 7,442 yards with 87 touchdowns and 11 interceptions and ran for 340 yards and nine touchdowns on 107 carries in three seasons with the Crimson Tide. - Birmingham News

  Rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will wear No. 1 for the Miami Dolphins. The fifth player picked in the 2020 NFL Draft on April 23, Tagovailoa wore No. 13 while playing at Alabama. He also wore that number while playing for Saint Louis School in Honolulu. But Tagovailoa couldn't wear No. 13 for Miami. The Dolphins retired that jersey number to honor quarterback Dan Marino. Marino played for Miami from 1983 through 1999 and retired as the NFL's career leader in passing yards and touchdown passes. Marino entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005 in his first year of eligibility.

Marino's 13 is one of three numbers retired by the Dolphins. The others are the No. 12 of quarterback Bob Griese and the No. 39 of running back Larry Csonka. Tagovailoa revealed his new number via his Instagram account on Tuesday night. Fanatics is already selling the Tagovailoa No. 1 jersey for $99 with free shipping available. Eight Miami players have worn No. 1, the most notable being place-kicker Garo Yepremian, who had that jersey for the Dolphins from 1970 through 1978. Former Auburn kicker Cody Parkey wore No. 1 during his single season with Miami in 2017. - Birmingham 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

  When the Miami Dolphins selected Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth overall pick in last week's NFL Draft, it guaranteed the Hawaiian left-hander millions of dollars. But what if Tagovailoa could have made millions while staying for another season at Alabama? If the recent NCAA-endorsed plan for name, image and likeness was in place and allowed Tagovailoa to be paid to star in commercials, he could have according to those most bullish about the market for college athletes. Tagovailoa would have been well suited to cash in on his national recognition and ability to tap into multiple markets given his Hawaiian roots. Bob Dorfman, creative director of Baker Street Advertising, says Tagovailoa could have made "three to five million, easy" during his time at Alabama. Andy Schwarz, an economist and partner at OSKR, believes "low millions" would have been possible for Tagovailoa though six figures was probably more likely early on.

In talking to multiple sports marketing experts, a consensus emerges that it is players like Tagovailoa and Clemson star quarterback Trevor Lawrence who stand to gain the most if the boldest aspects of the NCAA's proposed NIL plan come to fruition. (There is a lot of skepticism that they will, which we'll get to later.) Similar to the NFL where quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers reap the biggest endorsement deals, it will likely be the high-profile quarterbacks and Heisman contenders who brands will want to embrace. In theory, brands will be allowed to pay athletes to promote their products on social media platforms, appear in television commercials and attend events, among other options. - Birmingham News

  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

  Miami coach Brian Flores' family is ready for Tua Tagovailoa to step in as the Dolphins' starting quarterback, but Flores said there's a long way to go before that happens. "I'll say my kids are expecting him (to start)," Flores said during an online press conference after the Dolphins selected the Alabama quarterback with the fifth pick in the 85th NFL Draft on Thursday night. "They're big fans. They were excited to get on the phone call with him. But, look, we haven't even seen him, obviously, with the pandemic and all that's going on. Our doctors haven't seen him, so we've a long way to go before we can say who's doing what. We'd like to just get him and have a meeting first.

"I think it's way too early to speculate on this year and how this is going to go. You guys know we like to take a one-day-at-a-time approach anyway. That's going to be the approach I'm going to have him take as well." The Dolphins have two quarterbacks with experience as NFL starters on their roster. Fifteen-year veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick started 13 games for Miami last season. As the Dolphins' leading passer and rusher in 2019, he led Miami to victory in five of their final nine games after the team started 0-7 - a level of play seemingly at odds with the "Tanking for Tua" tag hung on the team as it traded regulars out of its lineup for draft picks. Josh Rosen started at quarterback in the other three 2019 games for Miami. Rosen was the 10th player picked in the 2018 NFL Draft and started 13 games for Arizona as a rookie. The Cardinals replaced him with Kyler Murray, the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. - Birmingham News
