Many of us said that while we hoped Tua would go high in the draft and get paid, we didn't want our NFL teams to be the ones drafting him. Some players are just unlucky with respect the injury bug.

Well it’s why it’s the most idiotic idea to draft a quarterback in the top 10. Most of the teams just suck and will continue to suck.
Maybe, but I think that teams should draft the best player available. If it is a QB, take him, but don't play him until he is ready. That probably means getting great draft picks the following year, too. It takes a few years to build a team, but you eventually have to try and pick up a franchise QB.

Look at Sam Darnold. The Jets are one of the worst franchises in the history of the sport. He gets out of that hell hole and is flourishing with the Panthers. The kid the Jets drafted is getting clobbered.

Tua needs a similar break. The Dolphins have been in the crapper since the early 80s.

Maybe, but Darnold looked solid playing for the Jets. They bailed on him, and he is celebrating
