According to Zia Fiddler, the Miami Dolphins should consider trading to pick quarterback Joe Old in this week’s NFL Draft.

Burrow, who won the Heisman Trophy against Clemson last season and led LSU to a national championship, is expected to be the first overall pick of this year’s class under quarterback-deficient Cincinnati Bengals.

The Dolphins have three first-round selections – and two next year – but their highest fifth overall pick in 2020, where quarterbacks like Tua Tagovelloa and Justin Herbert are under consideration.

However, Tagovaleva is recovering from a dislocated hip that suffered in November, and would like to consider Fiddler’s move from Miami to old age.

He told Stats Performance, “I’ve been at Joe Old since the beginning of the season.

“I watched a game, this was the second game of the year against Texas and he proved to me how much he could sit in his pocket, how competitive he was.

“They had a great return win in this game. He was throwing something right under intense pressure.

“I saw that game, especially in the fourth quarter of that game, and I called my agent. This was when everybody was in Tua. I said, ‘Don’t be surprised if this guy from LSU is the number one guy’ before that was about to hit.” [for Tagovailoa].

“He certainly continued from there and had an incredible season, finishing with the National Championship.

“I’m a lot higher than Burrow. I think if the Dolphins even had the opportunity to go up in the draft and get him, I think he would be the number one choice for me.

“Obviously, Tua has had great success playing, but he certainly has a lot of question marks with a lot of stability. Investing in a franchise boy with these question marks is a tough decision.

“Outside of these two guys, again it’s a crashshoot below the next level.”

Former Oregon QB Herbert has beaten Tagovailoa in some mock drafts due to injury concerns in Alabama.

However, Fidler’s Jordan gains of 59 recorded for Miami between 2000 and 2004 are higher.

“I think that guy in the state of Utah, love has collectively shown some good things and if you go back and look at his tape, it’s pretty impressive,” he added.

“From a physical point of view, being able to make every throw and make it unpredictable, I think he is the next guy I see in the draft” “
