34. Tua Tagovailoa

The 2020 season was a strange year for everyone, and especially Tagovailoa. The Hawaiian quarterback arrived in Miami as a top pick amid great excitement. There were questions about his body after a horrendous hip injury for the Crimson Tide. Dolphins head coach Brian Flores carefully managed his young star, who made his first appearance in week six. Tagovailoa assumed the starting role in week eight, taking over from the wonderfully-bearded Ryan Fitzpatrick.

This is where it got messy for Tagovailoa. Despite being the starter, Flores replaced him with Fitzpatrick twice over the final half of the season because the rookie was underperforming. Of course, Tagovailoa is young and has the skills to potentially be a star, but it was much too early to hype him to such a ridiculous extent. His future might not even lie in Miami because early 2021 reports revealed that his teammates didn’t believe him.
