Tua Tagovailoa has been under the microscope ever since he landed in the NFL. Many people have begun to question his capability to throw the deep ball.

Tua and coach Mike McDaniel laid those concerns to rest Thursday. During a press conference, the Miami Dolphins head coach stated, “If the quarterback can see the defense and is accurate then you just see if he can throw it 60 yards… I think he might have had a 55-yarder today but that's why you don’t hear any cause for concern from the players.”

McDaniel later goes on to say he doesn't really see a need to throw the ball 80 yards in the air unless you have, “the best offensive line in the history of football.” Tua went on to throw two bombs in Miami's second day of mandatory minicamp. 

The first pass was a 55-yard dot just over Noah Igbinoghene’s head and into the hands of the lightning-fast Tyreek Hill. The second was another bomb downfield to Tyreek Hill for 69 yards. I believe it is safe to say, Tua can throw the deep ball. 

The real question is, will he have enough time to throw it. Last season the Dolphins were the number one team in allowing pressures to the quarterback. This offseason, they have managed to pick up Terron Armstead (LT) and Connor Wiliiams (LG). While these are amazing additions, the right side of the line is still untouched and currently, the Dolphins only have one center on the roster. 

If the offensive line manages to hold up this year, we will get to see plays like the one we got to see against Georgia when Tua came in the game to win us the national championship.
