Dolphins QB coach on Tua Tagovailoa: ‘There really isn’t a throw he can’t make’

When Darrell Bewell first met with the media in February as Miami Dolphins quarterback coach, he hadn’t seen Tua Tagovailoa throw a throw for him in person. So Bewell, the third-year quarterback’s highly-analysed evaluation of arm strength, didn’t want to be taken out of the film entirely.

Well, it’s now been nearly a month since I saw Bevel throwing Tagovailoa into the Dolphins’ off-season workout schedule. What does he think now?

“I’ve seen nothing but really good things,” Bewell said, speaking to reporters Friday after the team’s first two minicamp sessions. “I’m excited for what I saw. I made these comments when we first got here because I firmly believe you really want to see it, and you’re different when you’re there in person.” Can tell different things. Very happy with what I saw.”

Bevel echoed a similar sentiment that new offensive coordinator Frank Smith said this week, that the offense should have no vertical boundary with Tagovailoa behind the centre.

“We’ll be able to do whatever we want to do,” said Bewell, who has worked with the likes of Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford and Trevor Lawrence in his last two decades of NFL coaching. “There really isn’t a throw he can’t make.”

The topic of Tagovailoa’s arm has reached a fever pitch this week when the Dolphins released a video of a long pass by him to wide receiver Tyrek Hill on social media to highlight the connection. However, the throw, which took place without defence, appeared to wobble a bit and was dropped to the point where Hill was not hit in the stride and had to turn to catch it.

This brought back questions about Tagovailoa’s arm strength, which has been around for his first two NFL seasons. Smith backed Tagovailoa when asked Wednesday, and on Thursday Hill responded to many social media critics of his new quarterback with a video where Tagovailoa made a series of better-looking throws, including a deep ball. was involved. ,

Tagovailoa has been known to always do well, throwing down with accuracy and anticipation, things that will benefit him in Miami’s new offense under Smith and new coach Mike McDaniel.

“A sense of timing and accuracy would be the first two things I would say,” Bevel said of what impressed him. “Tua’s really got to be a great experience for both of them. That’s where I would say it starts [in this offense],

Bevel also spoke about Tagovailoa’s personality, the way he prepares and works. He said that he saw leadership qualities in him at the start of this season.

“Each guy really has a different set of leadership skills,” Bewell said. “Nobody’s man will be the same, but Tua definitely has it. The No. 1 thing is when you play well it helps you lead. He’s doing all the other things. He’s on his own.” He’s working on the game. He’s working on his team. He’s doing everything he can to help him become a great leader.”

It helps that the Dolphins have an experienced NFL starting quarterback at Teddy Bridgewater to support him as a backup.

“Very capable backups,” Bevel said. “Obviously, another guy who is very experienced in the NFL, he has played a lot of games, so any time you have to go to him, you feel very comfortable with that.

“He and Tua already have a great relationship. They communicate well, and I think that’s always an important factor for those guys. The starting quarterback kind of needs that guy to lean on.” I think Teddy would be great for him. But Teddy hasn’t lost his bite either. He’s a competitive guy, and for his opportunity, if he gets one, he’ll be up and ready to go Will happen.

On Friday, Dolphins rookie quarterback seventh-round draft pick Skylar Thompson received her first throw in Miami’s practice area at a rookie minicamp after signing on the morning.

“I liked the way he played the No. 1 position,” Bewell said of his evaluation pre-draft of the former Kansas State signal-caller. “He always, as I watched his tapes, played it with a good base. He’s a big guy. He’s even played it for a while. He’s got a lot of experience.

“Then, [Friday]I liked his command very much. I liked the way he was able to enter the crowd, able to communicate with the people because plays are very worrying. And then he was able to make some plays with his hand. Nice first day.”

Bewell said what sets him apart from fellow Dolphins quarterback Chris Streweler, who was signed early in the offseason: “His versatility. We’ve been dealing with him a lot in practice. He’s doing a lot of different things, especially Working on teams. He’s just a tireless worker.”
