So I was very happy with the Tua pick. My gut was telling me to make this pick, and I’m glad the Dolphin Chris Grier agreed. The young Flores boys seemed to agree too, as they were so eager to grab the phone and talk to Tua.
I was going to vow to learn how to spell and pronounce his last name, but I gave up already. Incidentally, Tua is just a nickname. I cannot pronounce or spell his real first name either. So he is Tua for life in this blog.
Austin Jackson and Noah I. (another young man whose name I won’t try to spell) were both under my radar. When that happens, all I can do it study the pre-draft analyses of this guys, and it’s mostly positive. Noah is being called a stretch, as some had him in the 4th round. But others say he is a steal. We’ll see. I trust our GM far more than his predecessors.
On to Rounds 2 and 3 tonight!
