I get that line of thinking. If Miami believes Fields or Wilson have more upside than Tua, Grier should explore that.I've said it in multiple other threads, so it'll sound to some like I'm repeating myself, but I view Tua, Fields, and Wilson as a range of outcomes. Tua could develop into a good QB and still be not as good as Fields or Wilson; Fields or Wilson could develop into good QB's but not be as good as Tua. The point is that none of us know how close each will get to his ceiling. If you draft Fields/Wilson, and Tua plays like an All Pro in 2021, Fields/Wilson will still hold immense value. I think that's how you extract the most value from a Top 5 pick.
I'm in the "get talent around Tua" camp. Tua showed enough as a rookie to believe he can advance his game with better pieces around him. I know he wasn't as dynamic as many expected, but his decision making was pretty impressive for a rookie.
