    That's over 40% of the final squad....or 20% of the preseason team. It will be interesting to see how many can make the final cuts vs. last year's talent...it may be a higher percentage than expected.

    Personally, I think that means he's going to do a little bit of everything. I'm probably the most excited about him in camp just to see his growth and how they use him...I'd think he's a long shot to make the final roster at WR but maybe not as a RB4/QB4/WR5/KR/ST type of guy.

    Not a fan of #1, but it is what it is. I'm betting that the rookie DBs switch numbers once a lot of the guys currently taking up space in the 20s get cut.

    There are a few.

    #1 is cool for Tua.

    I used to play in a band that often played to an audience of one - or it seemed like it. We must have been holier than we thought!

    When asked about how many turned up, we used to jokingly say "one man and his dog". It's clear now that we were being dyslexic without even realising.

    Mysterious ways etc....

    Jerseys are now available but I don't see the throwback anywhere. Some things about this league just leave me scratching my head. Get all the jerseys, and whatever variants, up and running asap. Isn't there money to be made?

    Number 1 is a great number for him! It's perfect in my opinion. So hyped about him, the excitement keeps growing. I'll definitely be buying a jersey.

    I can’t believe he’s going to wear Garo Yepremian’s number!

    If he is good enough Garo Yepremian would have been wearing Tua's number.

    Is the “first round pick” Tua jersey on the NFL fan shop a real jersey, or a quick cash grab?

    Both.

    Read the fine print. They don't send out the jersey until there is a number.

    He was one of the first soccer style kickers in the league. I could never understand why he lined up diagonally to kick the ball when all the other kickers lined up straight on.

    I will say though, I remember SCREAMING at the tv as a boy when he botched his pass attempt in the Super Bowl.
    So glad Miami won that Super Bowl

    I saw that - was curious if it was some “special edition” jersey that’s almost, but not quite the real thing

    Tua is the #1 selling jersey on NFL Shop right now.

    I saw that he's actually #1 and #3, with the aqua and white.

    I'm gonna stick with my 2012 aqua Tannehill, personally. Before the switch to the new colors.
