Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the former Alabama star was Miami's "first call" for a visit, but the logistics didn't work at that time.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the NFL issued a memo to all 32 teams that effective March 14, predraft visits to club facilities must be halted. It further stated that interviews must be conducted via telephone or video conference.
The Dolphins have been linked to Tagovailoa for more than one year when ESPN's Adam Schefter reported in January 2019 they were considering a complete roster rebuild with the goal of landing one of the top quarterbacks in the 2020 draft class.
Tagovailoa's draft stock wasn't immediately clear in November when he dislocated his hip during Alabama's 38-7 win over Mississippi State. The 2018 SEC Offensive Player of the Year had surgery to repair the injury on November 18.
ESPN's Laura Rutledge reported on March 9 that Tagovailoa has been cleared for all football activity.
Prior to the season-ending injury, Tagovailoa threw for 2,833 yards with 33 touchdowns and a 71.4 completion percentage last season.
B/R's Matt Miller has Tagovailoa ranked as the No. 2 quarterback prospect and No. 6 overall player in the 2020 class.
The Dolphins own three first-round draft picks this year, including the No. 5 overall selection. The 2020 NFL draft will be held from April 23-25.
