Tua Tagovailoa set his fair share of records in college at Alabama. Now, after being drafted No. 5 overall by the Miami Dolphins, Tagovailoa has his mind set on breaking another streak in the NFL.

It was announced earlier this month that Tua would be wearing jersey No. 1 in the pros. However, no quarterback dawning that number has ever won the Super Bowl. The most recent player that came close was Cam Newton, when he and his Carolina Panthers lost Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos.

While the Miami Dolphins are a far cry from being Super Bowl contenders, it's clear they drafted Tua to be their quarterback of the future, a true franchise cornerstone for the next decade or more.

If Tua can stay healthy and Miami continues to build a winning culture around him, then someone with Tua's talent will have just a good a chance as any quarterback to bring home a Super Bowl for Miami and the jersey No. 1.
