Who says Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa isn't among NFL's five best QBs? His peers do

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa led the NFL in passer rating this season but is getting little love from peers.

The NFL Players Association released results of its first All-Pro balloting. To no one’s surprise, Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes was the top vote-getter.

But a closer look at the top five vote-getters at each position shows no sign of Tagovailoa, who has cleared concussion protocol.

Instead, the other QBs rounding out the top five are, in order, Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Joe Burrow and Lamar Jackson.

No Dolphins made the All-Pro team, but four came close. Alec Ingold was third at fullback. Tied for fourth were Terron Armstead (at left tackle) and Tyreek Hill (at receiver). And Jevon Holland came in fifth at free safety.

Here are the top vote-getters, in order, at selected other positions where Dolphins players appeared to be in contention:

Wide receiver: Justin Jefferson, Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, Hill and A.J. Brown.

Left tackle: Trent Williams, Laremy Tunsil, Andrew Thomas and Armstead tied with Jordan Mailata.

Right guard: Zack Martin, Chris Lindstrom, Brandon Scherff and a tie between Wyatt Teller and Trey Smith.

Interior defensive line: Chris Jones, Aaron Donald, Quinnen Williams, Jonathan Allen and a tie between Jeffery Simmons and Javon Hargrave.

Free safety: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Kevin Byard, Quandre Diggs, Jessie Bates, Holland.
