The Miami Dolphins selected Jaylen Waddle No. 6 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday, and former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa got excited from his couch at home.

Tagovailoa went live on Instagram to celebrate the reunion.

Waddle caught 78 passes for 1,408 yards and 13 touchdowns in two seasons with Tagovailoa at Alabama.

Tagovailoa was selected No. 5 overall by the Dolphins in the 2020 NFL Draft and made nine starts as a rookie.
