Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill believes Tua Tagovailoa is in the upper echelon of quarterbacks in the league.

"Obviously, we got one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the NFL, and I'm sticking to my stance on that," Hill said, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Sports.

Hill and Tagovailoa had instant chemistry last season, as the duo combined for 317 yards and two touchdowns over the first three games. The Dolphins started 3-0, and Miami's offense looked unstoppable.

However, Tagovailoa suffered a concussion in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals, halting the Dolphins' hot start.

When the 25-year-old quarterback returned from a one-game absence, the Dolphins' offense continued to surge with Tagovailoa at the helm, ripping off five straight wins, with the passer throwing 11 touchdowns to zero interceptions during that stretch.

The Alabama product suffered another concussion in Week 15, ultimately ending his season. Tagovailoa is now healthy, and Hill believes the offense can be better than last season.

"Having Tua at quarterback and having the offensive guru we have in our head coach (Mike McDaniel) is wonderful," Hill said. "Having those weapons at his disposal, he's going to go crazy. He can have me and (Jaylen) Waddle on one side; Devon (Achane) and Raheem (Mostert) on another side. The sky is the limit for this offense."

Tagovailoa went 8-5 in 13 starts last season, throwing for 3,548 yards with 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
