Tua Tagovailoa practicing social distancing
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, incoming prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft aren’t able to visit with teams, but that isn’t stopping Tua Tagovailoa from showing the progress he’s made from his injury. In a video on his Instagram, Tagovailoa was throwing a football for the first time since his injury.
Entering the 2019 season, Tu Tagovailoa was considered the No. 1 quarterback prospect for the 2020 NFL Draft. However, a serious hip injury that he sustained later in the season caused his draft stock to take a slight dip.
While Tagovailoa was recovering from injury, Joe Burrow put together a historic season to cement himself as the presumptive No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Nevertheless, it’s a positive sign to see Tagovailoa throwing a football again.
At the same time, it’s surprising to see Tagovailoa moving around with ease already. Considering the injury was nearly four months ago, it appears that he is way ahead of schedule in his recovery process.
In his final season at Alabama, Tagovailoa threw for 2,840 yards, 33 touchdowns, and three interceptions in nine starts. Aside from the injury, Tagovailoa provided a ton of tape for teams to get enamored with during the draft process.
Tagovailoa is attempting to show teams that his recovery from his hip injury is going well. Even though Burrow is likely to be taken at No. 1, Tua Tagovailoa is expected to be the second quarterback taken in the first round. His first workout video since his injury is definitely something to get excited about if you’re a team interested in selecting him.
