Tua Tagovailoa receiving ‘overwhelmingly positive’ reports from teams

Tua Tagovailoa, NFL Draft, Redskins

Alabama Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is considered to be one of the best prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft. It seems he could potentially see his stock rise as the process continues.

Tagovailoa has been recovering from a dislocated hip he suffered last November. According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, he has reportedly made tremendous strides in getting back to 100 percent:

Following two days of medical testing, QB Tua Tagovailoa received overwhelmingly positive reports on his dislocated hip from teams who examined him, sources say. The MRIs were as clean as hoped, fracture is healed, there is no loss of blood flow. One source: “Looked great.”

This is certainly an encouraging update regarding Tagovailoa. Although he had already been considered perhaps the second-best quarterback behind LSU’s Joe Burrow, the reports about a full recovery will only help his draft stock.

Despite the injury, Tagovailoa is coming off a stellar college career as the Crimson Tide’s touchdown responsibility leader with 96. He also eclipsed quarterback AJ McCarron’s mark for the most touchdown passes in program history by throwing 87. More importantly, his skill set as a dual-threat option makes him an ideal fit for today’s NFL.

There has been plenty of speculation regarding the potential landing spots for Tagovailoa in the upcoming draft. Many have already pegged the Miami Dolphins as the frontrunners with the No. 5 pick. There are still a number of quarterback-hungry teams that could be looking to trade up, especially now that the concerns regarding his hip have started to dissipate.
