Default Thoughts On Tua Tagovailoa Declaring For NFL Drft?
So, Bama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has declared for the upcoming NFL.draft. What are your thoughts on him declaring for the draft? Would you have done the same if you were in his shoes? If you were an NFL team, would you risk a draft pick in him? If so, how high would you draft him?

I would have done the same if I were him. Teams were willing to take him in the Top 10 and I don't know if his stock could have gone much higher given the risk that would come with his going back (re-injury, not performing as well, losing a year of earning potential, the season being cancelled or abbreviated).

I like the pick if I'm in the shoes of the Dolphins, as they have plenty of draft capital to put pieces around him, and they've possibly got another year of tanking where he can begin the season with the clipboard and ease into the role as he heals and progresses.

I don't like him as the pick for most of the teams with early picks though, at least insofar as I wouldn't want to invest so much in a quarterback with his injury-profile unless I had a solid offensive line and run game to eliminate the need for him to be as exposed on drop backs and/or to have some decent weapons at the skill positions to help make his life easier. For instance, if I'm the Bengals and I had the #2 pick and Burrow was gone, I don't know that I'd touch him.

Just noticed that you posted this in January. Would change the above about the coronavirus but otherwise, it's pretty much the same.

He won't get the level of protection and be able to get away with the mobility he had and risks he took against SEC talent. If he can stay healthy after a couple years he may do well with the right fit.

I worry about him thinking he can run in the NFL like he did in college and that dog simply doesn't hunt in the NFL with all its speed at every position. Time will tell! That big family needs for him to be successful. I hope he does well.
