Jan 6 update: Tagovailoa has declared for the 2020 NFL Draft. He has hired agent Leigh Steinberg to represent him in the process.
Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa entered the 2019 college football season as one of the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy and get drafted as the No. 1 overall pick. The QB has put together one of the most stunningly productive performances over the past season and a half. He finished second in 2018 Heisman Trophy balloting, and was on track to be a finalist once again for the award.
Unfortunately, Tagovailoa dislocated his hip in Week 12 against Mississippi State. It ended his season and could potentially shake up his draft stock next spring. He had surgery and begins a rehab process that could take as long as six months. There are reports he could start throwing in the spring, but hip dislocations can create numerous complications along the way.
Tagovailoa is still all but certain to go in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft given how desperate teams are for quarterbacks. But, there are enough issues that where exactly he goes in the first is a big question.
We’ll be tracking Tua Tagovailoa’s progress as he rehabs from his hip injury and prepares for the 2020 NFL Draft. This stream will include all news, rumors, and anything that comes along to impact his draft status. Follow along into the spring!
