Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa announced nine days ago that he will enter the 2020 NFL Draft. He has faced questions about his recovery timeline following a November dislocated hip, but we heard some good news on Tuesday. Tagovailoa’s agent, Leigh Steinberg, told AL.com that “Tagovailoa is expected to hold about a 40-minute session in which he makes 60-80 throws in front of scouts.”

Steinberg left the door open for Tagovailoa to throw at the Alabama Pro Day in March, but if he is unable to go, he would hold a separate pro day in April. Big name players often have their own pro days, coupled with visits and private workouts for teams. This suggests Tagovailoa might just have one passing workout rather than workout privately for several teams, but there’s a lot of time for this to be sorted out.

Tagovailoa will be on hand for the NFL Combine in late February, but Steinberg said he will not participate in drills or throws. He will get a chance to meet with any teams interested, however.
