Latest tests on Tua Tagovailoa look good

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said at the Scouting Combine he expected to be cleared to resume normal activity on March 9.

That’s today, and apparently he was.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, tests today on his dislocated and fractured (and surgically repaired) hip were “as positive as possible.”

A source described them as “very good with no concerns” (and if that source is employed by Tagovailoa that better be all they ever say).

Now is just the matter of getting ready to play again. He’s expected to have an individual workout for teams prior to the draft, where he’ll have a chance to convince them he’s well.

Prior to the November injury, he was assumed to be the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. LSU’s Joe Burrow has taken over that mantle, but Tagovailoa has drawn interest from a number of teams at the top of the draft order already, who will be very interested in his condition.

  1. He will still be there at 5 for Miami

    No need to trade up so keep your picks

  2. I just don’t get the hoopla over him. Often injured QB who was good at throwing to wide receivers who were constantly wide open. Doesn’t have excellent accuracy, arm strength, or mobility…..all those metrics are “above-average” for Tua.

    That doesn’t grade out to a Top 5 pick…..who hails from a university that hasn’t produced a productive quarterback since Kenny Stabler.

  3. Except for his 2 surgically repaired ankles and surgically repaired hip all before the age of 22, everything else looks great. Lol.

  4. He’s the best quarterback in the draft. I don’t know what film guys are watching, but his anticipation and accuracy are elite.

  5. It’s not Tua’s fault Bama hasn’t produced good NFL QBs in a long time. Just like it wasn’t Brady’s fault Michigan wasn’t a factory for great NFL QBs before him. You can say the same for Joe Montana and ND or Peyton Manning and Tennessee. Tua changed Bama football, Saban would never have changed his team for any other QB. The kid is special.

  6. I agree with the compliments for Tua and disagree with the complaints. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if he goes #2 to Washington.

  7. His people say he’s fine, and that some team should give us the money. You can trust them because they have no skin in the game.

  8. Tua would bring Juice to the Miami Dolphins Team and Organization something they have not had in over 20 years

    Not sure who you’ve been watching but Tua’s best attribute is his accuracy. He’s an incredibly accurate quarterback

  10. DO NOT THROW TUA! you are already projected between #3 and #5, you are not going to get drafted higher no matter what. However if something looks off you CAN drop. Don’t be a fool!

  11. 5 games against top 10 teams during his career. Tua’s has 3-2 record with 13 td’s & 6 INT’s. So 5 games 6 INT’s for Tua hmmm.

    Burows ‘s record 11-1 with 32 td’s & 4 INT’s

    Herbert’s record is 3-1 with 4 TD’s & 2 INT’s
