ESPN Reveals Who Will Draft Tua Tagovailoa

ESPN revealed who will draft Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, the worldwide leader in sports looked forward to April’s draft.

Everyone agrees that Tagovailoa will go in the first round, but at the moment it is unclear where.

According to ESPN Draft insider Mel Kiper Jr., the likeliest landing spot for Tagovailoa remains the Miami Dolphins.

Miami has the No. 5 selection in this year’s proceedings, and they have been linked to Tagovailoa for the better part of a year.

Kiper sees the Dolphins taking Tagovailoa and then letting him sit behind Ryan Fitzpatrick for a year.

“You can bring Tua along, if he’s ready, fine, give him some playing time,” Kiper said.

“If he’s not, you put him on the shelf for a year and you get him ready for season No. 2 in the NFL for a guy that certainly, as a pure quarterback, is as good as it gets coming out of the collegiate ranks in a lot of years.”

Kiper also went so far as to compare Tagovailoa to Brees, which is obviously a huge honor.

Tagovailoa wrapped up his collegiate career at Alabama with 7,442 passing yards and 87 scores.
