Patriots Set To Draft Tua Tagovailoa?
Are the New England Patriots going to draft Tua Tagovailoa? Some are speculating they may, if he falls deep enough in the 2020 NFL Draft.
According to Peter King of NBC Sports, he envisions a scenario where the Patriots pull the trigger on Tagovailoa.
“So Tagovailoa could drop, and Bill Belichick really doesn’t want to take a quarterback now, with one draft pick in the top 85 this year and needs all over his roster.
“And truly: I have no indication, no inside information, that says he’d do this. It’s simply a guess. But think if you’re Belichick. Because your team never finishes 3-13, you never have a chance to get one of the best quarterbacks in the college game.
“Until Tagovailoa’s hip popped out of the socket last November, forcing immediate and urgent surgery, he was 1/1A with the transcendent Joe Burrow to be the first pick in this draft.
“And you don’t want to pillage the lone first or lone second-round pick from next year’s draft. But do you do it for a great but pockmarked talent such as Tagovailoa five months after major hip surgery? I do know Belichick would have confidence in his player-procurement skills.”
Where will Tagovailoa get drafted? We’ll find out once and for all this Thursday.
