Tua Tagovailoa Draft Decision Update
A new Tua Tagovailoa draft decision update has emerged.
Coming into this college football season most people believed that Tagovailoa would be either the first or second quarterback taken off the board in the 2020 NFL Draft.
There was some debate as to whether he deserved to go ahead of Joe Burrow, but that was really the only name mentioned as a potential rival to him.
Unfortunately Tagovailoa suffered a brutal, season-ending hip injury during a midseason Alabama vs Tennessee game.
The injury not only derailed Alabama’s hopes for a National Championship campaign, but also Tagovailoa’s hopes of going at the top of the draft board.
Now, with his future in doubt, many are wondering whether Tagovailoa will still go pro this year or return to Alabama for one more season.
During a recent interview with Tide Sports, Tagovailoa acknowledged that he was having a difficult time making a decision.
“There is a risk and a reward if I stay and a risk and a reward if I go,” Tagovailoa said.
“The risk if I stay is obviously ‘Do I get hurt again?’ The reward is that I could come back and have another good year like my sophomore year and elevate myself back to the very top of the (NFL) draft.”
Based on his comments, it seems like the Alabama star is leaning towards coming back for one more year.
“If I leave, I think the risk is a little higher. That risk would be how far do I drop in the draft,” Tagovailoa said.
So will he stay or will he go? A final answer should come at some point in the next few months.
