Welcome to the 20/20 series. As part of our continued Dynasty Scouts coverage and in preparation for the NFL Combine, we profile 20 of the top incoming rookies of the class of 2020 by giving you 20 facts you must know.
1.) Player Name – Tua Tagovailoa
2.) College – Alabama
3.) Height/Weight – 6’1″, 218 pounds
4.) Birth Date – 03/02/1998 (21 years old)
5.) Class – Junior
6.) Basic college stats – Tua broke onto the scene on the biggest and brightest of stages as a true freshman in 2017. Having played sparingly in the regular season, he stepped up in relief of a struggling Jalen Hurts in the National Championship game versus Georgia to deliver the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime to bring home the title. He only went on to become the most prolific passers in Alabama history, while sitting out many fourth quarters and an injury-shortened junior campaign.
7.) NFL Draft round projection – We all know what he can do as a passer. He’s shown us how talented he is in every facet of the position, but there are question marks around his current hip injury and his overall injury history. Based on everything we are hearing about his recovery and numerous mock drafts, he seems to be a lock for at worst a top-15 selection, with the very real chance he goes much much higher.
