Tua Tagovailoa holds virtual Pro Day in Nashville with the help of two former SEC receivers
Tua Tagovailoa’s march to the 2020 NFL Draft continues as the former Alabama signal-caller and hopeful first-round pick held a virtual Pro Day in Nashville on Thursday.
Tagovailoa has been working out with former NFL quarterback and current Nashville area high school coach Trent Dilfer in preparation for the upcoming draft. The relationship between Tagovailoa and Dilfer goes back several years as Tua participated in the Elite 11 camp formerly run by Dilfer.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Tagovailoa’s Pro Day included 55 scripted throws before doing 20 throws in a “dynamic drill” while the workout was filmed. Rapoport is also reporting that less than 10 people were allowed at the event in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
In addition to the help Tagovailoa received from Diler, his former teammate Jerry Jeudy and Vanderbilt’s Kalija Lipscomb also participated in the Pro Day event.
Following the completion of the event, Clay Travis shared that the Pro Day was being sent to all 32 NFL teams. Dilfer also shared that Tagovailoa’s Pro Day was the most impressive the coach has seen in nine years.
Now we wait to hear back from NFL teams in regards to Tagovailoa’s latest showing as he continues to rehab back from his season-ending hip surgery. Either way, it sounds like Tagovailoa has done all he can do to prove he’s worthy of one of the top selections in the 2020 NFL Draft.
