Tua Tagovailoa talks about draft situation that would be 'tough to pass up'
Tua Tagovailoa has a big decision to make soon. Will he declare for the NFL Draft or return to Alabama for his senior season? Whatever his choice is, during a media session on Thursday, he will have recovered from a hip injury enough that he will be able to return to playing football in 2020.
But will it be in the NFL or in Tuscaloosa?
The answer to that question might depend on where Tagovailoa is projected to go in the NFL Draft. According to AL.com’s Matt Zenitz, a projected top 10 or 15 slot could be enough to get him to make the jump.
“I think that’d be tough to pass up,” he said, according to Zenitz.
Tagovailoa, though, made it clear that it wasn’t the sole factor that would go into his decision, stressing that discussions with his family will play a major part in what he decides to do in 2020.
“I think there’s a lot more to it than that in some aspects,” he said. “I don’t want to say too much because what me and my family talk about, we kind of want to be with me and my family.”
Tagovailoa has not determined a timetable for his return, but if he does declare for the draft, it will be interesting to see how his injury affects his stock.
