Tua Tagovailoa will be healthy enough for workout ahead of NFL Draft according to agent
NFL teams will get a chance to see Tua Tagovailoa throw and workout ahead of the upcoming NFL Draft, according to the former Alabama quarterback’s agent.
Leigh Steinberg, Tagovailoa’s agent, discussed the quarterback’s health with AL.com on Tuesday.
Steinberg told Mike Rodak that Tagovailoa should be healthy enough to hold a 40-minute workout session and make 60-80 throws ahead of the upcoming draft. Alabama will hold its Pro Day for NFL teams in March. If Tagovailoa is not able to go then, Steinberg indicated the former Crimson Tide quarterback will hold a separate day closer to the start of the 2020 NFL Draft (April 23).
“The [intention] there is the ball never touches the ground and I think he’s gonna blow away teams in that process,” Steinberg told Rodak.
Between now and the draft, Tagovailoa is planning to take in the Super Bowl festivities in Miami next month alongside former teammate Jerry Jeudy, who played at Deerfield Beach, just up the road from the site of The Big Game. Steinberg says the trip to Miami will provide the two an opportunity to mingle with some important people.
“They’ll meet people at the Super Bowl from all areas of football — coaches, general managers, owners,” Steinberg told Rodak. “It’s a convention of America.”
Tagovailoa declared early for the NFL Draft last week after taking the time to weigh his options. The former Alabama quarterback openly discussed that he was weighing the financial impacts of potentially being drafted lower in 2020 due to the injury as well as the possibility of suffering another injury in college had he returned for his senior season.
