No. 2 – Too many contradictions

The closer we get to the 2020 NFL Draft, the more mock drafts we see, more opinions, rumors, and anything that will get us to the day we are all waiting for. Something that needs to be addressed is the inconsistency within the headlines about Tua. One minute we hear teams are taking Tua off of their draft board because of “injuries”. The next minute we hear teams should be trading up to take Tua, because he is a gold mine just waiting to flourish. We even hear teams are going to pass on him because they are waiting to draft Trevor Lawrence or Justin Fields.

Example A.)


Example B.)

and finally … Reason C.)

So what is the truth? Can things change in a couple of days? Absolutely! What should NOT change, is the fact that Tua Tagovailoa is one of the best quarterbacks in the past two decades. We get that he has had injuries, but he makes up for that with his skill set, leadership, and potential.

We get it, rumors are swirling around about Tua, Justin Herbert, Jordan Love, and now even Rob Gronkowski potentially coming back to the NFL. One thing is for sure though–drafting Tua is worth it.
