Tua Tagovailoa expected to be healthy by April
Former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who declared last week for the 2020 NFL Draft, is expected to be healthy by April and able to participate in a throwing workout for prospective teams per AL.com.
Tagovailoa hired NFL agent Leigh Steinberg last week, who said Tua is expected to hold about a 40-minute session in which he makes 60-80 throws in front of scouts.
If Tagovailoa is ready, that session could happen at Alabama’s pro day in March. If not, he could hold a separate pro day closer to the draft, which begins April 23 in Las Vegas.
“The [intention] there is the ball never touches the ground and I think he’s gonna blow away teams in that process,” Steinberg said.
Tagovailoa underwent surgery in November to repair a dislocated hip and associated fracture. Steinberg said Tuesday that doctors continue to be “quite sure” he will make a full recovery.
The 21-year-old completed 71.4% of his passes for 2,840 yards and 33 touchdowns against three interceptions through nine games in 2019.
