Tua video making rounds

Tua workout video making rounds … For those that have not seen it yet, Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa has sent a short video of him working out to all NFL teams prior to the draft. Clearly, Tagovailoa is moving without hint of the hip injury that ended his season last October. However, it also highlights the problem for Tagovailoa and teams considering selecting him at next month’s draft. Because of the restrictions the league has imposed on travel by both teams and prospects because of the COVID-19 virus, its unlikely any team will be able to work out Tagovailoa before the draft. Even more importantly perhaps, it is not clear whether individual teams will be able to have their medical staff check out Tua before the draft.  Which means they’ll be going in partially blind and if there is one thing NFL teams don’t like to do is go into a draft blind where they may be asked to take a player with a top 5-10 pick.
