The Samoan Bulldozer Tua Tagovailoa seemed on course to becoming the first overall pick before his injury. In Alabama’s game against Mississippi State in November, the Hawaiian Behemoth led the team to a 35-7 lead. But he had to leave the game after a sack drove his knee into the ground. That caused his hip to dislocate and fractured the posterior wall. He also suffered a broken nose and a concussion. He was carted off the field and flown to a Birmingham hospital. Then underwent surgery in Houston two days later. That would be bad enough even if it had been an isolated incident. Which it wasn’t. There is no denying Tua’s talent, but there is no ignoring either his proneness to injury.
In addition to the aforementioned hip injury, Tagovailoa left the Tide’s sixth game against Tennessee in the 2nd quarter following a high ankle sprain. He underwent surgery to repair the ankle the next day, and missed the next game against Arkansas. Tagovailoa had already sustained a high ankle sprain against Georgia in the 2018 SEC Championship Game. That forced him to undergo a tightrope procedure. Finally, he also suffered a quad injury in November 2018. And that’s pretty much why the best offshore sports betting sites have him as 2nd, 3rd, or 4th pick but not 1st.
Which other Quarterbacks will picked?
ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah are among the analysts who see Justin Herbert going to the Miami Dolphins. To be sure, no other NFL team has shown more interest on the Oregon quarterback in the past two years. In the latest example of that, the Dolphins reportedly held a video-conference session with him. If Miami did indeed select Herbert, it would be as the 5th overall pick. Unless the Dolphins traded up, which I guess isn’t impossible. Then again, Miami would do well to consider that the best NFL QB to come out of Oregon is Dan Fouts. And that was in 1973. And Dan Fouts was good but he wasn’t great either. The most recent example of Oregon’s mediocrity factory is Marcus Mariota, the 2nd overall pick in the 2015 draft. Need I really say more?
Jordan Love is a rather divisive prospect. “Though he may not be considered a surefire star, Love has plenty of teams intrigued,” Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman said. “ESPN reported the Dolphins, Saints, Patriots, Chargers, Packers and Washington all have showed interest. I’m hearing that list far underreports the number of teams taking a hard look at him, and one of those I’ve heard about is the Jets.” Additionally, the “49ers hope QB Jordan Love is available at No. 31”, according to NBC Sports.com.
On the other hand, an unnamed NFL assistant coach told Freeman that Love is “a fourth-round pick, maybe.” Furthermore, Love is among the six high-risk prospects, per NFL.com. Love threw an FBS-worst 17 interceptions in 13 games in 2019. His 3.6% interception rate ranks 102nd out of the 105 FBS quarterbacks that attended the combine since 2014. Love went 267 of 417 passes for 3,567 yards and 32 touchdowns with six picks in 2018. Compared to 293 of 473 passes for 3,402 yards and 20 touchdowns and the aforementioned 17 interceptions last season.
